I think that the file zpool.cache is missing or it contains pool data comin=
g=20
from the USB stick you used. I wrote an article for this, but unfortunatell=
y=20
is in Greek... The article is here:=20
http://www.freebsdworld.gr/node/38#zpool_cache
Besides the problem that you will not understand what I write (:)) you can=
=20
follow the commands. You will probably understand what's happening there. J=
ust=20
skip the part that I cange the names of the gpt partitions (the one that I=
=20
have a bunch of "gpart modify" commands)

I hope it will be usefull to you

Regards
Elias
