Only error I can think of at this point: somehow the cylinder size was
different between backup and restore, and the ROM doesn't correctly find
the NetBSD bootblock when booting.

Well, the error looks _very_ fishy, because normally it does only occur
during early startup...

Hm. One thing that comes into my mind: the ROM might try to prepare to
AmigaOS-mount the NetBSD filesystems (as you have given the mount flag),
but you don't have any FSHD (and, consequently, visible LSEG) in your RDB.
Please install bffs-1.5 into your RDB for both NBR\7 and NBU\7.
