Unhappy NetBSD installation problem

Hi all forum members!
I am trying to get NetBSD 4.0 to install on my Lenovo Y400 laptop however the booting of the installation fails with the following error:
pcic0: controller 0 detecting irqs with mask 0xde18.. 3kernel: supervisor trap protection fault, code=0
Stopped in pid 0.1 (swapper) at netbsd: lapic_delay +0x76: movl %esi, %eax
Does anyone have any idea how this could be resolved? Also I wanted to save the dmesg output for posting but am not sure what command to use.

Any help for the above 2 problems would be kindly appreciated.

Cheers!

P.S.
I tried the OpenBSD 4.3 installation and it ran smoothly. Could it be a problem with my installation discs for NetBSD 4.0?

I see numerous unsubstantiated references to PCMCIA issues. You may be able to ferret out more information by combing through the port-i386@ mailing list. Below is a list of potentially matching the error provided:

To save console output during booting, you will need to set up a serial connection to another computer & capture whatever output is sent over the serial link. You will find further information at the following:

http://www.netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/...d-media-serial
http://man.chinaunix.net/bsd/www.net...p2p-via-serial
http://www.netbsd.org/docs/Hardware/Misc/serial.html

Commands which can be used on the remote box include tip(1) or cu(1).

Hi all!
The issue was resolved by disabling the reported device pcic0 through boot -c which enters into userconf mode, allowing the enabling and disabling of devices.

The following links may be useful to whoever might encounter similar problems in future:

Thanks and Cheers!
