Hello,
I'm trying to install 10.0 RC5 on Giada i50 with full ZFS. Ok it's marked 'experimental'. This PC was operating 9.2 root on ZFS without problem. No problem at all when installing but it seems like there is no boot code so the PC is unable to boot. I tried installing boot code after end of install ( gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 ada0) but it still don't boot.
Any idea to suggest?

Ok, so I reply myself. Are you alive guys? Thanks man, excellent job helping myself! ;)
The problem was that the install use GPT and this PC support only MBR. So I did an MBR version of root on ZFS just like we used to do with 9.0 or 9.2 and all was ok. Note for the users that will do that : don't forget to add the script on the install media (or properly formatted USB key) or you will have to enter dozens of line to set up all.
Reference install (GPT or MBR with mirror) --> http://daemon-notes.com/articles/system/install-zfs
