It was never able to. PC-BSD being based on FreeBSD where FreeBSD can only install on primary partitions so in turn why show extended partitions if they will only add to the confusion that might already be overwhelming a new user during the install...

So before I install PC-BSD, I have to move my data onto the extended partition on my 2nd drive before installing. It would be nice to install on a ext. partition through a advanced option.
