Quick tip: booting your FreeBSD hard drive install from CD

  View Printable Version 
FreeBSDOk, so you installed an additional operating system on a partition of your hard drive, and everything is ok, except that the FreeBSD boot manager was overwritten, so you can't boot into your FreeBSD installation on the hard drive to fix it.
Don't worry, help is at hand.
Simply insert your FreeBSD install CD, and boot from it. Try to read and remember what the hard drive that you want to boot from is called buy the boot loader (it will be disk0, disk1 or something like that).
When it gets to the boot meny, select "boot loader prompt".
First, unload the kernel that was loaded from the CD: unload kernel
Now you need to set the hard drive as the default boot device. Say that the disk you want to boot from is called disk0, and FreeBSD is installed on the first partition, also knows as slice 1 or s1.
Then you do this: set currdev=disk0s1
Load your kernel: load kernel Then you boot with boot
Easy?
