I am trying to boot up FreeBSD on a UEFI only laptop and failed so far. Here is some backstory
I am a long time Linux user and wanted to try out FreeBSD as a desktop OS. I plugged in my second hard drive and passed it through a kvm machine then installed FreeBSD and all that jazz...
After an abrupt power disruption, freebsd 13.0 got into an xfce login loop; When I tried to select a different hard drive from BIOS with Ubuntu, the boot process went into disk 0, disk 1, disk 2 selection process which fell back to the same freebsd nvme with the login loop issue. I have also...
I bought and replaced some new memory cards (PC4-25600) for a notebook PC (NEC, purchased in Japan) already running FreeBSD. The RAM cards fitted perfected into the slots. However, upon turning on, FreeBSD does not boot up and the screen is blank. I don't think it is even getting through the...
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:
ACPI BIOS Warning (bug): 32/64X length mismatch in FADT/Pm1aEventBlock: 64/32 (20160527/tbfadt-650)
ACPI BIOS Warning (bug): 32/64X length mismatch in FADT/Gpe0Block: 64/32...
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...
