i don't know if this is a known issue or not but i don't recall seeing
it posted to the list.

i had to turn off dma to install also, but i have seen posts in relation
to that.

anyways, the installer cd fails at the following:

Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0
start_init: trying /sbin/init
start_init: trying /sbin/oinit
start_init: trying /sbin/init.bak
start_init: trying /stand/sysinstall

a full serial console log can be found at:


i tried installing on the local console as well as the serial console
using only one download of the 5.1-r mini disc but i burned it to two
diffrent cd-rs on two different burners and it failed in the same place
on each.  i also changed cd-roms on the machine i was trying to install
to, but no joy.
