Hello, and welcome!

I recommend avoid trying to multiboot, to eliminate that as any sort of problem source or complication. Install to a separate drive -- you can even install onto a USB memory stick, and boot that instead of your workstation's default drive. OpenBSD 6.2 (and the latest release, 6.3) support EFI booting and GPT partitioning, as well as MBR booting. But GPT multibooting is not supported.

From your description, it appears that on at least one occasion, you've been able to successfully get the bootloader to boot, but not get the bootloader to successfully load a GENERIC kernel. You have successfully booted and loaded a RAMDISK kernel from installation media, but these kernels are not identical.

Edited to add: Here's a link to shep's comments regarding multiboot with GPT.
