Are you upgrading from swinst? If so, did you install the patch that is required for upgrades beyond 6.5.22?

I'd recommend either trying DINA or making bootable CDs for 6.5.29 (as described somewhere in this forum, search for boot, efs, cd).

Yep, that patch is the 5086 one mentioned above. The update workes nicely now, it was simply an ACARD SCSI-SATA bridge that didn't like the upgrades... Or IRIX didn't like the bridge - either way it all worked out nicely with a real SCSI disk.
