OK, I admit I don't know what is going on here. Someone with more
experience is needed.
Just for comparision, here is the beginning of 'disklabel ad0' of one
of my FreeBSD machines:
Note the difference: type='ESDI' vs 'unknown', disk='ad0s1' vs
'amnesiac'. This must indicate something, but I have no idea what...

... except that your system doesn't see a meaningful disklabel in the
only slice on this disk, as it says above.
