Loader prints a 'Error: Stack underflow' after the copyright splash, and then bails out early with BIOS device 0xFFFFFFFF not found. It happened immediately after a freebsd-update -r 7.1-BETA, and is too early in the boot process to recover from without manual intervention. I'm going to get a 7.0-RELEASE loader back on the machine, and try building a firewire loader to trap the full output.
Most likely board related, I'll get a basic dmesg once I've been able to boot up something useful.
