Default Can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty'

Hello everyone, I'm trying to install NetBSD 6.0.1 from a USB stick on my Emachines netbook. When the system starts booting I get the following message which repeats every minute without going further:

Can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port '/dev/console': No such file or directory

Google search has showed that I'm far from being the first one who has experienced this, but I still can't find out from there what is the solution.
