1.0b3 -> 1.0b4 Upgrade Disk/Partition Issues



  • Has anyone else attempted to perform an upgrade of a running system from 1.0b3 to 1.0b4?  I've tried it on two boxes; both failed to boot after the upgrade due to what appeared to be an invalid disk configuration of some sort.  I don't know BSD very well, so I'm not sure exactly what the problem was…  but I've been able to reproduce the issue, if that matters.

    If it's something as simple as we shouldn't be using the firmware upgrades until the first actual release of 1.0, then I apologize in advance.

    Thanks



  • A number of people have.  What was the error after upgrading?
