Not enough information. I missed the exact way you created /altroot.
And, yes, the problem will become more serious (from my experience).
Dual booting OpenBSD and Windows, it's best to create _all_ partitions
in Windows and, afterwards, change partition types in OpenBSD, specially
if some of the OpenBSD partitions are positioned between win2k's primary
and extended partition.
Reason is that MS-Dos/ Windows reads (and sorts) partition table by
creation date while OpenBSD etc. sort partition table by position/
Might be, MS corrected this in win2k. However, I wouldn't bet on it.
