I've confirmed this is still broken in p7-01-06-2014. GPT has to be selected in order to make the FreeBSD bootloader work after installation. Otherwise the bootloader freezes upon reboot.

I just tested this in the upcoming 9.2 ISO: "PCBSD9.2-RELEASE-p11-01-09-2014-x64-DVD-USB.iso", not sure where you got the "-p7" from. It seems to work / boot just fine using the BSD loader and MBR. Can you re-test when that ISO is uploaded in a day or so?

I meant to paste in the latest 10 Stable ISO from your cdn. Will retest in a day or so when the next ISO comes out.
