Description

Choosing the ZFS option results in a system that starts to boot, but cannot mount the root slice because it doesn't know ZFS.

Trying to mount root from zfs:zroot/ROOT/default []...
Mounting from zfs:zroot/ROOT/default failed with error 2: unknown file system

I can force it to mount by running the following at a loader prompt:

load /boot/kernel/kernel
load /boot/kernel/opensolaris.ko
load /boot/kernel/zfs.ko

If I then edit loader.conf and add lines to load the modules, it will boot automatically:

opensolaris_load="YES" 
zfs_load="YES"
