This is a known error but poses no problem afaik. Installation of the
system is completed by the time you get this message, so you can
safely ignore it and go on rebooting your computer.

If I got it right, what you perceive as "shell prompt" is single-user
mode. You should tweak at least /etc/rc.conf (rtfm) and then 'boot -fl
a' to get the machine up in multi-user mode.
