I have previously written about a mountroot prompt, here are some details.
I have a system with an asus m3a78-emh hdmi board, a 74 gig raptor
drive, and a dual core amd am2 cpu. I have had this result with both
the amd64 and i386 systems. My steps were all conducted today as follows.
install 7.0 release
get src tree
build and install kernel
reboot and be greeted by a mountroot prompt.
It appears the drive numbering changed. /etc/fstab has the drive
partitions with the number 5, the subsequent reboot got me a number 8.
This is a test system not doing anything, so I can kick it any which way
to test stuff.
