Default [netbook Samsung n102] Cannot install base system

CPU: Intel Atom N435
Flashed a pendrive with i386.img - is this the right installation media?
I'm aware of iwn0 firmware not found, though I do not need it, I use Ethernet only.

Code:
ftp: Reading from file: Input/output error
gzip: stdin: Input/output error
tar: End of archive volume 1 reached
Installation of base71.tgz failed.
Errors from dmesg:
Code:
ahci0: read NCQ error, page, but not an NCQ error?
ahci0: couldn't recover NCQ error, failing all outstanding commands.
You can view the full boot process here.

Was it a good download(?); check it's md5/sha code.

(My 7.1 installs have been OK.)

bsd-keith,
how may I do so?
I compared SHA256 and SHA256.sig in tmp/, they look identical.
Sorry for being a noob, I look forward to learn more!

It looks like you might have a failing USB stick.

Per Intel, the N435 CPU is 64-bit capable, so therefore you should be installing OpenBSD/amd64. OpenBSD/i386 should only be used with CPUs that are restricted to 32-bit.

For installation from USB, I recommend you use the amd64 install71.img to have all kernels and filesets available on the installation disk. Booting from a USB stick created with miniroot71.img requires installing kernels and filesets from the network.

Jiggimi,
I'm getting stalled on the Get/Verify base71.tgz
I tried different mirrors, yet it's still occurs.
Also it outputs: re0 watchdog timeout

You're having some sort of network hardware issue: a watchdog timeout for the re(4) network interface means that the network interface connector has not responded to an I/O command from the driver.

I'll repeat my recommendation: use the amd64 install71.img to have all kernels and filesets available on the installation disk. No network connection will be required.

Nevermind me getting stalled, I just had to wait a little longer.
I still get: "Installation of bsd.rd failed." Errors

Jiggimi,
I do use install71, I guess I hadn't chose the option to install them from disk.

Even with filesets on the disk I still have a problem. It's simply won't comply to install the filesets, taking quite a long time, resulting in an error of it not being installed. Here's the image.

You are seeing SATA bus failures. Combined with your previously reported NIC hardware issues, I suspect your hardware is not stable enough to install the OS.
