Just a me too.
Everything was working great with zfsboot from 8.2-RELEASE + a patch
As I update to 8.2-STABLE after v28 MFC, I have to write a new zfsboot
to be allowed to upgrade my pool. I get the "Read Error" after that.
PS - same comfig, a netboot with windows7 on first partition - so I
can't switch to gpt.
