Default "no root device found" while installing


I am trying to install FreeBSD on this:

HTML Code:

HTML Code:
It has however hard drive changed, because the oryginal was faulty. I have currently 160GB Samsung installed.

BOIS sees the hard drive no problem.

After going through whole setting up process I get to the point when installer wants to start copying files. It comes up with a message asking if I'm sure I want to contunue and I confirm. At this point I get a message:


no root device found - you must lable a partition as / in the lable editor
Next it says the same thing for SWAP.

I tried installing other systems and they work just fine, but still prefere FreeBSD. Also this is not my first time installing/using FreeBSD so it's not like I forgot to set labels up etc...

Any idea what could be causing that?
