comment How to make a custom FreeBSD distribution
As soon as you keep all the things in / (no other partition), then there is good chance you got something almost working (you might still need to fix a few conf files).

This is a risk assessment here: if the dying disk failed during any operation, what you prefer: having some data saved or not ?

It really depend on the RAID driver/card, but sequentially is not a simple concept for multi-head/platter disks. So sure, you would gain some time vs randomly, but that would not be x6, nor x6 less stress.

To really restart ALL services, you had to go a bit further (ie udev, cpuspeed and some others are is still up at init 1). But in Mohammad Etemaddar case it might be enough.

No: there is no such mechanism built in cron. You had to do it yourself. Usually lock are a good place to start (or the presence of a pid file for a naive and simplistic approach).
