Comment(by mjanosi):

 I will try it, but I've already tried PCBSD8-STABLE-20100517-x64-DVD.iso,
 unsuccessfully, so unless you fixed something this past week, it'll
 probably fail. I took the defaults, but here is the output for fdisk:

 ******* Working on device /dev/ad0 *******
 parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are:
 cylinders=484406 heads=16 sectors/track=63 (1008 blks/cyl)

 Figures below won't work with BIOS for partitions not in cyl 1
 parameters to be used for BIOS calculations are:
 cylinders=484406 heads=16 sectors/track=63 (1008 blks/cyl)

 Media sector size is 512
 Warning: BIOS sector numbering starts with sector 1
 Information from DOS bootblock is:
 The data for partition 1 is:
 sysid 12 (0x0c),(DOS or Windows 95 with 32 bit FAT (LBA))
     start 63, size 20980827 (10244 Meg), flag 0
         beg: cyl 0/ head 1/ sector 1;
         end: cyl 1023/ head 5/ sector 63
 The data for partition 2 is:

     start 20980890, size 31455270 (15359 Meg), flag 0
         beg: cyl 1023/ head 255/ sector 63;
         end: cyl 1023/ head 15/ sector 63
 The data for partition 3 is:

         end: cyl 1023/ head 15/ sector 63
 The data for partition 4 is:
 <UNUSED>

 No, thank you! I love PC-BSD and have been using it since 1.2 and even
 donated $50 to it a while back.
