OpenBSD 4.7. Install to USB-flash


Hi all

I'm not very new to OpenBSD, but this is my 1st installation to the USB-flash.

As I understood from the FAQ, we have to do the installation for 2 times. The 3rd marker in the list in this FAQ says:
Quote:
Prepare the device on another computer as described in FAQ 14. Boot from it, but chose the bsd.rd kernel, then install as normal
And in that FAQ 14 there's also an install-to-the-USB-process described.

So, I've done everything accroding to the FAQ, but all in vain. (1. prepared the USB. 2.Booted from it using bsd.rd and commited a normal installation)
When the system starts booting from the USB (after the '2nd installation'), then it reboots.

I cannot understand why it's so and what I'm doing wrong

Regards,
Lexus45

Does this only happen when you boot OpenBSD from the usb key? Do you have a dmesg (might need to set up a serial console to capture it)? I'm assuming you're running 4.7-RELEASE, but just for clarity's sake this isn't STABLE or CURRENT, is it?

Well guys, I started a new thread at daemonforums.org, because that source is more "BSD'ish".

And as I consider to think now, this Intel D201GLY2A mini-ITX motherboard can work well neither with OpenBSD, nor with NetBSD
The details of these 'adventures' are available by link above.
