I would try the following:

1. get 7.x source tree.
2. make buildworld && make buildkernel
3. mv /boot/kernel /boot/kernel6
4. make installkernel
5. reboot, boot with "-s"
6. mount your filesystems, do some io testing.

If everything looks well, you can then make installworld and hopefully
things proceed safely.
