6.0.1 NetBSD 6.0.1 (GENERIC) amd64
Installing NetBSD from CD on a single hard disk (160GB SATA) works OK -
partitioned disk, installed packages, rebooted and it worked fine.
I then booted from the NetBSD CD to install again, but this time used the same
disk partition settings I had previously set up, installed packages, rebooted
and received the error NetBSD MBR, No Operating System.
I repeated the same process, this time slightly adjusting the size of one of
the partitions and it worked fine.
It seems like reinstalling the system using previously defined disk partition
settings causes an error.
Here is the partition info I used:
NetBSD# df -h

/dev/wd0a 16G 63M 15G 0% /
/dev/wd0f 66G 66M 63G 0% /var

Please see Full Description.
Adjusting the size of one of the partitions for a reinstall works around the
