This guide is good and will get you most of the way there. There are a few =
things missing however=2C zpool set bootfs needs to be set. Also if you dec=
ide on encryption you may need to set vfs.root.mountfrom in loader.conf and=
 add zpool import zboot to your rc.local because it wont automatically impo=
rt the boot pool.

To me=2C it sounds like you dont understand how ZFS works and you should do=
 some research. If you plan on doing a raid-z2 I assume you plan to use at =
least 3 disks. You want to keep your old partitions so using zfs on that di=
sk doesn't seem ideal. 		 	   		  =
