I have a laptop with FreeBSD on encrypted ZFS. When I try to load with FreeBSD USB stick I always asked for geli passphrase. What is the strange behavior?? It is boot USB drive, isn't it? And if I wish to make a clean FreeBSD install? Tried with nomadBSD - all the same, tried with Arch...
Fresh install, Encrypted raidz, 5 disks. Boot fails at error:
zfs i/o error - all block copies unavailable
What could cause this? I've reinstalled several times and same fault every time. FreeBSD has worked before with this same computer. Booted up with Ubuntu-live and disks seems to be OK.
I installed FreeBSD 11 with encrypted ZFS from the official live CD. After using the system fine for some days, I changed something in /boot/loader.conf then can not boot. I searched and the way to recover is to boot from live CD and type:
# cd /tmp/
# mkdir mounted
# geli attach /dev/ada0p3
I like to install FreeBSD 11.0 with encrypted ZFS root and boot environments using four disks (stripped and mirrored). After the first reboot I got the following error:
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Consoles: internal video/keyboard
BIOS drives C: is disk0
BIOS drives D: is disk1...
