PC-BSD

Asked by Al on 2013-09-29

Hello community. I am triple booting with

Hybryde /dev/sda1
PC-BSD /dev/sda3
Ubuntu 12.04 /dev/sda4

Hybryde and Ubuntu boots fine but I cannot figure out how I can get PC-BSD to boot. I guess I don't know what I am doing. Any help would be great.

See the above regarding chainloading. Remember that the hard drives (hd) start counting at 0, while the slices start counting at 1! So i'm guessing you'll be using
set root='(hd0,3)' instead of what I used on my system:
set root='(hd1,1)' (my pc uses 4 HD's)

HTH,

PS : the above worked for PCBSD9.1, but I just loaded 9.2 and I see a grub2 menu was added by PCBSD so luckily I can pick which HD boots in the BIOS. Now working on this solution.... or maybe I'll reformat and skip the MBR stuff....

Can you help with this problem?
