Comment (by gef_f):

 I was reading the functions-disk.sh and the gpart man page,
 http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=gpart&sektion=8, and I started to
 wonder if it is even possible to use the BSD bootstrapping code without
 using GPT? According to the BOOTSTRAPPING section, both of the possible
 bootstrap codes are used to boot from the GPT.
