Thanks for your reply, sorry should have tried to think more of what to say. Yes it was post install, I already had PC-BSD 9.0 installed which was running well, did the update per Dru's instructions in the Blog. Received the PC-BSD must reboot to finish message, rebooted and what you see above is the error message saying a kernel was not found.
Original 9.0 install was a very basic install, only used UFS for the entire disk originally for 9.0 and did not encrypt, nor did I do any special/extra partitioning, KDE and Gnome. I did do the New Features for the Impatient instructions recently posted in the Blog, but I did not follow the instructions to get the sound icon working that Dru was kind enough to post, because I read the 'Danger Danger Will Robinson' message:
## sudoers file.
## This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
## Failure to use 'visudo' may result in syntax or file permission errors
## that prevent sudo from running.
in the file and am not certain if I needed to use visudo or if I could just save the changes to that file as root? (still a newbie here, lots of laughs.)
Have my second pc which is a Dell 5700 and had also tried installing the Beta, but have not restarted/rebooted it yet, as I figure if I have a kernel problem on it also, I might lose the most recent data on it, so backing it up now = Yep was a bit "impatient" and excited.
