Re: port-amd64/53113: NetBSD_8.0_BETA/amd64 fails to boot.

Zeroing doesn’t help. I’ve tried it on all the machines that I have. I have also checked that the device is not write-protected using ‘hdparm’ utility on a linux machine. Also, while trying to format it on my MacBook and linux machines, I get the error message that they were unable to write to the last block of the device.
I dd’d it just the same way as I always do with any *nix OS. only using ‘if’ and ‘of’ like:
dd if=NetBSD.img of=/dev/sdc
After making sure that none of it’s partitions are mounted.
With fdisk on linux, I get I/O error.

PS: I forgot to mention that I get a ‘cnopen: no console device’ error too, on my desktop.

 There is one primary issue, and that is that somehow your umass device
 got corrupted. Nothing else is really conclusive untill you get that

 I'd suggest to move it to your desktop, and zero the start of it, like:

   dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rsd0d count=100

 How did you write the image content there?
