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:

Code:
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
boot>
booting hd2a:/bsd: open hd2a:/bsd: Invalid arguement
failed(22). will try /bsd
boot>
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?

Well clearly the bootloader is detecting 3 disks, perhaps installing the new one rearranged the ordering.

The error is an indication that the partition, if it even exists, does not have an FFS file system.

At this point I can't diagnose the situation... please consider posting the following information in [code][/code] blocks.

$ dmesg
# fdisk wd0; disklabel wd0
# fdisk wd1; disklabel wd1
# fdisk wd2; disklabel wd2

This of coarse assumes your drives will attach as wd(4)...

From the bootloader, you can't issue shell commands, but ... you can find out what's on the three hard drives it sees.

boot> ls hd0a:/
boot> ls hd1a:/
boot> ls hd2a:/

Then, once you've figured out which disk to boot from, issue:

boot> boot hd_a:/bsd

The bootloader will only try to boot from drive #0 unless told otherwise.

but the system put to wd2 without any error messages at the stage of creating sections.

Code:
$ dmesg

Recently, I installed OpenBSD 4.4 on the two discs independently (wd1, wd2). I would like the system works (boot) with wd2.

I don't deal with multiboot environments myself, kinda OpenBSD exclusive, but perhaps you need to flag partition #1 as active on wd2.

I decided problem. I need install OpenBSD in FIRST partition on wd2. Now OpenBSD booting without without any problems.

OpenBSD, perhaps, doesn't boot with subsequent partitons, as is the case with my WD7500AAKS (size of first partition is 15Gb).
