Could you try to nuke the start of the disk, like

  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rwd0c count=128

and reinstall one more time? There is an heuristic in the bootloader
trying to find superblocks for raid configurations that might be fooled
by old garbage lying around - though I do not understand how it could go
wrong in your case.

Oh, btw: which file system did you choose for root? I hope it's not FFSv2,
because that would not work. Actually sysinst should realy not offer that
on ports that have no bootloader for it.
