 Have you tried a recent NetBSD current?   I had a similar problem
 with a new ASUS laptop (G55V) and it turned out top be that it needed
 more kmem descriptors than NetBSD was allowing, and so it was
 panic'ing very early in the boot process (way before it even got to
 print the copyright - ocasionally I'd see the message flash by, but
 most times the processor reset and started the reboot too quickly to
 see anything).
 The magic number was increased, and that allowed NetBSD to boot for me
 (still other issues with missing drivers and perhaps UEFI bios are
 still preventing me using it native, but at least the problem that looked
 serious turned out to be trivial.)
