#1100: Installer fails when trying to do dd on existing gpt partition with pc-bsd
installed

----------------------------------+--------------------------
 When trying to re-install pc-psd on a partition it has already been
 installed on causes the installer to fail when attempting to do dd on the
 partition.

 Being new to pc-bsd and trying to get it to work with grub2 and ubuntu I
 first installed pc-bsd successfully, but there was no grub entry.

 When trying to re-install pc-bsd to fix this loader issue the installer
 will fail when trying to overwrite the partition which pc-bsd has already
 been installed on. (I am sure there is an easier way to get loader issue
 fixed on a non-bootable pc-bsd install but I lack the knowledge
 currently.)
