Latest FREEBSD 10 does not boot after clean installation.
Installed using this image: FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img
Used Guided Partitioning, where I selected my only hard drive, chose Entire Disk and selected "finish". Autopartitioning looked perfectly OK: GPT, boot, ufs, swap
Installation goes OK without any error message, but after final reboot - I get no bootable device found.
I tried these command in LiveCD shell:
gpart bootcode -b /boot/mbr ada0
gpart set -a active ada0
I also tried this command
gpart destroy -F /dev/ada0
after which I re-installed BSD and it still does not boot.
Hard drive's SMART looks good. No bad sectors. BIOS settings are correct (UEFI is turned off).
I was able to successfully install previous version of FreeBSD using
FreeBSD-9.2-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img and followed exactly same steps, autopartitioning looks absolutely identical.**
I tried to install using CD version
FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso and I get exactly same issue, BIOS won't boot it.**
Please help, I'm not sure why 10.0-RELEASE won't boot.
The same problem is experienced in FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-i386-disc.iso too
