   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.
