When you read the instructions you're supposed to recognise that the
examples are just that, examples, and not intended to be taken literally
in all circumstances. In current (for now anyway, it is likely to
change back soon, it seems) as Martin told you, the old device names no
longer work, anywhere, as part of the user interface - you need to use the
appropriate wedge name instead. Everywhere. Installboot is just one
place where that is true.
Perhaps installboot(8) could have an extra example added to show how
to installboot onto a wedge, but since the difference is just to replace
wd0a with dkN (for some integer N) (just as you would have to replace wd0a
with wd1a, or sd0a, or something else in appropriate circumstances) I'm
not sure even that is required.
This PR should close, there is no installboot or kernel bug here.
