I have been fighting for the CD-ROM problem for quite some time now.
The good news is that my installation problem is caused by a broken
the bad news is that I can no longer replicate the problem without
that drive (definitely dead now).
The broken optical drive is the superdrive that came with Mac mini G4,
and I don't have
any spare drive that can fit the 50-pins PATA interface. I did try to
workaround this issue:
(1). Using a USB external optical drive, successfully boot into
installer from CD-ROM, but
failed to mount that CD-ROM in installer or shell. The uhidv is
not configured for the drive.
(2). Copy the iso image into /tmp directory, but fail to mount the iso.
Any suggestion? Is it possible to simulate the installation process in
a working NetBSD environment?
