Upgraded my old box with 13.0 to 13.0 P1, and have got this error on booting:

It gets as far as detecting all the usb devices and then.

Loader variables:
vfs.root.mountfrom=zfs:zfastroot/ROOT/default

Code:
Manual root filesystem specification:
    <fstype>:<device> [options]
        Mount <device> using filesystem <fstype>
        and with the specified optional (option) list

and then it gives an example.

If I type ? it gives: gpt/zfs0 msdosfs/EFISYS

But I cannot get it to get past here.
I have tried with booting from /boot/kernel.old/kernel, but it is the same.

What is wrong, and how can I get it back to booting all the way? Thank you.

Seemed to have got it back by starting with an empty fstab.

Thank you.

I found the culprit. One of the data disks is failing and an NFS mount was unavailable.

Also removed boot_mute="YES" from loader.conf, 'cos you can't really see what is going on.
