    I don't think you can put a FreeBSD boot1/boot2 onto a DragonFly
    slice and have a result that works.  boot1 and boot2 hardwire each
    other's load addresses and boot2 is located at a different offset on
    a DragonFly slice then on a FreeBSD slice.

    What access mode is your BIOS using for that disk?  If it isn't set
    to LBA mode, try setting it to LBA.
