i have a problem installing OpenBSD:

i want to install OpenBSD from cd-rom on one of two partitions on my hd. on the other partition is windows installed. in the installation setup i set the number to A6 for OpenBSD, but when i continue and the setup wants to format the BSD-partition there is always an error saying the device 'rd0a' (the hd) is not configured.

what do i have to do to continue the installation?

This is a tough one.

What drive is it? (brand, size, etc.)
Which version of OpenBSD are you trying to install?

I ask because there was a problem with a version (3.2 I think) of OBSD seeing seagate drives -- or a subset thereof.

Your primary parition still have windows, right? This is the secondary partition?

yes, this is the second partition. on the first one i have windows. but the version of openBSD is 3.8. i don't think there is a problem with the hd. the setup says the disk is not configured but i don't know what i have to do.

Are you sure it's a valid partition? Shows up in Administrator drive manager window as such? In other words, it's a virtual partition and not just some free hard drive space?

I don't really know what you mean. I think it is a valid partition. I've created it with the OpenBSD setup.
