Today I found that my old backup machine with nForce2 is unbootable with
FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE i386 (even from CD!)
Booting hangs on line with "ad2" (HDD detection)
FreeBSD 6.2 (previuously installed on HDD ad2 and upgraded by
freebsd-update) worked fine.
Now I am in dead point, because I can't rollback - booting with
kernel.old (6.2 kernel) ends with error message. (I have not the exact
message, but it is about mounting root fs rw. Root fs is mounted read
only and if I tried to mount another fs I got "ufs doesn't support the
new mount syscall", so I think I have 7.0 world booted with 6.2 kernel
and that's the problem.

Can anybody tell me, how can I rollback binary upgrade if system is in
this state? (can't boot with 7.0, can't mount with 6.2 kernel)
(freebsd-update was not finished, because machine is unbootable after
first reboot in upgrade process)
