No matter what I do, I can not get any version of FreeNAS 8 (RELEASE or any of the betas) to boot after the install.
First, immediately after the install, whether I use a USB stick or actual drive, I get:
GEOM: ada0: the primary GPT is corrupt
GEOM: ada0: using secondary instead -- recovery...
Then, after the reboot, I get the same message, followed by this:

The kicker of it is, no matter what I type: ufs:/dev/ada0p2 ufs:/dev/ada0p1 ada0 /dev/ada0p2, etc etc etc, it still tells me it can't mount the root.
I have honestly tried everything:
using a physical computer
using a hard drive
using two or three different USB sticks
zeroing the start of the drive with "dd"
killing the partition table with fdisk
Zeroing the WHOLE drive
In fact, the only time it actually installed AND booted was when I created a blank virtual image from within VirtualBox and used that instead of a physical disk.
Thanks in advance for anybody that can point out what I might be doing wrong.
