Because it reparses the MBR. But the message above it just a warning
that it rejected ad0s1d, the rest should work fine. It should have no
affect on ad0s4.

Escape to comment prompt. The rest is out of my memory, so it might be
slightly wrong:
	set currdev=disk0s4a
	boot /kernel -s

Afterwards check whether ad0s4 device entry are present and /etc/fstab
is correct :-)
