Yes. That's it, as shown in my prior post (`gpart show` output).
The USB memstick is dd'ed with memstick.img of head, so UEFI-enabled
root-on-UFS installation without ZFS and starts bsdinstall if booted.
And internal disks are both working root-on-ZFS installation, each of
which have raw UFS partition (not inside ZFS pool) for (mostly for now)

I'll report later in reply to your another message (stating that Diff5
But unfortunately, I have only one notebook (without serial I/F) as
non-dead computer. So I wouldn't be able to report boot logs.
Thanks in advance!
