I wanted to try FreeBSD. As my internal SSD NVMe disk is already occupied by Linux installation I have installed FreeBSD on an external USB SSD Hard Disk.
The installation setup is shown in the picture.
The installation process went smooth without any problems.
After installation I have...
On my HP xw9400, when I boot from a stick with FreeBSD-12.1-RELEASE-amd64, I get a list as follows
BIOS drive C: is disk0
BIOS drive H: is disk5
Then it hangs at the vertical bar. Why might this be?
I am trying to install FreeBSD for the first time. I burned this ISO from the FreeBSD ftp and burned it using Windows Disk Image Burner to my Windows computer's DVD drive. I then booted it onto my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (1st Gen) using a Dell external DVD drive. I reach the bootloader...
Mobo: Aorus Gaming 7 z370
Dual boot Win10 and FreeBSD on separate drives.
Win10 is in an Optane/iRST config, so it's enabled in the BIOS.
When I want to boot into FreeBSD, I find that the only way to do so is disabling iRST, otherwise this happens during boot:
Interestingly I have been struck by the same issue that is always only referenced for ThinkPad users, although I don't have a ThinkPad but a Clevo N130WU (which is quite a common laptop known around the world under different brands).
I could only get resume from suspend-to-RAM working by first...
I fixed an ACPI problem with an old motherboard. Here, I document the steps I used to repair it:
Trying FreeBSD 12.0 on an old Pentium 4 machine, with Intel D915GAV motherboard, latest BIOS version. Everything seems to be working OK except that I have an ACPI error report in dmesg on boot...
I'm wondering if it's possible to install FreeBSD 12.0 on a GPT disk but on a server whose firmware is not UEFI. I found this thread that says it's possible. Can you confirm this or even add more details?
I would like to try FreeBSD after I tried out Linux. I have tested FreeBSD earlier on VirtualBox, and it succeeded. I have created my FreeBSD USB using dd as my first attempt on Kali Linux, following the tutorial. I have used FreeBSD-13.0-CURRENT 2019/2/28 memstick.img as my release for testing...
from this list:
and from column "F":
"Board supported by [http://www.flashrom.org flashrom] (Y/N)?"
only the ones which say "Y" ( so that i can flash the BIOS via software using flashrom),
what are the best freebsd friendly boards?
im looking for a "universal" SPI programmer/flasher so that i can replace the BIOS firmware and boot up computer fast with FreeBSD..
which SPI programmer/flasher you recommend? where to buy?
does someone have experience using SPI programmer on Thinkpad X series? it should be used a SPI...
I found this https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006903/graphics-drivers.html. It states that in the desktop bios I can disable the integrated intel graphics. Is this tied into the windows os? because I can only get basic bios settings with the delete key. It mentions...
Firstly, I couldn't find an answer for this specific problem, so I apologize when this is a common problem.
Recently I installed FreeBSD again on a new laptop (Thinkpad T470 20HES2SF00). On my desktop, the OS runs without problems with Xorg.
I have chosen FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT for that, because...
I'm trying to install FreeBSD 11 Release on one of my machines and I noticed that dmesg shows these warnings:

I've been using FreeBSD 9 on a fairly old computer based on Intel® DG45FC motherboard, with a Celeron 64bit CPU. After 3 years lying there gathering dust, I've decided to repurpose it and run the latest release.
So far, I've been unsuccessful at booting FreeBSD 10.3/11.0-RELEASE (AMD64)...
Hi, I am running a Dell R710 Poweredge Server with FreeBSD 10.3. Currently I have 48 GB of physical memory in the server. However I am getting the following, and it appears that not all of the memory is showing up correctly. In dmesg I see the following: real memory = 51539607552 (49152...
I've burned the i386 ISO of 10.2 to a USB stick, and I'm attempting to install it on a Dell Vostro 200. When I plug the USB stick into the computer and attempt to boot, the computer simply freezes on the pre-boot screen where it shows the Dell logo and prompts F2 for setup and F12 for Boot Menu...
