RE: cannot mount disk with hammer file system

HI Antonio.


Thank you for your posts and help.  I have taken a screenshot of the mounted etc/fstab or better said /mnt/etc/fstab and I have also ls –l /mnt/dev/serno.  The only thing is I have not looked into the loader.conf which I reckon is mostly likely either in /boot or /etc.  I think the problem is that dragonflybsd is not creating the devices upon boot because I have moved the system from vmware workstation 6. 5 to virtualbox 4.04.  I have looked into the man 8 boot page, however there is considerably less information about dragonfly bsd on the web than linux.  I have converted linux physical machines using rsync, cpio, and netcat to vmware, but I have little experience with dragonfly.


Kind regards,

Úlfar Ellenson

Hi Úlfar,

Boot the livecd and mount the disk where DFly is installed in, then provide this:

- Do a 'ls -l /dev/serno'
- fstab of the installed system (not the LiveCD)
- loader.conf from the installed system (it should be in the boot directory)

My first time posting on this list.   My problem in a nutshell is I installed dragonfly bsd 2.8 in vmware workstation.  I reinstalled the host system that vmware workstation was on and decided on using virtualbox.  I imported my dragonfly bsd vmware workstatation vmdk files into virtualbox.  Upon boot in virtualbox I run into the problem of mounting the disk.  I am prompted at the boot prompt to detect the disk that the system resides on.  I have tried hammer:ad0s1, hammer:ad0s1a, hammer:ad0s1d and just ad0s1.  I am however not able to boot the system.  I have also booted from the live iso image and mounted the system manually into /mnt using mount_hammer /dev/ad0s1a /mnt and took a screenshot of /etc/fstab.  I however ask if there is a simple way to fix my mount problem.  Any information needed in regards to solving this problem will be gladly appended.
