For problem #3, here is more information (by repeating to create the same problem for each case below)

1) FreeBSD Release 6.4 has no problem to install, but both 8.2-R and 9.0-R failed install.

2) Use 9.0 installation CD to install FreeBSD 9.0 by using entire disk, 9.0 will boot. Then installing the original Windows by using recovery CD by using part of the disk drive, then try to install 9.0 again, 9.0 installer still cannot see the partition table although FDISK sees partition table has no problem at all.

PS: The 9.0 seems preparing installation and partitioning the disk like Linux. This is no longer a BSD style :-(
