I've never used the boot-only version.  So let me ask if you saw any issues 
with sysinstall?  Did you partition the disk and did newfs run without error?

Before you exit sysinstall you can check and see what is on the disks from 
the emergency shell on vtty4.  You can do a mount command and see what and 
where things are mounted and do an ls on those filesystems.
