Repairing boot

Hi gurus!
I'm new to freebsd (I come from linux/solaris/hp-ux). I've messed up
my startup after upgrading from 9.1 to 9.2 some time ago. Today I
tried to repair my foxconn amd64 small box via the command

# boot0cfg -B -s 2 /dev/ada0

But if I try to boot I get 

F2 ?

Boot: F1

and it doesn't do anything. If I bootstrap starting from an USB key,
escaping to boot prompt, issuing a set currdev=disk2p2 followed by
boot-conf does the trick.

what have I missed?

Thanks to all,
