I remember I had been using another disk image for the Pinebook Pro which did contain plenty of other files on the DOS partition, including a netbsd.img. But happy to learn this can be simplified, not using /netbsd on ffs and in parallel netbsd.img on dos. 

Now, my issue is that the plain vanilla builds from nyftp only yield an empty screen on my Pinebook Pro (looking at the LEDs flickering I *believe* the system actually boots, though). Any idea how to proceed? Booting from an external Micro SD Card, BTW.
