installing GhostBSD alongside FreeBSD

Post by ouaille_aime_scier_ »

Hello guys,

I take advantage of my vacation to test a multiboot installation with GhostBSD and FreeBSD in uefi but apparently refind manager launches GhostBSD in any case when I see two entries, one for Ghost and the other for FreeBSD.
Is there a particular manipulation to make so that the two systems launch well each on their side?
Thank you in advance for your enlightening answers and great thanks for your good job on the distro.

I have removed the FreeBSD entry, but I might be able to find it and add it back.

Hello ericbsd, no problem, if I can install both OS on the same machine that's fine, otherwise I'll install each on a different computer.
Thank you for your answer.

you need to mount your EFI partition and change add something like this for FreeBSD in refind.conf in the ghostbsd folder.

Code: Select all

menuentry "GhostBSD" {
    loader \EFI\ghostbsd\bootx64-ghostbsd.efi
    icon \EFI\Boot\icons\os_ghostbsd.png
}
I am not sure how freebsd set the bootx64.efi so at least this should help.
