Description

During the installation, it allow user to configure the partitions. but it is not able to handle it properly when there is a partition with label "/boot".

Below is the steps I met the issue.

1. I configured below partitions

/boot 512M
/ 6680M
swap *

2. During the bootup. I saw below message

0:ad(0,a)/kernel
No /Kenrel

3. I can locate the loader in ad(0,d)/loader

4. And it will not correctly mount the ad0s1a as root file system

and below are the info i found on the server.
