Re: install/29122 (Install completes but system does not boot)

Synopsis: Install completes but system does not boot

Feedback timeout; also, this problem was common back in 1.6 days or so and
was typically caused by guessing the fake BIOS geometry wrong during install,
so the MBR code would try to load the partition boot code from the wrong
sector. Between BIOS and NetBSD improvements the problem went away a long
time ago.
