Comment(by kris):

 Our installer is basically doing the standard GPT / zfs mirror setup as
 described here:

 http://wiki.freebsd.org/RootOnZFS/GPTZFSBoot/Mirror

 When doing a similar setup here in virtualbox, it boots just fine. Does
 your motherboard support GPT / EFI setups?

 Another option would be to boot the installer, and then use the +/-
 buttons on the disk screen, to remove all the partitions, then create some
 traditional primary MBR partitions. With ad10s1 and ad8s1 in place, you
 can then go to the advanced screen and setup your custom layouts /
 mirroring for each. That may let the system boot if there is no bios
 update to fix GPT/EFI booting for your system.
