Comp configuration: CPU P4 650 model; MB ASUS P5GD1Pro with on-board ICH6
NVIDIA 9400 GT; 4GB DDR-SDRAM; HD0 (WinXP/C, WinXP/D, Scientific Linux), HD1

Installation: PCBSD9.0-BETA1.5-x64-DVD.iso, ZFS, GNOME, NVIDIA,
Base-Devel, Base-l18N; sys.lang=En, keyb=default.

The attached *.zip contains 3 files.

1MBR.dat is MBR in HD1 after full ntfs-formatting; partition deletion;
and creation of 2 primary partitions: 1st with ntfs, and 2nd without
formatting. PCBSD was installed on 2nd partition without problems.

2MBR.dat is the MBR after deletion PCBSD partition (which had been
installed before), and creation the primary one without formatting.
PCBSD installation on that partition was halted.
3rd file contains the report.

These MBRs are different in 2 bytes in FreeBSD range.

Main: the same error had occured, when I had installed
PCBSD over already installed one without preceding its deletion.

The check experiments were realized with the same results.

Best regards
