Installer fails when trying to do dd on existing gpt partition with pc-bsd installed

When trying to re-install pc-psd on a partition it has already been installed on causes the installer to fail when attempting to do dd on the partition.

Being new to pc-bsd and trying to get it to work with grub2 and ubuntu I first installed pc-bsd successfully, but there was no grub entry.

When trying to re-install pc-bsd to fix this loader issue the installer will fail when trying to overwrite the partition which pc-bsd has already been installed on. (I am sure there is an easier way to get loader issue fixed on a non-bootable pc-bsd install but I lack the knowledge currently.)

I'm constantly re-installing over GPT here, haven't seen any issues yet.. Do you recall the specific error messages? Also, are you trying a full-disk install, or selecting a single GPT partition to install onto?
