I have just tried installing the new gptzfsboot with a 7.1-STABLE  
install, but all i got is a :
"No ZFS pools located, can't boot" message.

I used 7.1-STABLE DVD, but I have copied and installed /boot/pmbr / 
boot/gptzfsboot and /boot/loader from a
- -CURRENT system built with your patch and LOADER_ZFS_SUPPORT

All my disks have valid guid partition tables with p1 of type freebsd- 
boot with installed pmbr and gptzfsboot from -CURRENT,
and p2 partition of type freebsd-zfs with a valid pool that i can  
mount using LiveFS.

Any suggestions?
