Dear Friends,

I am new to Nanobsd and trying to create an iso image which can be
installed on vmware machine.

I created an iso image using the disk image
(/usr/obj/nanobsd.full/_.disk.image) generated according to steps
given in NanoBSD
How To <> .

VM could boot up with this ISO image, but I got an error as below before I
could get OS installation prompt:

mount: /dev/ad0s3: No such file or directory
mount -o ro /dev/ad0s3 /conf/default/etc failed: droppnig into /bin/sh
Cannot read termcap database;
using dumb terminal settings.

do I need to use different commands or options to create iso image while
using script?

Please help.

Many thanks in advance for your help and time.

Best Regards,
- ganesh
