Can you please boot into sysinst, then use the Utilities menu to start
a shell and show us the output of
I suppose the Tru64 installation left something on the disk that we
misinterpret - and sysinst needs to validate and clean that.
If you want a quick workaround: after copying the disklabel output for this
ticket, do something like this to clear the start of your hard disk:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rsd0c count=200
and reboot. I guess sysinst will work then (but this may fail due to label
sector write protection).
