I am trying to install the RC1 on my main machine. It was running beta 3 
but after a poweroutage I had to replace some damaged parts. etc.
But now I get errors while trying to boot the install disc both from an 
sata drive but also the cdrom

!warning setfeatures set transfer mode taskqueue timeout - completing 
request directly !

!Setfeatures enable Rcache taskqueue timeout !

! setfeatures enable wcache taskqueue timeout !

! Read_big retrying (x retry left) !

I have had the latter often on this machine but it always bumps into 
sysinstall sooner or later, but this time a whole night before locking 
up completely.

removing the sata disk from the setup removes the second and third 
error. the machine is scsi mainly

Any suggestions ?

would using the usb install image work ??
