Some models of HP 9000-300 series system support booting from CD-ROM but none support booting directly from an ISO. The ISO image produced by NetBSD should be wrapped in or prefixed with a LIF filesystem containing the SYS_INST and SYS_UBOOT programs so they can be bootable.
Download hp300 distribution ISO for NetBSD 8.0 or 8.1, attempt to boot it from a CD-ROM drive attached to an HP 9000-380 or HP 9000-425t and notice that it does not appear bootable.
For the moment to install on hp300 you essentially MUST netboot.
