The "dump device not defined" usually means that debugging
information is available but cannot be placed because, well,
the device is not configured. Serial console helps here.

When exactly do you get "3%" and then fail. Is it during the
newfs (format) stage? Or the transfer stage? Have you tried
a different CD? Are you using a CD? More information can be
of help here. Also, there is a FreeBSD-questions@ mailing list
where you might get more help. If you provide a little bit more
about your specific case that is. Thanks,
