Thanks for your help.
My system seems to stop right after the text
"Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf". The /var disk is physically injured (strange quirks, the normal sound of a broken HD). I have disconnected it and have also disconnected the RocketRAID454 card with all it's harddisks. Remaining harddisk is the system disk which I think works as desired.
What is the first thing the loade is doing?
