Default NetBSD 5.1 Installation issues


I am trying to install NetBSD 5.1 and I'm having some issues:

Boot Option 1: Install

I get to install until the end with sysinst.
After installation I reboot and start to configure X.
When I do # X -configure, the screen is filled with random characters and hangs.

Boot Option 2: Install with no ACPI option.

2.1 The system gives the following boot messages:

cpu0: erratum 89 present
cpu0: WARNING: errata present, BIOS upgrade
cpu0: WARNING necessary to ensure reliable operation
panic: unknown MPS interrupt trigger
fatal breakpoint trapin supervisor mode
trap type 1 code 0 eip c057a54c cs 8 eflags 246 cr2 ilevel 8
Stopped in pid 0.1 (system) at netbsd:breakpoint +0x4: popl %ebp
2.2 The system prompts with

Boot Option 3 - Install with no ACPI, no SMP
The system boots from installation CD, presents the sysinst welcome screen and hangs.

The BIOS installed is version F.54, which is the latest available from support.

Is there a way to provide more detail, using dmesg or log files?

Thanks in advance.

P.S The machine being used is described at http://www.daemonforums.org/showthre...1882#post34048
