What do you mean 'the zfs option'? You mean you used the ZFS installation option in bsdinstall? That is a known issue that was fixed in later versions, here are the instructions to fix it: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2013-October/075504.html o Updates to bsdinstall(8). Please note the following: - 10.0-BETA1 introduces a number of updates to bsdinstall(8), notably the ability to install to a full ZFS filesystem. Please keep in mind that this is an experimental feature. - If using the ZFS installation option in *and* have enabled full-disk encryption is enabled, a few entries will need to be manually added to loader.conf(5) before the 'bootpool' zpool will be available after the system boots. This manual step is expected to be fixed in 10.0-BETA2. The entries that need to be added are: zpool_cache_load="YES" zpool_cache_type="/boot/zfs/zpool.cache" zpool_cache_name="/boot/zfs/zpool.cache" This can be done at the final menu of bsdinstall(8), when prompted to boot into the newly-installed system; alternatively, this can be done post-install, in which case, the following must be run before appending loader.conf(5): # zpool import -f bootpool -- Allan Jude
