Ok I got beyond the first part by patching
/usr/libexec/bsdintall/zfsboot to create 800GB partitions.
Now I have some questions as the zfs raidz-1 on root will not boot from
boot0cfg which I installed upon my original setup booting win7 and
Will Grub2 boot FreeBSD11 installed on zfs raidz-1?
If so can someone give me the scoop on how to do that as I just can not
afford to mess that up.
It will need to boot Win7, freebsd-10.0 and freebsd-11.0 on zfs raidz-1
I can I move the raidz install to different SATA controllers? or will I
need to get down and dirty and fixup the drives in the raidz ?
As Always Thanks
