IP-KVM console

While attempting to setup DragonFly with a dedicated server provider via 
an IP-KVM, the installer is unable to find the rootvp. They have mounted 
an ISO and booted the machine, and this is what I see:

iso_mountroot: can't find rootvp
Root mount failed: 6
Mounting root from cd9660:cd8
no disk named 'cd8'
Mounting root from cd9660:cd9
no disc named 'cd9'
Mounting root from cd9660:/dev/cd0
no disk named 'cd0'

Manual root filesystem specification:

<fstype>:<device> Specify root (e.g. ufs:da0s1a)
?     List valid disk boot devices

When issuing "?" the installer sees the empty hard drives, a few md 
devices which I believe are the installer (md0, md0s0), vn 0-3 and sg0, 
sg1 and sg8. None of those appear to be valid.

I have seen this at some point years ago on a local machine and was able 
to work around it, but am not sure how to resolve in this case. 
Obviously the installer saw the boot device to get to this point.

Any other commands that could shed some light on the situation?
