Boot loader missing after upgrade
I just updated from 2.4.4 to 2.4.4_p1 via console. On reboot, I get "GRUB Loading stage2. Read Error"
No worries - I install GAG and load the appropriate partition. PFSense finishes patching. Life is good.
On a whim, I reboot it just to see if everything's fine. An ancient bootloader for EndianFW appears. I haven't used Endian in probably 5 years. I've fresh installed PFSense on these drives at least twice, probably 3x. So I have no idea why it's still there (other than I didn't wipe it properly).
This isn't a PFSense problem - it's a 'me' problem. Another round of GAG and PFSense is back up.

so next I do a

I'm pretty sure I'm booted into ada0s2 and that there's something residual left in ada0s1. Since this is a headless, keyboardless setup, I need to get this fixed.
The mystical Google has suggested that gpart bootcode is the holy grail I'm after, but I thought I'd ask here for a more definitive answer before I break things more...

Nuke the raid stuff - visit BIOS if needed.
Btw : nuking means re reinstalling ... take config backups
