Installation failure of 4.0 BETA 2

Postby miljoneir » Mon Jul 14, 2014 8:38 pm

Hello, this is my first attempt at installing your os.
I have to choose manual partitioning because I want to dual boot it with windows.
Sadly, the installer fails almost immediately. When checking the installer log I find this:

Code: Select all
kern.geom.debugflags: 0 -> 16
Running gpart modify on /dev/ada0
Running: gpart modify -t freebsd -i 3 /dev/ada0
gpart: index '3': No such file or directory
EXITERROR: Error 1: gpart modify -t freebsd -i 3 /dev/ada0
Unmounting: /mnt
Running: umount -f /mnt
Unmounting DVD/USB media: /cdmnt-install
Running: umount -f /cdmnt-install


My PC has an ivybridge pentium. Installing to a corsair 60GB SSD with a rather odd partitioning (200mb free space - 30 gb windows - rest is one partition used for bsd without swap)
Please, I was installing this for fun, so no big deal about it not working. I just wanted to post the issue.

It will be useful to know how the partition was made and if it is a MBR or GPT scheme disk.

It has a MBR. I created the partition by removing an existing FAT32 and filling all the empty space with new one using UFS+SUJ.

Did you do a first partition with / and the second one as a swap? Also you can use auto partitioning by selecting the free space press auto.
