Unfortunately, I installed and removed again quite a number of systems these past days and I am getting confused over what happened in which platform... :-) I think it was ada0, but I may remember it wrong. I am wondering if the device name may have had an "s" in it? But that could have been the longer version that mentions the slices. Sorry for not being very helpful here.

Thats ok :)

Somebody else mentioned same issue, and we just needed to add ada[0-9] to devices we
probe. If you get a chance, give it a whirl on 8.0-RC when its out, and let me know
if its still broken, along with the device name its using.
