It has taken a whereas, but I'm satisfied to relate that OpenBSD/arm64
works properly ample on Apple M1 programs for some wider testing.  A well-known
milestone modified into reached with the originate of the Asahi Linux installer:

  https://asahilinux.org/2022/03/asahi-linux-alpha-originate/

This presents an effortless approach to add UEFI "firmware" to your Apple M1
machine which is required to boot OpenBSD/arm64.  The major steps are:

Change macOS to the most standard originate (12.3).

Originate some free condominium on the interior NVMe storage.  You might presumably presumably both
  form this with the macOS diskutil inform line machine, or by the usage of the
  Asahi Linux installer (explore under).

Inaugurate a terminal window and speed the installer:

  $ curl https://alx.sh | sh

  Discover the steps introduced to you.  Put off "UEFI ambiance most keen
  (m1n1 + U-Boot + ESP)" when prompted to settle an OS to set up.
  After you complete the final steps, you would possibly presumably peaceable discontinuance up on the U-Boot
  urged.

Write the arm64 snapshot miniroot71.img to a USB storage machine and
  join it to one amongst the USB Kind-C ports (the Kind-A ports on the
  Mac mini isn't any longer going to work).

Reboot the machine by typing "reset" on the U-Boot urged.

The machine would possibly presumably peaceable now boot into the OpenBSD installer.  From this
level onwards the life like OpenBSD set up instructions practice.
This can handle your unique macOS set up even whenever you occur to steal out the
"(W)gap disk" possibility in the installer.

All at indicate readily accessible Apple M1 machines would possibly presumably peaceable work (rather than for the
objective objective lately introduced Mac Studio).  Hardware reinforce isn't any longer in actuality complete, but
is on par with Asahi Linux.  Your whole fundamentals (keyboard, touchpad, 1Gb
Ethernet, WiFi, USB, NVMe storage, X on the framebuffer console) work.
And WiFi works even in the OpenBSD installer!  There isn't this kind of thing as a
droop/resume or hibernate reinforce yet and the dearth of GPU
acceleration capability that video playback presumably isn't any longer in actuality a worthwhile
journey.

At this level most keen snapshots will work.  Nonetheless the 7.1 originate is spherical
the corner!  Pattern continues at a gorgeous rapid bound so a
sysupgrade each now after which would possibly presumably no longer effort.  And updates to the UEFI
ambiance can be major at obvious facets as properly.

Cheers,
