    Hello,

    I just ran freebsd-update and now I can't load any kernel.

    I'm getting:

    Code:
    elf32_loadimage: read failed
    unable to load a kernel!
    


    Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    I think your kernel or part of it(some file(s)) is(are) corrupted, so I suggest you to boot your system as single user, then try to roll back to the last changes like so:
    Code:
    freebsd-update rollback

    If you fail to do this, try to rebuild the kernel.

    Did you tried to boot as single user?
