Default Bus master DMA error occurs while executing newfs

An equivalent error occurs while trying to install FreeBSD to the same disk.
Do I need to check the disk integrity or can I pass a "DMA=off" or similar command?

In both instances, I am using a CD install.

I remember that the Gateway M275 being used is based upon the Toshiba Satellite design with a few modifications- certain Toshiba elements/controls will not work with it. Is it possible that using a passive FTP install would not cause such an error?
Yes, I am looking for solutions and asking here at the same time.

All that the Gateway document states are the PIO mode and support to ultradma 100. A thread on here lists what arguments one may be able to use on OpenBSD.
When I find a solution, could the posts be merged into a single one?

Posts are atomic. Posts can be moved from one thread to another, but posts themselves cannot be merged together. If your concern is that all information stays together, this can/should be done at the thread level. As long as all posts made (pertaining to a single subject...) are posted to the same thread, this should meet your goal of consolidation.
