Default OpenBSD Continuous Reboot - failure to boot normally

After attempting to run a live usb of another OS, my boot process has been thoroughly messed up. When my computer attempts to boot normally, it gets stuck on a continuous reboot cycle. The only way I can boot normally is to boot from /bsd.sp. Otherwise I receive a quick error that says something about not being able to find my hard drive before it reboots.

I've attached my dmesg output and fstab file. I would appreciate any help you can provide or resources you could point me to. Thanks!

This is gonna sound silly, but have you tried simply replacing /bsd with a known working copy?

I have not thought of that. How would I obtain a correct one without completely reinstalling?

You're using OpenBSD 6.3-release, yes? This should do the trick:
Boot into /bsd.sp, then
Code:
$ cd /
$ doas mv bsd obsd
$ doas ftp https://ftp4.usa.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/6.3/amd64/bsd.mp
$ doas mv bsd.mp bsd
Then reboot.
