finally got freebsd 10.1 release to run on my machine, it was a simple 
matter of disabling 'uefi' and do a non-uefi install.

as always, the first thing done post install was "freebsd-update fetch", 
followed by "freebsd-update install" and then issued a "reboot".

during shutdown, the system just froze at "all buffers synced".
had to issue a hard reboot which raised various issues related to disk 
not cleanly unmounted during previous shutdown.

went ahead and re-installed the system thrice, just to confirm that this 
problem is repeatable, and yes, it is.

any work arounds?
