Default OpenBSD boot fails

I am trying to install OpenBSD on a embedded computer (Soekris 4801). I successfully did a PXE installation and got the congratulations OpenBSD install message. However, when I do a reboot, I see the following message:
1 Seconds to automatic boot.   Press Ctrl-P for entering Monitor.
Using drive 0, partition 0.
probing: pc0 com0 pci mem[639K 127M a20=on]
disk: hd0+
>> OpenBSD/i386 BOOT 3.21
switching console to com0
                         >> OpenBSD/i386 BOOT 3.21
booting hd0a:/bsd: read header
 failed(0). will try /bsd
booting hd0a:/bsd: read header
 failed(0). will try /bsd
Turning timeout off.
I have OpenBSD installed in hd0 and when I do

"ls hd0a:\"

I can see the bsd files. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
