[PC-BSD Testing] Two problems

Is PC-BSD on the first or the second disk? Wonders out loud if EasyBCD understands a second disk--worth checking its website to find out its limitations. I can update Handbook if you find out that it expects everything to be on the first disk.

Cheers,

Dru

Hello, 
 
why do you think it's not a logical partition.
 
I choose for use the whole disk so I think that the installer makes the partitions the right way.

I've not done any playing with EasyBCD. Did it detect the FreeBSD
partition correctly? What is the exact text error you get when it tries
to boot?

  

  

  It looks like it.
  I have this choice:
   
  partition 1 (0xa5 - 57Gib)
   
  The exact message is 
   
  boot error

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't BSD need to reside on a primary
partition? I don't recall reading that it can be booted off a logical
partition. At the very least, the bootloader has to be on the primary
partition.
