Hmm, I thought 4.6 release was in late October. Well, anyway, I've re-downloaded the latest snapshot from FTP (/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/i386/install46.iso, file date Jan 15th) and retried everything again. Same sad story...

This time with I noticed that the "(I)nstall (U)pgrade (S)hell" prompt (black bg) does appear when I use "disable pckbc", but the keyboard isn't working and I have no way to communicate with it before the screen gets flooded with the aforementioned "uhub[#]: [...]" error lines (blue bg). I think this prompt also appeared with the 4.6 release CD as well, it just scrolled off-screen before I could recognize what it was.

I also tried disabling pckbd in addition to pckbc - this resulted in output ending with: "dumping to dev 1101, offset 0", "dump error 19", and "rebooting ..." (which it never did, until I used the power button a few minutes later) prior to it ever getting to the black-bg I/U/S prompt.

Yeah, it looks like "disable apm" doesn't affect my issue at all. My bad if it was wrong of me to append to this thread instead of starting a new one.

I'm really hoping someone will suggest something else I can try to resolve this...
