Re: install/54010: NetBSD didn't boot after installation

Thank so muchg Martin
I will try again and let you know. The laptop was running on OpenBSD
before. I am not sure if you get my reply to Michael but what I get is
NetBSD MBR boot
Error No Operating system.

I will try your suggestion and report back.


Best Regards,
Rami Shibli
