Ok, it looks like some work will have to be done on the installer.
It's probably installing the disklabel on the wrong device.

I hope someone includes an INSTALL_HOWTO on the 1.10-REL ISO. Us users
will need a list of typical examples like:
1.) fdisk
2.) disklabel
3.) newfs
4.) Installing bootloader
5.) Getting files & devs from CD to HD

I'll roll a custom installer from source if necessary, don't feel
pressured. I'm not going to worry about it until July anyway.

Do you have the sources which are targetted to pkgsrc somewhere? Maybe other people can help out?

cheers

#6 Updated by bastyaelvtars over 7 years ago

pkgsrc-wip contains them and I am having Lua problems right now but it
is being discussed on the bsd installer mailing list. There will be a
7-10 day hiatus in the progress, though. I will continue after 15th.

#7 Updated by corecode over 5 years ago

installer has been put into base and reworked. does this still happen?
