Well I got the server up and running on the old kernel. I redid the buildworld and buildkernel. I've held off for now on doing installworld and installkernel until I get a better understanding of what caused me to go into mountroot. I use the "Escape to loader prompt" prompt to load the old kernel.
Does anyone know what causes one to load into a mountroot prompt? > -----Original Message----- > From: Brian A.
