Then it is probably driver issue, update OpenBSD to latest stable and try again ...

For me 4.1 for example had panic when ifconfig -M on rum0 interface.

Upgrading from -release to -stable isn't going to provide driver changes since the -stable branch is merely meant to provide a simpler path to install patches & security fixes. See Section 5.1 of the FAQ for more information:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Flavors

Likewise, there have been no changes to /src/sys/dev/pci/if_iwi.c since last November:

http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvswe...v/pci/if_iwi.c

So, upgrading from 4.3-release to either 4.3-stable or 4.3-current in this case will not change the behaviour seen in 4.3-release.

I recommending switch from 4.2 to 4.3 STABLE (or even current) anyway because problem may be in 802.11 code instead, if it is fixed at all.

Well, there are also no visible changes in if_rum* driver files for panic I had experience with, more likely it can be usb code problem or fix was never documented.

OpenBSD 43 didn't install. I can't see the problems (i think, it from bios).

Try to boot in single-user mode:

At the "boot>" prompt, type "-s" and press Enter.

Oh, I think we have same problem with 4.3 RELEASE.

On my laptop it reboted because of ACPI issue, so if you disable ACPI (it is explained in documentation) it should be fine.

iwi0:could not load boot firmware
iwi0:timeout waiting for master
iwi0:iwi0 at pci2 dev 4 function 0 "Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG" rev 0x05: irq 11, address 00:0e:35:ed:98:b8
iwi0:could not load boot firmware
iwi0:timeout waiting for master

You are missing iwi firmware from /etc/firmware. Re-install it, per iwi(4).

I will give you the same advice I gave leanardz here. If you are sure you have the appropriate files in /etc/firmware, you can report your trouble to the OpenBSD project. Follow ocicat's link in that thread for advice on how to report a problem.

Warning: obsolete construct: "@ignore"

As I described to leonardz in this post, you can unpack the tarball and move the files in ./etc/firmware to /etc/firmware.
