FUBAR on an upgrade - need some help

I have an old Acer AspireOne netbook that's been running 10.1-RELEASE.
Yesterday I upgraded it using freebsd-update to 10.2 and then to 10.3,
and it went fine.
Then I upgraded it to 11.0-RELEASE, and it failed during boot, saying
it wanted to boot from ad4s1a, but couldn't find it.
I have managed to get it into single user, and have run "df-h" and
"gpart show", which don't agree at all. Output:
# df -h

I can't seem to use vi to modify fstab.
I'm a bit lost on how to recover from this. Can anyone give me a clue?
