A while ago, I posted a very similar message, but to my knowledge received
no definative answer.  Eventually, I gave up, but am now forced to revisit
the issue. 

I've tried the new snap (both of them), and found no change.  I've also
moved the whole OS to wd0, and am experiencing the same problem.

For the record, when booting, I now see 

Error: D:0x8e C:0 H:0 S:0

scrolling up the screen.  If, instead, I stop it at the kernel parameter
prompt and enter 


Things boot perfectly.  Is anyone working on this, or have any ideas?
This machine ran FreeBSD for a long time without problem.  It's only now
that I've got a new drive that there are problems.
