I allready had two bootable partitions, as i migrated from ataraid. The 
'gmirror label' command did not work on mounted devices. If the trick      
kern.geom.debugflags=16, as Axel wrote, doesn't work, possible solutions are 
dump/restore of / to a fresh disk or starting from the life-cd. You can also 
try to boot from a disk of another machine.
