This likely means the kernel has not found the device you are booting
from. You can get a list of available disk and network devices by typing


at the root device: prompt. Show the list here and tell us what device
you booted from (most likely: wd0, the first sata disk, so boot device should
be wd0a).

Sometimes it may help to power off the machine (that is no problem at this
point), wait a minute and retry "cold". If this would make it work, it is
still a bug (and you should file a PR).
