View Full Version : booting from CD with F-BSD bootloader

Since I have installed PC-BSD I can not boot from CD. I don't know how to use the FreeBSD bootloader so could I get some help here?

Set CDROM as first boot device in your bios to boot from cdrom. If problem isnt so obvious - please post detailed bug description here (i.e. what are you trying to do and what goes wrong)

If you installed PC-BSD with its bootloader, when you restart your computer, it's show your operarting system(s) in front of function keys, for instance, mine is:
This means if I hit F1, I'll load OpenBSD, if I hit F2, I'll load PC-BSD, and if I hit F3, I'll load Windows.

no, I'm at the bootloader of:
how would I boot from a cd there? I tried to boot it from bios, the obvious solution, but my cd keeps popping open on bootup, this didnt start happening until i had taken through an airport, could X-Rays have done this?

BIOS can not read your kernel from the CD, try to burn it again w/ different media (CD-R). To be honest, I have 3 PC-BSD CDs and only 1 can always boot and the other two are on and off.
