Many thanks go to Lusty Wench <>.

The solution is to omit "filesys rootdisk.s2 all overlap" in jumpstart 
profile. filesys part should look like this:

filesys		rootdisk.s0 128 / logging,noatime
filesys		rootdisk.s1 512 swap
filesys		rootdisk.s3 1024 /usr logging,noatime
filesys		rootdisk.s4 1024 /var logging,noatime
filesys		rootdisk.s5 1024 /opt logging,noatime
filesys		rootdisk.s6 free /export/home logging,noatime

My question was:

After a jumpstart installation of Solaris 8_x86 7/01 and reboot I cannot 
boot the system. I do not even see Device Configuration Assistant. The 
screen is black and last line shows "Bad PBR sig". There was Solaris 
installed before on this computer and worked very well.

I tried erasing the disk (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/c0d0p0) but this has 
no affect.
