I think that problem is in NetBSD boot loader, because:
1) version 11A tk50-file1-11A start boot process from tape, but don't
The words "howto 0x03 dev 012 ....booting" appear on the terminal and
unknown error (error 20) ...
2) from disk (ra1) boot process with tk50-file1-11A finished successful.
So I have installed NetBSD on my system with boot 11A and kernel 12C on
first system disk (ra0).
3) I rewrite boot tapes with file1-12C version with NetBSD dd command,
result is the same.
4) VMS boot from this device standalone, so device is support boot
But I have the next big problem in my NetBSD/vax:
I CAN NOT USE THE SECOND DISK!
first access after boot to ra1:
ra1: no disk label: size 1312290 sectors
disklabel: /dev/rra1c: device not configured
I execute command:
MAKEDEV report that all files already exist
But disklabel don't want label or read disk ra1.
Disk is the same type as first, from which system boot: Fujitsu M2263SA
