Re: /boot/loader bug

:with the latest patch (extended slices) applied to the loader, one of
:my machines does not boot any more. I get this message:
:Can't work out which disk we are booting from.
:Guessed BIOS device 0xFFFFFFFF not found by probes, defaulting to
:My boot disk, so far, is an S-ATA drive which shows up as master on
:IDE channel 2. There's another (pure IDE) disk as master on IDE
:channel 0, which just holds backups, but no system at all. I guess the
:loader is now trying to boot off this IDE disk and doesn't probe for a
:system on the S-ATA drive. I did so, of course, in former
:(pre-extended-slice) releases...hmpf!
:cd /pub
:more beer

    Hmm.  We didn't change anything in that part of the loader.  It should
    have been able to still identify the disk.

    What does it say about your BIOS drives?   It should say something 

    BIOS CD is cd0
    BIOS drive A: is disk0
    BIOS drive C: is disk1
    BIOS drive D: is disk2
    BIOS blah blah blah available memory

    Does the loader see both of your disk drives ?
