I just got a brand new Dell Precision Workstation 340 Series (2.5Ghz,
512MB, 80GB drive). Dell ships these things with Redhat if you choose to.
I wiped off Redhat as soon as I got the machine and installed NetBSD 1.6
on it. After I rebooted, I get:
Invalid partition table
And it stops...it doesnt boot up. I've tried using 'normal bootblocks'
and 'serial bootblocks' but no difference; same error message. I went
into the BIOS and made sure the hdd is the first boot device. But that
didn't help, I can't explain this... I was so excited too. This is a
brand new computer...has this happened to someone else? Does anyone know
how to fix this? I'd appreciate any help I can get.
