Mount Root error on transferred hard disk
i got a defective mobo and I had to replace it. the hd where the pf is installed has no problem.
Well, the HD has now a new mobo environment so I am expecting a mount root error. The silly part is I have no idea how to resolve this.
Any one please, much much appreciate.
Please let me know what info do you need.
Tell us about this mobo please.
I forgot the screen dump. Below please.
List of GEOM mamanged disk devices:
ufsid/50d7c12294b75762 ad4s1b ad4s1a ad4s1 ad4
Manual root filesystem specification:
<fstype>: <device>Mount <device>using filesystem <fstype>eg. ufs:/dev/da0s1a
This is equivqlent to: mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /
about your question, what mobo info do you need? the one that broke down of the new one?</fstype></device></device></fstype>
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo E7500 @2.93GHz
I am gona be using the onboard NIC plus another LAN Card.
This HD is one of the pf that I have installed directly to the HD (not VM).
Since all the managed devices are ad4 I'll assume that's where the HD is connected.
Start by trying at the mountroot> prompt:
If it boots successfully with that then edit the fstab to point at the correct locations once it's booted.
it rebooted but it encountered an error:
ad4: FAILURE - READ_DMA48 status=51 <ready, dsc,="" error="">error= <uncorrectable>LBA=100748… and alot of nubers.
does this mean it's a physical hard disk failure?</uncorrectable></ready,>
Not necessarily. It probably means it's trying to access the disk using some DMA mode but the disk or controller doesn't support it.
What disk/controller hardware are you using? Which pfSense install type? 32 or 64bit?
am using a SATA HDD.
OK, and what pfSense version and install type is on that disk?
Installed via USB
Ah, sorry, by install type I meant is it a full install, standard kernel maybe a full install, embedded kernel or is it a NanoBSD image? Also is it 32 or 64bit? That's probably not relevant but it's good to get all the details so other users can spot things.
Here's a thread describing a very similar (maybe identical) problem: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=18463
Not really a useful outcome though.
I would try changing the HDD mode in the bios. If the SATA mode is set to AHCI try legacy or IDE compatible.
It could just be dead drive. Could be a bad cable or cable not inserted fully.
