The first two complain no KeyBoarD nor mouse PoiNTeR is detected.

The last one is memory test failure.  Shuffle memory modules and see
the failure is repeated at the same slot or moving around with a
specific module.

If you can bake writable CDs, it'd be the most convenient way to install
NetBSD/pmax.   Simon Burge can provide detailed instructions :-)
