I copied over a NetBSD install image to my system and tried following
your example. It did work just like you said. Below is the disk line I
disk = [ 'file:/home/glen/img/netbsd.img,0x1,w',
So the template I followed from you was:
disk = [ 'file:/path/to/image/filename.img,0x1,w',
I am still trying to do this using the install cd so I can install other
OSes. Currently I have:
disk = [ 'file:/path/to/image/filename.img,0x1,w', 'phy:/dev/cd0a,0x2,r' ]
I keep seeing this "xbd IO domain 2: error 22" message. I am not sure
exactly what to do with this.
