Update.

To quote one of my favorite cartoon characters:

Pony feathers!

I tried to install PC-BSD using the procedure the above guy used for Ubuntu. I followed the instructions to the letter, and the install still failed. Near as I can tell, PC-BSD simply won't install to a gpt hard disc unless it can reformat the whole thing.

What's worse, the bios is now a mess, and the computer won't boot in any mode save diagnostic. I'm tinkering with bios to fix this, but so far I'm not having much luck.

And at this point, I'm seriously wondering why I'm doing this. I'm ready to say "the hell with it" and purge Windows 8 in favor of PC-BSD. Which is the operating system I would prefer to use anyway...
