    No, it should work... run the 'dmesg' command (login as root on one
    of the other virtual consoles).

I selected the whole disk for dfly, and formatting went fine.

I have even successfully installed working boot loader
(the F1-F5 prompt to select what partition to boot from)
to both disks, and it works fine.

In dmesg, I get seven of:

WARNING: da0 si_iosize_max=0, using DFLTPHYS

for both da0 and da1.

Then five of:

WARNING: #da/0x2000a si_iosize_max=0, using DFLTPHYS

On the first virtual console (I presume it's stderr) there is
plenty of error messages, they look like this:

SE32 0xda9d2ab8: Addr=0x73951000 FlagsLenght=0xd5000700

(I only copied he last one)

Here is a screenshot from an earlier attempt:

I have no idea what's wrong, Solaris works just fine with both disks.
