FreeBSD-CURRENT guest: disk, partition and file system grown, no longer boots (guru meditation)

Postby grahamperrin » 18. Apr 2017, 04:04

Host: TrueOS Desktop, based on FreeBSD-CURRENT.

Guest: FreeBSD-CURRENT. Originally a 20 GB virtual hard disk, the UFS file system became full so I grew the disk (to 40 GB), the partition and the file system. Now the guest will no longer start.

Immediately after the VirtualBox prompt to select a boot device (I refrain from keying F12):

Any suggestions?

Please note

The case above should not be confused with recent FreeBSD bug 218698, which affects multiple guests.

In the case above, as far as I can tell, only a FreeBSD-CURRENT guest is affected. (My GhostBSD and Windows 7 guests run without difficulty, and so on.)

maybe an issue with the boot sector

I posted to ircs://chat.freenode.net/#freebsd

Amongst the reactions to a cross-post to ircs://chat.freenode.net/#vbox (thanks to rfm):

… a triple fault (line1063). I would guess the boot sector for the hard disk got smotched somehow
