Apologies for sending only to Robert.  I didn't reply-all.

I guess I wasn't exactly clear in my steps.

1) uefi on sd card, NetBSD Generic 64-bit image (https://nycdn.netbsd.org/pub/
arm/HEAD/202211221110Z/NetBSD-HEAD-aarch64-202211221110Z-generic.img.gz) on 

I get "sdmmc0: write protected"

Here's a video of what this looks like:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SS8qXK4cjw

2) NetBSD General 64-bit on sd-card and uefi on eMMC.

UEFI runs and NetBSD boots and I get to a log in prompt but the keyboard does 
not work.  I have yet to try a serial console next with setup

3) UEFI on sd-card, eMMC has been formatted and is blank, NetBSD installer ISO 
on a USB-drive

The system boots and I get to the NetBSD installation menu.  When attempting 
to partition the eMMC, I receive the same "sdmmc0: write-protected"
