Can you also show your boot.cfg?
Does it have "rndseed /var/db/entropy-file; boot hd0e:netbsd" ?
If so, probably you have to remove "rndseed" command from it.

IIRC, the current x86 bootloader has a bug:
 - "rndseed" (and modules) always tries to open the partition a
 - once the partition a is opened the bootloader sets it as a root partition
   into bootinfo even if it isn't opened for loading a kernel
