That's how I fixed mine.  When I did the 10.3 to 11.2 upgrade I got
the same (or very similar) and it seems that 11 enumerates the disk
in a different fashion to 10.  Sadly, I didn't note down the precise
difference to can't report on what may have happened.

This only happened on my file server where the boot disk is not
in MBR format.  Other boxes using MBR didn't have issues.
