Just tried installing on my MacBook pro the new 9.1 release of PC-BSD. The installation seems to proceed fine until the need to install a bootable partition, which I am guessing modifies the MBR. I have partitioned my hard drive as follows:
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *750.2 GB disk0
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS Volume 1 450.0 GB disk0s2
3: Microsoft Basic Data PC-BSD 289.1 GB disk0s3
with disk0s3 formatted for FAT32 Microsoft basic data. That is the partition on which I want to install PC-BSD.
On installation, I get the 'dd: /dev/disk0s3a: Operation not supported' error.
On a subsequent installation attempt, I tried modifying the kern.geom.debugflags to 0x10, (16), to see if that would help. It did not.
I partitioned my hard drive using OS X's disk utility. I am not an expert on MBR tables, I use rEFInd to boot multiple os's. What is the problem with the PC-BSD installer continuing the install process?
