That's what I ended up doing, but it's just not sportish.

I don't think I had to use an alternate boot on a FreeBSD system in 10
years to solve a problem that wasn't manageable on single-user mode or
the bootloader prompt.

Linux on the other hand, mounting all filesystems read-write and
starting all RAIDs (which is a write operation in Linux), I should
probably add a CD drive to leave the OS CD in permanently :-)
