I have a NUC DC53427HYE. I am trying to install FreeBSD 10.1 with ZFS and disk encryption enabled. The installation stops at extracting ports.txz at 22% and overall progress 23%. After 10-20min the NUC reboots and I got the following error message: Mounting from zfs: bootpool failed with error 2: unknown file system. I have tried several times using different installation media and the same happens every time. If I install without encryption everything works fine.
We are not experts in FreeBSD; you would need to verify that FreeBSD 10.1 would support QS77 chipset with Ivy Bridge. Since this is a problem with the installation you would have to check with their forums.
