Re: install/55478: netbsd 9.0 - Installer freezes on macbook pro late 2013
I would recommend trying UEFI image, since I had better results
booting from it on Mac Mini 2014 system, in case you haven't tried
yet. I had a black screen issue as well in previous releases, though
using UEFI image, not a BIOS boot. Don't remember anymore if it was
fixed in NetBSD 9 release or current branch.
