metastat says there are problems?  Did you run metaroot to revert vfstab 
to use the physical slice and then metadetach all (secondary) sub 
mirror(s) before rebooting?  And after you rebooted did you use 
metaclear on the (secondary) sub mirrors and then metaclear -r each 
toplevel mirror?  And then perhaps also use metadb to delete the state 
replicas so that metadb -i returns nothing.   You can still boot right?

please show
# metastat

# metastat -p

# metadb -i

# cat /etc/vfstab
