Ok I have installed 11.0 latest memstick image.

I patched/hacked bsdinstall ( /usr/libexec/bsdinstall/zfsboot) to 
install my zfs raidz2 using 800GB partitions.  And it even worked!

Now I need to boot this monster as well as my current 10.0 version until 
I can build my desktop upon the raidz, then I will decommission the 10.0 
version when the 11.0 version is up to snuff.

I have boot0 install to ada0 which boots win7 and 10.0 freebsd.

Can this also boot the raidz? It does not appear in the boot0 menu.

If so I can not find how to do this,  duck duck go doesn't show me the way.

Do I need a different boot loader?

If so which one and how to make it work.

Here is the layout as told by gpart
