Not possible as machine will not boot far enough to grant access to a prompt.
After a power outage at work, I cleanly shut down the server while it was still running on a UPS - this morning, I tried to boot up the machine I get the "GEOM_MIRROR: Force device gm0 start due to timeout." message, at which point the system just stops booting. The system is not unresponsive, it just does not boot any further.
The problem repeats itself on boot.
