Re: dual boot windows2000 pro / OBSD3.1
Here is a new status of my problem. I have downloaded GAG and installed it
on a floppy. At first time, GAG did not see the OBSD partition. That was due
to the fact that I forgot set the A6 OpenBSD flag on the partition. So I
went back to the complete install on wd0.
and restarted. Now gag see the openBSD partition and I'm able to boot the
but the booting procedure stops at the boot> prompt trying to fetch the
kernel from some hd0* disk.
I tried the following:
boot> boot wd0a:bsd
boot> boot wd0a:/bsd
My questions are:
1/ why does OBSD tried to boot from hd0* where I only have a wd0* disk (is
that some kind of link)
2/ what can I do ? I don't know what to do now or where to look to have my
3/ Is it valuable a this stage that I send the dmesg output (the one I have
when I boot from the install floppy which booting correctly ) ?
BTW, thanks to people that replied to my previous post

You can run GAG off of a floppy diskette without rewriting anyone's MBR
and save your install.
