Update to latest 2.4.x failed on VK-T40E2
The other night I went to update to the latest point release of pfSense and when it rebooted it never came back. Looking at the serial terminal, this is what I see upon boot:

Any thoughts on how to recover from this?

@grimson so you're thinking the install is hosed and reinstallation is the available recourse at this time?
Is the terminal set to 115200bps? If it's set to 9600 or 38400 then that would be all you would see.
Otherwise yes you can always re-install:
That will ensure you have a clean install. It's quick and easy if you have an mSATA drive. If you are booting from SD card you can install directly to it but you should remove the swap partition at install and move /var and /tmp to RAM after setup.
It doesn't look like you were running Nano though so it's probably not booting SD.
