   Creating a bootable disk is possible, but difficult and there is no comprehensive information about this. You have to try much until you get the real results.      Creating a bootable disk is possible, but difficult and there is no comprehensive information about this.

   This task is about creating documentation how to use the tool [[!template id=man name="gpt" section="8"]] and maybe [[!template id=man name="installboot" section="8"]] how to create GPT labels, how they interact with MBRs as created by [[!template id=man name="fdisk" category="8"]], how wedges work on this, and how you would make it bootable.      This task is about creating documentation how to use the tool [[!template id=man name="gpt" section="8"]] and maybe [[!template id=man name="installboot" section="8"]] how to create GPT labels, how they interact with MBRs as created by [[!template id=man name="fdisk" section="8"]], how wedges work on this, and how you would make it bootable.  
   You should also describe which problems you have and what people might edge on when trying to create a gpt-bootable disk.      You should also describe which problems you have and what people might edge on when trying to create a gpt-bootable disk.

 * **Task: Howto: Encrypt the hard disk with NetBSD**: NetBSD has its very nice cryptographic device driver [[!template id=man name="cgd" category="4"]].

   Though cgd will be in sysinst for the next version of NetBSD, the current ones are still without, so there should be a special emphasis of how to add cgd during system installation.      Though cgd will be in sysinst for the next version of NetBSD, the current ones are still without, so there should be a special emphasis of how to add cgd during system installation.  
   Note that support for full-disk encryption has been introduced in NetBSD-current, in the form of a ramdisk (cgdroot.kmod). It still lacks official documentation at the moment, but was detailed [on the mailing-lists](http://mail-index.netbsd.org/current-users/2013/03/thread2.html#022311).      Note that support for full-disk encryption has been introduced in NetBSD-current, in the form of a ramdisk (cgdroot.kmod).
