Default Booting Failed (OpenBSD 4.3, 4.4)

Good day, dear members forum.

From the old disk Samsung had no problems. OpenBSD install and run without problems.
I bought a new hard drive WD7500AAKS. I installed OpenBSD on wd2 (hd2, 1). Not loaded. Gives the following error:

probing: pc0 apm mem[638K 1022M a20=on]
disk: fd0 hd0+* hd1+* hd2*
>> OpenBSD/I386 BOOT 3.02
open(hd2a:/etc/boot.conf): Invalid arguement
booting hd2a:/bsd: open hd2a:/bsd: Invalid arguement
failed(22). will try /bsd
booting hd2a:/bsd: open hd2a:/bsd: Invalid arguement
failed(22). will try /bsd
Turning timeout off.
Same situation with OpenBSD 4.3 and 4.4. And when I install on another drive (Samsung), all starts.

On the drive, all in order. Record and read data from the NTFS partition. I easily installed Windows on WD7500AAKS.

What can I do?
