After a major hardware failure, I was forced to reinstall.

Things went *relatively* smoothly, until reboot.

For some reason, openrc hangs either at fsck or one step earlier (misc binary formats).
fsck might be a false positive though, as '/fastboot' doesn't help.

Kernel config is here (as least till it expires).
amdgpu is the only card.

For some reason, I can't convert minimal iso to a sane uefi usb bootdisk (that is without using dd), but I know the machine is alive - it boots fatdog64 (from usb: that's uefi/grub (and the reason I don't want dd)).

I can't get things moving, cause at that point nothing is getting logged yet.
Can't google anything about such early problem either, probably because of that.

VoidMage,

Try the interactive startup. Read the comments in /etc/rc.conf and uncomment
Code:
#rc_interactive="YES"

This will let you start one service at a time.

To make use of your Kernel config, we also need to know the output of lspci.
