Unhappy what to do at mountroot prompt?

Hi everyone,

Just coming from bsdforums... sad...
But life is going on and I hope I'll find some help here.
So this is my problem.

After wrong diagnose, my FreeBSD 7 box has been brutally rebooted. Since, it is not booting anymore and instead, prompting this ( horrible ) mountroot.

I tried to find what to do there and all I found was to indicate the / slice. What i did, like this:


but it just replied something like 'No such file or directory' several times until the box has been stopped.

From another FreeBSD system (multiboot on the box) I applied "fsck -y" on all slices of the first system to get them all clean. Then I tried again. the result was sadly the same.

So... the question is simple... what to do?
