OS: dfly-2.2.0-REL

Installer quits (at newfs) when you try to install using part of disk (i.e.
using partition no. 2, 3 or 4 for dfly).

Reason: missing device nodes for disk label letters.

Fix: manually add disk label device nodes before running installer.

# ./MAKEDEV ad0s2a
# ./MAKEDEV ad0s3a
# ./MAKEDEV ad0s4a

Note.1: Doing it just for "a" makes all the other letters as well.

Note.2: problem occurs for both hammer and ufs FS selection.
