I've installed FreeBSD on an Intel SS4200-EHW which has four hard disks and a flash DOM (Disk On Module) disk through an IDE interface. I want to install FreeBSD on the Flash DOM. In order to get the FreeBSD installer to find the Flash DOM, I've used the hints from here - by adding the following "hints" before "booting" the installer:
set hint.ata.0.at="isa" set hint.ata.0.port="0x1F0" set hint.ata.0.irq="14"
The installer finds the correct disk and installs without any issues. I also made sure the disk/partition is set with the bootable flag.
When I boot from the Flash DOM, I get the following error message: "No ufs" and end up with a prompt starting with "boot:".
Not sure why this is. Might be that I wasn't able to persist the hint information to any configurations files during the install. Anyone knowing how I can ensure that this get persisted. Any other way to get further to diagnose this issue?
Update Based on feedback I've included the boot image I am stranded at:
The "tab" key doesn't work.
Also I booted PC-BSD to try to edit the files from there and I'm able to mount all other partitions except the boot partition. The image below shows error message when trying to access the MBR partition:
