I encountered the same symptoms today on both a 32bit and 64bit brand new install using gptzfsboot. It works for me when I use a copy of loader from an 8-current box with zfs support compiled in. I haven't looked into it much yet but it might help you. If you want, you can try the loader I am using from: http://www.egr.msu.edu/~mcdouga9/loader
