I did this on a Dedibox SC SSD 2016. First +of all you need to install one of the provided OSes in order to access the +rescue mode and serial console KVM on the server status page. Next, boot into +(Ubuntu) rescue mode, login, and write the OpenBSD install media on disk: + + $ curl -O 'http://ftp.fr.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.8/amd64/miniroot58.fs' + $ sudo dd if=miniroot58.fs of=/dev/sda + +Now reboot back into normal mode and access the serial console from your +browser. If you were not fast enough to see the bootloader prompt, just force +a reboot from the interface. Note that at the time of writing there is a +glitch on the serial console interface and I see the key `n` being pressed +every few seconds. Once you get ahold of the bootloader: + + boot> set tty com1 + boot> boot + +When you reach the installer prompt, escape to shell. We need to erase the MBR +because the miniroot image contains a wrong disklabel for our disk. Then exit +the shell and go for the install option. + + (I)nstall, (U)pgrade, (A)utoinstall or (S)hell? s + # dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rsd0c bs=1m count=1 + ^D + (I)nstall, (U)pgrade, (A)utoinstall or (S)hell? i + +Now use the installer as usual. I got the correct address through DHCP. The +installer will ask you if you want to use `com1` as the default console. Say +yes, with the default baud rate, so that you continue to see output in the +KVM-over-IP console. If you miss that... + +`/etc/boot.conf`: + + set tty com1 + +Cheers! + +lostd@
