I downloaded the 10.1-BETA disc1 iso image for
sparc64, and burned it to media. I then used that
media to attempt an installation onto a spare
sparc64 machine that I have.

Using UFS as the filesystem, and more or less just
following the prompts, the system got installed OK,
and boots off of ZFS OK.

I then reinstalled onto a system that I manually
configured for ZFS.  This installation fails to boot
from the hard disk, dying like this:

---- snip, snip ----

LOM event: +487d+12h37m31s host reset

---- snip, snip ----

I have used my exact procedure in the past to install onto a ZFS
only sparc without issue.

Has anyone else tried booting a ZFS only sparc64 installation
