I have installed FreeBSD 9.1 on the second partition of an external hard disk and I'm not able to get my computer to boot from it. FreeBSD was installed using the FreeBSD memstick image dd'd onto a USB flash drive.
The first partition is an ntfs partition which has my backup. When I found the need to have a FreeBSD installation, I "shrank" the first partition (in windows) to get free space to install FreeBSD and then installed FreeBSD. It never asked to install a boot manager.
When I first tried to boot, it failed without any error message (maybe there was no boot manager installed). So I booted from my flash drive, and ran the command
boot0cfg -B /dev/ad1) (ad1 refers to the external hard disk). Now on booting, it displays a menu like:
F5 First disk
and on pressing F1 or F2 I get the error message: "BOOTMGR is missing". What could the problem be?
Please help me boot into my FreeBSD installation.
