	I finally had the time to try and install beta3 on my 
Macbook. It errors out with the following pc-sysinstall.log:

 kern.geom.debugflags: 0 -> 16
 Running gpart modify on /dev/ada0
 Running: gpart modify -t freebsd -i 3 /dev/ada0
 ada0s3 modified

 gpart: geom 'ada0s3': Operation not permitted
 EXITERROR: Error 1: gpart add -s 2048M -t freebsd-ufs -i 4 /dev/ada0s3

The funny thing is if I ctrl-F2 to a vterm it works on the 
command line. And if I reboot and try and install again 
it hangs on the same gpart command, but doesn't 
throw an error. I also noticed I can't check the following 
checkbox [ ] Partition disk with GPT. 

Also my Broadcom BCM5764M card doesn't connect:
