  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Version changed from 7-BETA1 to 8.0-BETA

This should be fixed now in 8.0 with new installer. Even if the software is corrupt on disk, it'll still show up as "FreeBSD" and let you do upgrade. The only way it will absolutely fail is if the disk partitions / filesystems themselves get trashed.
