Description

I am affected by I believe https://illumos.topicbox.com/groups/developer/T1d7a671859643160. I updated the system and rebooted, therefore I cannot make my system usable again by following the steps in the topicbox link step by step, that use the beadm and bootadm commands.

What I have at the moment is a usable 2018.04 OpenIndiana live DVD, so that is where I have to start from to fix my issue.

As there are few variables here, it's best to be solved over IRC.

In general, from top of my head: Boot from the latest ISO, import the rpool, bootadm install-bootloader -f -R PATH.

On you can boot from disk, update the system, the latest loader should have the fix.

I did fix my system with the 2018.04 live DVD. After much fiddling in the ok loader prompt with commands that were meant to work with the latest live DVD, I finally stumbled upon the activation for boot of an old boot environment. From there I booted the system from HDD and updated successfully. Therefore:

ESC at boot menu
ok 'beadm list'
...
...
...
ok 'set currdev=zfs:rpool/ROOT/openindiana-2:' <- key command
ok 'boot'

worked for me to boot from HDD with the boot menu loaded from the 2018.04 live DVD.

Alternatively this didn't work from my old live DVD:

ok 'set currdev=zfs:rpool/ROOT/openindiana-2019:09:28:'

Thank you for the help on irc(irc id brancoliticus).
