In addition to what Jerry mentioned, make sure that the
/etc/fstab file is set up properly for the new machine;
alternatively, make sure the drive is in the same logical
location in the new machine (e.g., da0 on one should be
da0 on the other).

Otherwise, you end up in single user, or not booting
at all.
