Dear Developer,
Upgrade (and 1st reboot) went thru without any problem, but after 2nd reboot system was unable tu start (gptzfsboot: error 32 lba 1).
Downloaded and install 11.1-U6 again (I have got backuped config). Splited mirrored boot device in order to have backuped 11.1-u6 system. Downloaded 11.2 image. I try to prepare installation media, but written by Unetbootin has not booted (Invalid or corrupted kernel image). Rufus (v 3.3 and 3.4) caused BSOD when 99.6% of immage was written. My PC has not started with this pendrive attached. Connecting this pendrive caused immediate BSOD. I was able to repair it only with Gparted under Linux creating a new partition table (Gparted reportet corrupter partition table).
Only Image writer was able to write image to pendrive, but after booting I got just a blinking "\".
It is an HP N54L Microserver with 5x3TiB disks in raidz2.
The simmilar issue I had a few weeks ago, I tried to upgrade to the beta version:

Sorry, I forgot:
Boot device: pair of mirrored Sandisk Ultra Fit SDCZ43 32GB USB 3.0
As installation media I used several 8GB USB2.0 flash disks, all of them has same issue.
Image I wrote under Win7 64 bit, corrupted flash drive repaired with Gparted, an old Ubuntu live installation CD (v. 12.04).

Hey all,
I just wanted to chime in that I noticed the same behavior:
- Upgrade 11.1-U6 --> 11.2-U1
- All is well for the first reboot.
- The error described ((gptzfsboot: error 32 lba 1)) appeared for me on the second reboot, days later.
- I have not examined the USB-Stick in question very closely, but an attempt to do an "upgrade installation" on it failed. (as in: Attempt to boot gives the same error: (gptzfsboot: error 32 lba 1))
- For the moment I reinstalled FreeNAS on another USB Stick.

Let me know if I can test anything.

My Hardware is similar to the OP:
