What part of the boot process fails?

Booting requires

- MBR to fetch PBR

- PBR interpreting GPT
- PBR detecting RAID(?) volume and raidframe label.
- PBR interpreting GPT inside the RAID volume
- PBR reading /boot

- /boot repeating about the same to read /netbsd

- /netbsd repeating about the same to mount /

Step 2 and 3 of PBR (same code as in /boot) probably
need to be implemented.
