   Yes, I had this pb too the first time I tried to install NetBSD. I had
   macOS partitions before unix ones and it crashed several times. The
   pb disappeared when I moved macOS partitions to the end. All seems to
   run okay now.

Strange... I do have a MacOS partition on each of my two drives, and
never had a problem with that (I make the MacOS partitions certain
sizes so that each BSD partition is nicely aligned at the cylinder

Just let me know if anyone's interested to see my partition
assignments; I could send you disklabel output.
