as i'd mentioned before, the "newfs" command failed to work during

this doesn't help

yeah, figured, that's why i'd sent the following mail too, somehow it didn't make it through.

okay, i retried installation of 6.1.4 on the system after disabling 'uefi' boot option in the bios settings.

the installation stopped at the file system creation step, messages as below;

Status: Command failed
Command: /sbin/newfs -V2 -O 2 -b 32768 -f 4096 /dev/rwd0a
Hit enter to continue
newfs: /dev/rwd0a: open for read: Device busy

i had faced a similar problem on a previous (dying) machine, thought it to be because of the system's hdd.

now what i have is a brand new system, don't quite know how to proceed.

any help/pointers would be appreciated. :)



----- another email sent to the list ends -----

it says something along the lines of "disk busy, can't be used".

This helps a bit (the exact error message would be better).
Are your trying to install NetBSD current, or a release ?

i am trying to install netbsd 6.1.4 amd64 via a cd.
