I bought this card, because I need a professional audio device. The
driver seems to be available

The RME card is used for my home studio, I stopped working as a
professional audio and video engineer a few years ago, but I want to be
able to connect my machine by all kinds of interfaces to professional
equipment too.

Back to the topic, if there's the need to have a free primary partition
to install FreeBSD, I'll try to move data from one primary partition,
but IMO this is a showstopper. To be fair, I don't know the reasons for
FreeBSD, that a primary partition is needed, perhaps this has an
advantage I'm not aware of :).
