Yes that's how I boot a miniroot for maintenance on my desktop.  On my
laptop, however, I may boot such a maintenance
system  from a USB-stick.  I simply reformatted the stick with sysid
169 (with fdisk sd0) and let the install program divide
it in swap and root as well as making newfs on sd0a.

Wish you luck!
