pfsense 2.4.5_1 does not boot on Gen2 2012R2 HyperV VM
After upgrade to 2.4.5_1, the boot fails with Input/Output error when loading the kernel. Tested on 2 VMs, both suffer this problem.
Booting kernel.old works fine. The kernel shipped with 2.4.5_1 is much larger than 2.4.5, probably the loader can't load it in the EFI environment

The old kernel can be booted as Jan stated by entering
when system is stuck in bootloader.
My workaround for now is to temporay restore the kernel.old to kernel:
- cd /boot
- mv kernel kernel.broken
- cp -a kernel.old kernel
Rebooting the system works now.
Haven't noticed any issues when running with the old kernel,
but for sure this is suboptimal and issues might occur.
