Just one guess: I have experienced a similiar issue when installing
NetBSD to a pretty modern Intel NUC device. In my case the root cause
was that the device exclusively has a XHCI (USB 3.0) controller, but no
UHCI / EHCI. As NetBSD 7.x only offers support for UHCI / EHCI, the USB
3.0 controller was not recognized at all and rendering the kernel unable
to find a device where to look for the root filesystem. The reason why
the kernel is still loaded from the USB 3.0 is that the bootloader is
probably using some BIOS / CSM compatibility stuff.
Could you try NetBSD 8.0 Beta on the same device? The amd64 build has
XHCI enabled by default and this worked for my case.
