If you boot without wd1 plugged in, then what shows up as the new wd1?
I.e. are the drive names not moving around if you unplug wd1??
And no autoconfig in use here, right?

The above doesn't look like a RAID component.

The old config code is ugly... autoconfig would have Just Worked
Assuming that wd2 stays where it is, the following config:
1 2 0
128 1 1 1
should get you going again. I don't recall if '-c' works with this,
or whether you'll have to use '-C' to force it to configure. In
either case, you'll want to make absolutely sure that the component
wd2a above is in the 2nd component position, regardless of whether
it's called 'wd2a' or something else.
