I know this comes up every now and then, and usually is (suposedly) caused
by bugs in the firmware making it impossible to boot from some parts of
the disk - I've seen that before and always was able to recover by copying
the kernel(s) again.
This time it is pretty persistent:
Rebooting with command: boot

and I made sure the kernels end up early on the disk:
