Default switched motherboards 4.4

Hi all,

considered posting this in installation and upgrading, but I did neither. Feel free to move it should it make sense to do so.

I moved an existing OpenBSD 4.4 system on two ide drives to a new motherboard, yet the same 3 3com 905ctx cards. After telling my bios to use disk-1 I was proceeding forward nicely. However, when it was done booting, I had the request to tell it what shell to boot. Both disks seem to be recognized well. However, they are "not configured". Below is my dmesg gained by using a keyspan usb serial adapter on a mac running minicom and a "set tty com0" to capture the text

Code:

Both drives -- wd0 and wd1 -- are certainly configured in the dmesg you have posted here. I am going to take a wild guess and assume you've swapped channels when you connected the drives, and wd0 and wd1have reversed. Note the size difference of the two drives, and that wd0 is the larger:
Code:
wd0 at pciide0 channel 0 drive 0: <SAMSUNG SV1204H>
wd0: 16-sector PIO, LBA, 114498MB, 234493056 sectors
wd0(pciide0:0:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 5
wd1 at pciide0 channel 1 drive 0: <IBM-DPTA-371360>
wd1: 16-sector PIO, LBA, 13042MB, 26712000 sectors
wd1(pciide0:1:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 4
And look which drive you used for booting:
Code:
root on wd1a swap on wd1b dump on wd1b
Either swap IDE connections, or edit /etc/fstab while in single user mode and change drive numbers.

Default doh

You know, it's funny. The one thing I knew I wasn't taking special note of was the drives. I actually did it intentionally to put myself in the situation to learn to know whether it would matter or not. I figured if I simply changed the disk BIOS expected to boot that it would be fine. Clearly I wasn't thinking too completely. It was much fun changing the drive again in BIOS, redirecting the display to com0 on boot, and watching it load on my MBP. Wicked fun.

Thank you very much for your assistance. It was also nice to learn exactly how you determined it. I bragged to my wife a couple of hours ago about the fact that likely within about 2 hours I'd have somebody reply who knew exactly. You guys never fail to maintain this image. Perhaps if I can spend more time in my professional life ON BSD, I will be able to contribute like so many of you do now!

Incidentally, my old MBP with what I believe to be a graphics instability has just become a 4.6 OS. Brilliant. My existing setup has 3 905ctxm NICs doing external, wired, wireless, with the wireless going to a vlan on my Catalyst, then joining with my linksys wap. That thing has become very flaky, and the MBP with a usb ethernet will do it all in one, much tighter space, and far more resources than necessary.

I love this OS

Roger that, what person can not "love" this operating system? it is a gift from the developers to non-uber fellows like myself, and once agian i thank them endlessly ....

I use an old HP TC4200 tablet for my firewall, extra PCMCIA card and BAM its been running for almost 4 years now, feeding it an upgrade every release of OpenBSD. Works great, uses less room, no heat, and it runs Snort and some other tools just great sitting on my desk looking VERY non-threatening
