It should have been formatted (newfs'ed) before the actual install started.
Are you sure you sized your partitions appropriately?

Hi everybody!

I have just bought new HDD 50 GB IDE.... but I don't know how to format
I am boot from CD-RW: freebsd5.1.iso (it downloaded from
and when freebsd started installing:
/write failed, filesystem is full
Maybe it because hard disk not formatted?
And how i can do it?

Best Regards, Denis.
