a few days ago I installed a new system using the amd64 bootonly iso
and didn't have any problems with partitioning. Hardware is
atapci1: <Intel ICH7 SATA300 controller> port 0xd080-0xd087,0xd000-0xd003,0xcc00-0xcc07,0xc880-0xc883,0xc800-0xc80f irq 19 at device 31.2 on pci0
ad4: 476940MB <Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 GM4OA5CA> at ata2-master SATA150
On installation I had a different BIOS configuration though that caused
the SATA disk to be found as ad0, maybe that makes a difference.
