Installing on slice

Post by peter » Sun May 12, 2013 5:12 pm

H!

I've split a 500GB disk into 3 slices (ad0s1,ad0s2,ad0s3) and installed GhostBSD on ad0s3.
When rebooting the boot process hangs with:

FreeBSDx86boot
Defaul:t 0:ad(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel

Isn't it possible to use a partion ? Or do I have to use the first one? Something else ?

There seem to be no FreeBSD solution. But installing DrangonFly on another slice with its boot manager helps. May be grub or another boot manger will do it to.

Anyway, I got it running for now ...
