the boot procedure up to the install program.
So I concluded I'm with a defective hardware and removing the HDD and

errors wrongly somehow, like not timing out when expected?
Hm, I doubt it is something wrong with your hardware.
If you do not get an error when the firmware starts up then it should be OK.
I still leaning on the wrong-directed-console. It should always print
out something from the kernel, even if there were problem with disks or
NetBSD has support for the LCSPX (graphics), which it may try to use as
