multi OS booting

Post by Dean Rot » Wed, 27 Mar 1996 04:00:00



My computer has three disks configured thusly:

wd0  BSDI 2.0
wd1  Linux
sd0  FreeBSD 2.1

I have no problem booting BSDI(default)or Linux (via floppy).

How do I get FreeBSD to boot?

Easiest solution:  disable wd0 and wd1 in the BIOS.

Useable solution:  as above, then wire down your SCSI disk to be sd2,
                   rebuild your kernel, and re-enable wd0 and wd1

Best solution:     apply Bruce Evans' patches to the boot blocks that
                   allow an arbitrary mapping between BIOS disk numbers
                   and BSD subunit numbers (posted to FreeBSD-current,
                   should be available in the mailing list archives
                   that are accessible via the Web server, search for
                   ``How do I boot from sd5...'')

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
