Description Thomas Hühn 2014-01-10 18:10:00 UTC
It is unclear how to proceed with a restarted installer when the disk had already been selected.


Reboot the installation CD.
How-To-Repeat: After I got the error described in http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=185644, I chose the option to restart the installer and did the same things (in the hope that the archive might be downloaded correctly this time).

When choosing the disk in the ZFS-on-root dialog (stripe, 1 disk), i get this error:

"gpart: geom 'ada0' : File exists"

It would be nice to have some kind instructions here how to proceed.
