I'm at work now, so please forgive me, I'm going from memory here.....but, at home, I've got a standard PC with two drives/disks, one 80 gig SATA and one 40 gig SATA:
On install, PC BSD recognized both drives, but only gave me the option of actually mounting/using the primary drive, ad0.
[I couldn't see any way of mounting the secondary drive in fstab during
So, after installation, I went back in with Sysintall and, using fdisk, I added /dev/ad1s1 and also used Disk Label to format the 'slice.'
Then, I went back into /etc/fstab and added it, something like:
Disk Mount Point FS dump-freq pass-num
ad1s1 /dev/ad1s1 ufs 1, 1
in the usual manner....
When I went to reboot, fsck basically freaked out, saying it "couldn't find the disk....will try to check........can't check it....Arrrgh!" etc.
Sorry, don't recall the error message, but it was to the effect that fsck couldn't check either
disk and now could not boot the OS
and promptly dumped into a command line.
Again, sorry for the vagueness of the error message, but I'm at work and have no access to it here.
Based on the poor info I gave you here, does anyone have any idea of what I may have done wrong?
Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.....
Thanks for bearing with me.
PS: upon further reading in this forum it occurs to me that I never created a mount point called /mnt/ad1s1. :idea:
Could that be the root of my problem?
