The init process is the "root" of the FreeBSD startup, and the last
part of the OS loader cannot find it, so the OS cannot start.


You can use a live system CD of FreeBSD (6, 7) or FreeSBIE to boot
the system with this CD, it should work. Then you can mount your
/ partition and check the existance of init which usually is
/sbin/init. Don't forget to fsck the hard disk, maybe due to the
failing power supply you had some damages on the hard disk (file-wise),
or even worse...
