You've got more than 8 drives in your zpool? I ran into a similar problem a while back: the bios only tells the OS about the first 8 drives during boot, and that isn't enough to assemble a workin zpool from. Solution I adopted was to have a USB mem stick with /boot on it -- enough to get the kernel up and running and to assemble the zpool, which could then provide the root fs perfectly well.
