Subject:   How to create a partition for FreeBSD 9.0?
Message-ID:  <1353795280.2662.12.camel@q>

I use the amd64 install DVD.

With or without deleting, I can't format a bootable FreeBSD partition to
ada0s1, aka Linux /dev/sda1. FWIW if I reinstall GRUB legacy
to /dev/sda, the boot flag will be set for the extended
partition. /dev/sda1 is an empty ext3 partition, size 57.83 GiB.

Regards,
Ralf
