Default no bootable device after installtion

After installing NetBSD 8 I have a couple problems.
1. If the USB drive with the installation image is not inserted the system will not boot.
2. Running X -configure causes a reboot.

1. Without the installation USB:
Code:
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.
No bootable -- insert boot disk and press any key
The first time I thought I made a mistake and did something to the BIOS, but the partitions looks fine, just like it should in The Guide:
Code:
a:  0     472983     472984     FFSv2
b:  472984     476939     3985     swap
c:  0     476939     476939    NetBSD partition
d:  0     476939     476940     whole disc
e:  0     0     0     unused
I am at a bit of a loss, since as far as I know it should not be possible to set an installation medium as the boot source of an OS.

2. I do not know if this is unsupported hardware or related to #1.
Code:
DRM error in radeon_get_bios:
Unable to locate a BIOS ROM
radeon0: error: Fatal error during GPU init
I am trawlling through documrntation, but with a telephone. So I also cannot post a dmesg, although I can look through other threads where it is posted and copy it. (A little later in the day.)

This may be more useful information than what I posted above.
Code:
a:     0     0     0     unused
b:     0     0     0     unused
c:     0     476939   476939   NetBSD partition
d:     0     476939   476940   Whole disk
e:     0     476939   476939   FFSv1  Yes  Yes  /
f:     0     0     0     unused
