Compiled nanobsd and got this error at boot:

Code:
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a [ro]...
Root mount waiting for: usbus1 usbus0
uhub0: 4 ports with 4 removable, self powered
Root mount waiting for: usbus1
uhub1: 4 ports with 4 removable, self powered
mountroot: waiting for device /dev/ad0s1a...
Mounting from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a failed with error 19.

Loader variables:
  vfs.root.mountfrom=ufs:/dev/ad0s1a
  vfs.root.mountfrom.options=ro

Manual root filesystem specification:
  <fstype>:<device> [options]
      Mount <device> using filesystem <fstype>
      and with the specified (optional) option list.

    eg. ufs:/dev/da0s1a
        zfs:tank
        cd9660:/dev/cd0 ro
          (which is equivalent to: mount -t cd9660 -o ro /dev/cd0 /)

Listed the available drives, ..?

Noticed that the disk names do not match, ..

ofcourse , .. after typing ufs:/dev/ada0s1

Code:
mountroot> ufs:/dev/ada0s1a
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ada0s1a []...
mount: /dev/ad0s3: No such file or directory
mount -o ro /dev/ad0s3 /conf/default/etc failed: dropping into /bin/sh
# random: unblocking device.
Since this is a configuration file specific to this hardware. Maybe, it should be changed to the actual device name. So when someone wants to play with it, they're provided with an actual working configuration file ?

What you seeing is that the /nanobsd/pcengines/ files are all real old.
In the past ad0 was the correct name for a hard drive. It has changed to ada0 for a while now.

My procedure is to make a new directory under nanobsd and copy /nanobsd/embedded/common into my new directory.
Then I use /nanobsd/embedded/i386.cfg as a template for my config.

For example here is my Checkpoint U-5 board config:
/usr/src/tools/tools/nanobsd/checkpoint/checkpoint.cfg
Code:
NANO_ARCH=i386
NANO_KERNEL=GENERIC
NANO_DRIVE=ada0
NANO_NAME=checkpoint
NANO_BOOTLOADER="/boot/boot0"
NANO_BOOT_MBR="/boot/boot0"
NANO_BOOT0CFG="-o packet -s 2 ${NANO_DRIVE}"
customize_cmd cust_pkgng
NANO_PACKAGE_LIST="pkg dnsmasq"

. common        # Pull in common definitions, keep last
I also modify /nanobsd/checkpoint/common

As you can see from my sample I am also including packages and have a /nanobsd/pkg/ directory for those.

Warner has added the embedded directory as an extension of NanoBSD.
You should read /usr/src/tools/tools/nanobsd/embedded/README for details.

If your target is a 64-bit CPU you can use this instead.
NANO_ARCH=amd64

Thank you for pointing that out, .. it was in fact my next thing on my list to see, on how to do this.
