I really did select number 4 after the reboot, i even rebooted multiple 
I can imagine myself missing number 4 reading the options and not 
hitting number 4 within the 10 seconds the first time, but not the 
second and third time.
Or my keyboard did not work at the boot loader menu, wich i can not test 
now because it is recompiling all my ports and i do not want to interupt 
a working deamon ..
But anyhow it gave me the above error!
I did not think about going into the loader and unload the iscsi module, 
so i did remove it with the live cd using fixit from the laoder.conf file.
Now all is fine.
