    Hello,

    The error you are seeing is caused by the boot loader looking in
    the wrong place for the kernel. Try this command at the boot
    prompt:

    boot: 0:ad(0,a)/boot/kernel/kernel

    My guess is the error you see will change to "Invalid Format".

    I saw your post the other day and cut the power to a 5.3 test
    box to see if the same thing would happen. It did. I think
    something happened to your and my systems that prevents the boot
    loader from recognizing UFS2. Here are the things I have tried
    so far.
    I booted into FreeSBIE (www.freesbie.org) and ran fsck to fix
    the filesystems. The / filesytem reported clean, but /home and
    /var had amazing numbers of unrecoverable errors and bad blocks.
    But I still got the "Invalid Format" error. So I put the drive
    in another 5.3 system and everything in / _seems_ readable.
    Right now I am running a surface diagnostic on the drive to see
    if the platters are damaged. That will not be finished until
    sometime tomorrow, but so far over half the disk has been
    checked and reports as undamaged. I will report the results of
    the completed test.
    I will run the "power outage test" several times to see if the
    same problems appear each time. Those results will be posted
    when finished.

    Regards,

    stheg
