not available, bootloader can't see kernel
On a silver core2-duo based silver iMac, or Shuttle XS35V2 (Intel NM10
chipset), the install goes through normally, except that the drives had to be
zeroed in another environment first (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<blah>) first, to
avoid an error claiming it could not open the device. Normal configurations
were done (enable sshd, set root password, etc), but only things the installer
does (nothing on the shell).
After reboot, the boot loader tries all of it's combinations, and gives up.
dev lists the devices (iMac values shown, but aside from disc size, they were
identical on the shuttle), but ls returns an error.
disk hd0 size 232 GB
hd0a(unknown) hd0b(unknown) hd0c(unknown
ls : No suck file or directory
Attempting to use the bootloader from the install CD is also unsuccessful.
If it's at all important, prior to attempting these installations, the iMac had
OSX 10.6 installed on it's drive, and the shuttle had FreeBSD installed.
Install NetBSD on core2-duo based silver iMac, or Shuttle XS35V2 (Intel NM10
chipset), let the insaller install the bootcode, finish normally
