This isn't customer service. If you "dearly wish things to be fixed
ASAP," file bug reports and interact with other users. That interaction
is the only way to learn what the problems are and how to fix
them. Giving up immediately and complaining on these lists won't
accomplish anything.

Also, according to your message, you never even tried "switching to
SSD on FreeBSD 10.3."  So the title is misleading too.

You can change the partition table on a disk anytime you like...
