Yes, on the other machine there is no /boot/GENERIC
So what do I do (I followed the steps you described).

# locate GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/alpha/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/alpha/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/ia64/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/ia64/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/pc98/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/pc98/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/powerpc/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/powerpc/conf/GENERIC.hints
/usr/src/sys/sparc64/conf/GENERIC
/usr/src/sys/sparc64/conf/GENERIC.hints


Thanks!
