Hi Úlfar,Boot the livecd and mount the disk where DFly is installed in, then provide this:- Do a 'ls -l /dev/serno'- fstab of the installed system (not the LiveCD)- loader.conf from the installed system (it should be in the boot directory)
Thanks,Antonio Huete2011/2/23 Úlfar Ellenarson <uel at>

Added information regarding boot problem. 
The message upon boot is:Mounting root from hammer:serno/000000000000000000001.s1d

 Hi. My first time posting on this list.   My problem in a nutshell is I installed dragonfly bsd 2.8 in vmware workstation.  I reinstalled the host system that vmware workstation was on and decided on using virtualbox.  I imported my dragonfly bsd vmware workstatation vmdk files into virtualbox.  Upon boot in virtualbox I run into the problem of mounting the disk.  I am prompted at the boot prompt to detect the disk that the system resides on.  I have tried hammer:ad0s1, hammer:ad0s1a, hammer:ad0s1d and just ad0s1.  I am however not able to boot the system.  I have also booted from the live iso image and mounted the system manually into /mnt using mount_hammer /dev/ad0s1a /mnt and took a screenshot of /etc/fstab.  I however ask if there is a simple way to fix my mount problem.  Any information needed in regards to solving this problem will be gladly appended.
   kær kveðju/kind regards,
