Unable to boot into 11.2 RC2
Unfortunatly this seems to remain an issue since beta 2. I continue to get the following error from all versions. This appears after attempting to upgrade and after a fresh install with bios boot selected.
Gptzfsboot error 32 lba 30031240

Brian: do you have an existing 11.1 boot environment you can boot into? If not, can you do an 11.1-U6 install and create a debug (System -> Advanced -> Save debug) to this ticket? This will give the dev a more detailed view of the hardware on the system.
Also, is the BIOS on the system at its latest revision?

Shall I understand "since beta 2" as that 11.2 always had this problem while 11.1 is working? Or there was something in between? The trigger here is likely a switch from GRUB to BSD loader in 11.2, which replaced one set of compatibility issues with another, different one. Unfortunately we have number of reports like that. Sometimes switch to UEFI instead of BIOS, if system supports that, helps.
Unfortunately, "gptzfsboot: error 32 lba 30031240" just tells that some "controller failure" happened when tried to read blocks at specified offset. The offsets themselves looks OK, I suppose loader tries to read GPT tables, so the real problem cause is not reported here. Unfortunately without ability to reproduce this I am not sure we can do much to help here.
What you could do for experiment is to try booting 11.2 with all devices other then the boot one detached. It would leave BIOS and loader less chances for mistake. Please let us know it go.
Also you could try to install vanilla FreeBSD (11.2 and then 12.0) in the same GPT+ZFS way to reproduce the issue, and then report it upstream, if so.
Also just a note, I see that couple of your disks are attached to SATA controller running in legacy mode. Make sure to check that it can't be switched into AHCI for better performance.
