OSX beta did that too, ive been told the final no longer mounts type
Apple_Bootstrap partitions (i had a friend who is a apple developer
member file a bug for me) 

the public beta did not appear to cause any damage to it, it did not
render it unbootable, only left some macosish droppings all over the
floor.  and insisted on mounting it mode 0777 which is a huge security
hole.
