Of course it really can not be that the BIOS has something against combination of GPT+ZFS, but this combination may trigger some sort of bug/misbehavior. I have seen some pretty weird issues and have work in process to have a bit more fool proof approach, but I haven't had time yet to finalize it properly. Namely, what I have found is that in some systems the INT13 ah=08 can result with unexpected results - error from command reported or disk count not reported etc - something not really expected. It also may have to do about what other devices are there. And also if the system has plain BIOS or BIOS emulated on UEFI. rgds, toomas _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
