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.
