Can't boot machine after upgrade

I just updated my server from 6.3-RELEASE to 6.4-RELEASE and I now
can't boot my machine - a rather crappy HP desktop.
The boot seems to go along nicely without any errors that I can see
but when it comes to mounting the root filesystem it bails out:
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad0s2
Manual root filesystem specification:
? List valid disk boot devices
I've tried entering the root fs (it's the same as above) but it's no
go. If I list the valid boot disk devices, it gives me this:
list of GEOM managed disk devices:
da3 da2 da1 da0
which are all the crappy flash card readers etc.
Anybody got any idea on what's going on & how to fix it?
BTW, just reply to the list, I can't receive mail ATM so I'll have to
read replies in the archive.
