That error indicates that the bootxx_xxxfs code isn't properly installed.
The code need to be at the start of the bios partition that contains NetBSD.
This is usually the root filesystem - but if you've used a non-standard
disk layout this may not be true.
Possibly just running 'installboot' to copy in the correct bootxx image
will fix things.
