I tried to install NetBSD 4_BETA/amd64 on my laptop. It boots, but the keyboard doesn't work (so I can't even use sysinstall). This is not a hardware problem, the keyboard works in the boot loader.

When booting, the kernel says:

pckbc0 at isa0 port 0x60-0x64
kbc: cmd word write error

NetBSD 3.0.1/i386 fails the same way.

Boot NetBSD.
