Not that it matters because OP fixed their problem already and this is
an extremely silly thing to be wasting bandwidth over, but OP said they
couldn't boot off the CD, not that an already booted system couldn't
mount it.

And quite frankly, it's not polite to chide someone trying to help
unless they're offering patently wrong information or dangerous steps to
fix or diagnose an issue.  Feel free to offer your own diagnosis and
inquire for additional information, but be polite.

I mean, really, what does telling me "he already said that" (when he
didn't, to top it off!) add to this conversation.  Would it not be
better for OP to respond "I tried and it didn't work, as I said" than
for you to attempt to act smart and haughty?  But seriously, what did
your comment add to the conversation vs OP answering or no one saying
anything at all?  Nothing, literally your comment added nothing and
simply derailed a thread since it has no natural response. You didn't
build on my supposed wrongness to help OP, you simply pointed out
supposed wrongness and left it at that.

One of the reasons I enjoy the FreeBSD community is that while often
straight-forward, people are often polite and welcoming of those who
have less knowledge and experience, and conversations move forward.

Let's keep that vibe going. It's a good thing.
