#212 closed System Defect (fixed)

PCBSD Installer won't recognize new AHCI disks (/dev/ada*) as system disk

Reported by: delphij Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 8.0
Component: Installer Version: 8.0-ALPHA
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


How to repeat:

At the beastie menu during boot, escape into loader prompt, load ahci, boot, then on a system with AHCI enabled, the AHCI disks won't get recognized by the installer, which thinks the disk does not exist.

It would be probably more reliable to get disk list through sysctl kern.disks?

Note that this problem is found in PCBSD 8.0-BETA

  • Resolution set to fixed

Fixed in SVN. ada[0-9] will be found now.

I like idea about using kern.disks though. I will experiment with that change after 8.0-releases, I don't want to make that big of a change this late in the game, but it does seem the better way to go in the future.
