Re: Switching from IDE AHCI... reinstall necessary?


Thanks for your reply.

Well, i had to install netbsd asap, and started to install using ide controller. I have only one disk, and netbsd-4.99.62 recognized it as single disk using sata controller: I remember there was notice during installation "There is one disk and you will install netbsd on wd0" -- or something similar.

I wonder, (if it is supported in the future), and i enable AHCI, will it be
necessary to re-install everything?

If you have more than one controller type on your system with disks

renumbered.  For example, what was "wd0" before might possibly be "wd1"
or something different if your controller is matched by a different

At worst, you'd need to adjust your /etc/fstab.  I suspect that's not
too likely.  You'll defintely not need to re-install though.
