Hmmm... the "2" in "2kernel" looks strange, as the default path
to the kernel is /boot/kernel/kernel. The boot process tries to
access /boot/2kernel/kernel and cannot find it. You could try
to manually enter the correct path at the boot: prompt (like
the default: setting, but with the "2" removed). In worst case,
re-install the GPT boot block to reflect the correct setting.
