DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-07
Re: Dragonfly won't boot
:I did try that earlier, but I booted from the CD, logged in as 'installer'
:and ran the disk utilities/install boot blocks and checked 'packet mode'
:and tried again. Still no go.
:OK...success! After the last paragraph, I thought of just moving the drive
:to another box and it boots there just fine. This is a different
:motherboard, a Gigabyte with an AMD Duron.
: I still have 'packet mode' checked, BTW.
:More data... I had FreeBSD 5.2.1 on the 2nd box, so I also tried putting
:that drive in the box that wouldn't boot DragonFly and it booted 5.2.1 OK.
:Both drives are recognized by both BIOSes and they are both in CS mode.
Damn. packet mode should have done the trick. I suggest double checking
with boot0cfg -v (from a CD shell prompt)... no need to reinstall.
Another possibility is that a BIOS setting exists to change the HD
Maybe it's a serial port issue. Try creating a /boot.config file
on the HD's root partition with '-V' in it (without the single quotes).
