This sounds a little like something that happened to me when I built
a 7.1 GENERIC kernel. When I did an installworld, I got this:

It turned out to be a broken boot/loader; the CD had a version that
was built before an untested change went into the source.
I tried a bootonly CD image, but it came back with "Missing operating
system". Fortunately I was able to boot from a backup root partition,
copy loader.old to loader, and reboot normally.
