shows NetBSD for partition 0 and the others (1-3) unused.  For partition

  start 63, size 976773105 (476940 MB, Cyls 0-60801/80/63), Active

/usr/mdec/boot are identical in all 4 places.

installboot -v -o timeout=20 /dev/rwd0a /usr/mdec/bootxx_ffsv1

still have the same issue.  I wonder if there is any sort of bios issue.
 Looks like AMIBIOS Version 08.00.10
