Thank you for your posts and help. I have taken a screenshot of the mounted etc/fstab or better said /mnt/etc/fstab and I have also ls –l /mnt/dev/serno. The only thing is I have not looked into the loader.conf which I reckon is mostly likely either in /boot or /etc. I think the problem is that dragonflybsd is not creating the devices upon boot because I have moved the system from vmware workstation 6.5 to virtualbox 4.04. I have looked into the man 8 boot page, however there is considerably less information about dragonfly bsd on the web than linux. I have converted linux physical machines using rsync, cpio, and netcat to vmware, but I have little experience with dragonfly.
Boot the livecd and mount the disk where DFly is installed in, then provide this:
- Do a 'ls -l /dev/serno'
- fstab of the installed system (not the LiveCD)
- loader.conf from the installed system (it should be in the boot directory)

Added information regarding boot problem.
The message upon boot is:
Mounting root from hammer:serno/000000000000000000001.s1d
no disk named 'serno/00000000000000000000001.s1d'
hammer_mountroot: can't find devvp
boot mount failed: 6
My first time posting on this list. My problem in a nutshell is I installed dragonfly bsd 2.8 in vmware workstation. I reinstalled the host system that vmware workstation was on and decided on using virtualbox. I imported my dragonfly bsd vmware workstatation vmdk files into virtualbox. Upon boot in virtualbox I run into the problem of mounting the disk. I am prompted at the boot prompt to detect the disk that the system resides on. I have tried hammer:ad0s1, hammer:ad0s1a, hammer:ad0s1d and just ad0s1. I am however not able to boot the system. I have also booted from the live iso image and mounted the system manually into /mnt using mount_hammer /dev/ad0s1a /mnt and took a screenshot of /etc/fstab. I however ask if there is a simple way to fix my mount problem. Any information needed in regards to solving this problem will be gladly appended.
kær kveðju/kind regards,
