I've bumped into this exact problem trying to install any version of
OpenBSD later than 2.8 (i.e. 2.9 and 3.0 both have the problem) on a
generic system I have with an Adaptec 2940 and a Quantum 3.2GB
disk. OpenBSD 2.8 and earlier install and run perfectly on this setup. If
I swap the Quantum for an IBM 9.1GB drive, both 2.9 and 3.0 install perfectly.
No one has been able to offer me any solutions for correcting this, nor
exactly what the issue is beyond "some sort of weird firmware interaction"
between that generation of firmware Quantum and the Adaptec. I'm pretty
sure something changed in the AHA driver between 2.8 and 2.9, but no one
has verified that.
I'd be interested to hear if you too are attempting to install on a Quantum
hard drive. I'd also be curious to know if OpenBSD 2.7 or 2.8 installs
fine on your machine.
Since I didn't want to waste a 9.1GB drive on a firewall box, I put a
couple of old IDE drives I had lying around in my machine and it installs
and works fine. I'd still rather be using SCSI... ;)
Good luck and if you manage to get this problem corrected, please let me know!
