Short of using the command: "CHDMAN -verify -i cap-33s-2.chd" to verify the consistency of your CHD and assuring your NVRAM folder for "sfiii3" is completely cleaned out before attempting another rewrite attempt, I'm not sure what else could be wrong. Both current Git sources as well as official MAME 0.187 both install correctly as you start the machine and create proper NVRAM files so when you start again the game starts directly.
You can use the F10 key to unthrottle the emulation and shorten the building time. Some people also set skip 10/10 (tap F8 twice after booting) to give it the most speed while this process happens.
