As my kernel messages were scrolling through I suddenly get this scrolling through endlessly:

Code:
vm_fault: pager read error, pid 1 (init)
If I look quick enough, it seems to happen at the very end of the boot-up.

For what its worth, I am doing this very odd remote dual-boot setup where I change the /efi/BOOT/ files to boot between FreeBSD and Ubuntu. Ubuntu boots just fine, but FreeBSD produces this error and does not move forward.

I am using 12.0-CURRENT.

I figured it out. After numerous reboots I noticed that it happened upon mounting the file-systems. Google said this was likely a hard-disk issue. I disabled zfs_enable from rc.conf, and it booted just fine. Manually importing the pool and mounting works just fine.

This might be an issue with 12.0-CURRENT.
