I tried to install both 9.0 RC-3 amd64, everything was fine, it named my hard drive as ad0. Then I realized that I need 8.2 amd64, installer recognized my hard drive as ad24, and partitions were named as ad24s1.. and so on.
My installation failed.
Can it be fixed somehow or should I patiently wait until full release 9.0?
I can list my hardware here if needed.
