comment booting FreeBSD 9 from USB stick: boot error
I would think so too, but I've double-checked every step of what I've been doing and went through the entire process several times before asking here - same result. Apart from the different OSs, I can't seem to see any other reason why the USB stick created under Linux does not boot. BTW: I ended up installing Windows just for the purpose of running the USB stick creation tool mentioned on the FreeBSD site.

comment booting FreeBSD 9 from USB stick: boot error
In my question, I quoted from the FreeBSD manual page; on my system, I did use the correct device to dd the USB stick - I guess I would have noticed if I had dd'd the installation image to some other device in my system ;-)

comment ZFS on FreeBSD: recovery from data corruption
Thanks for that tip! :-) I was looking into OpenSolaris back in 2009 or so when I started this whole ZFS business, but unfortunately, it did not support the controllers I'm using - this is consumer grade hardware after all. Just recently, I've also looked at OpenIndiana, but I'm not sure if the situation has changed. I might upgrade the controllers to SAS at some stage and consider migrating then.

yep, that's a very good point! and it's also the reason why i haven't updated this article with my progress yet - still busy clearing out replacement hard drives...

comment same harddrive on the same controller, but different cylinder/head/sector
serial numbers as reported by GSmartControl: 6VPAR7SL and 6VPCY3TX. Don't think that gives any clues without some Seagate hard drive production facility database, does it ?
