Default Fresh installation 6.1.2 amd64 freezes in the line "root device"

Hi, I'm trying to install NetBSD.amd64 6.1.2 from ISO in a desktop Dell Dimension E521 AMD64x2 Athlon 5000+ with 250GB HDD. The installer shows "boot device: <unknown>" and below "root device:" (no more data in this line). I do not know if I should write anything there but the keyboard does not seem to work. I tried the installer on a laptop Intel Centrino Duo and boot without problems.
I've tried some things recommended in #netbsd at Freenode as "dev / dev hdXa..." or "boot -c then disable ehci / ohci" without success. No RAID system.

Any idea?
