#306: Cannot boot from mirrored zfs setup

 Priority:  major          |   Milestone:  8.1      
Component:  Installer      |     Version:  8.1-BETA1

Comment(by billksun):

 Okay, so I tried, but failed.  I may be doing something wrong here:

 I went to the installer, removed all existing slices from ad8 and ad10,
 and created ad8s1 slice and ad10s1 slice.  Then in the advanced screen I
 created a 4GB SWAP partition from ad8s1, with the rest as zfs mirror with
 ad10 added into the pool mounted on "/".  Noticed that I wrote ad10, not
 ad10s1.  The zfs config dialog only listed ad10 as an option for inclusion
 into the pool.

 Then in the log I see the following right before the installer returns
 with a popup that says an error occured.  The log didn't record any errors
 however, but this is what was last written on it:

 Running: zpool create -m non -f tank0 mirror ad8s1a ad10p2
 Runnning: zpool set bootfs=tank0 tank0
