Can't give you this -- the system won't come up.
I installed NetBSD 7.1 on a Thinkpad T-430. I used the ethernet port to do the install. After the install, I set up the wireless networking. The machine has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 card, which is supposedly supported. The first time I rebooted the system, it came up, but complained it could not load the iwn firmware. I checked in /libdata/firmware and the iwn file is present.Now when I try to boot the system, it goes into a boot-time loop constantly complaining of firmware errors, can't load the iwn firmware, etc. I've run Linux and FreeBSD on this machine without wifi trouble. I'm not going to be able to help you debug this, as I need a working system on this machine, was hoping the quality of NetBSD had progressed since the last time I tried it a couple of years ago, but ran into this; so I will have to install something else.
