Description

hi!
i can set in the installer / slice as ZFS, but system can't boot from ZFS slice.
Solution1: Add additional check on installer that /boot slice is on UFS filesystem.
Solution2: recompile bootblock with ZFS support
Solution3: migrate to GPT (gpart) as partition manager.

Thanks for the heads up.

Just fixed this in SVN, should be corrected for 8.0-RC and onward.
