So, if partition table is still here after `true > /dev/ada1`, this means that
before reboot you have correct partition table.

And this means that gptboot by some cause thinks that GPT at the boot moment is
I assume, that when you return back the booting from ada0 in the BIOS,
partition tables on both disk are good? I.e. `gpart show` shows all partitions
without CORRUPT word.
Can you try to write gptboot from 10.3?
I.e. `gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /10.3/boot/gptboot -i 1 ada1` 
where /10.3/boot/gptboot - is bootcode from 10.3.
