    Solved GEOM: invalid disklabel

    ZFS zfsboot - Is it possible to have zfsboot import/mount filesystems under the boot pool?

    UFS Disk repair after mounting FreeBSD system within OpenBSD

    I was trying to dual boot both FreeBSD 10.3 and OpenBSD 6.0 on my machine by installing the two OS's to different disks and selecting the disk I wanted in the bios. This was successful until I mounted the FreeBSD disk within OpenBSD (and neglected to add a readonly option). The FreeBSD system no...
