Follow-up re: upgrade over 8.1 failed:

The target system was HP xw8200 dual-Xeon @ 3.4 GHz, 4 Gb. RAM, Nvidia
9400GT, dual-booting w/ primary boot device being an LSi SCSI disk interface
w/ da0s1 as windows disk and da1s1 as the 8.1 install.  Additionally it has
two IDE drives attached as ad0 and ad1 which are data only formatted
UFS+S.   The system functioned well  under PCBSD 8.1.

The abort-and-reboot problem is 100% repeatable.  It begins about three
minutes into the install while "cleaning up old files" is in progress and
then reboots.  I have attached a screenshot of the panic screen.  Sorry I
could not capture everything -- not enough lines on the display.

Please advise if you would like me to try anything before I attempt a fresh
