If ye are just using the on board ide, check to see if ye have it hooked up the same 
as it previously was.

If that does not work then just enter the / partion manually and proccded to edit 
fstab. Iirc, the default for / is s1a if freebsd is the only thing on that drive. Thus 
ye could just go thought trying that with various devices such as /dev/ad0, /dev/ad1 
and ect...

or try looking to see what drives up when it is booting...
