    Solved System wide GELI encryption password change

    I've set up remote VPS systems with GELI disk encryption, including swap encryption, during FreeBSD 12.2 installation. I've locked down SSH quite securely too so I presume now when remoting in, security is reasonably assured. I want to address the possibility that within the VPS terminal's web...

    "Operating System Not Found" on ThinkPad G40

    Hello, I have an old IBM ThinkPad G40 with an mSATA to IDE adapter so I could use an SSD in the machine. The installation went just fine. However, when I boot the machine (from the drive), it says "Operating System Not Found". I'm not sure if this is related, but the BIOS does not have...

    Multi user = stuck at logo. Single user = kernel panic

    tl;dr I added 'snd_driver_load="YES"' and now I am stuck at freebsd logo with loud fans. I haven't been able to get audio to work on my new FreeBSD 13-CURRENT install. I had basically tried everything, reconnected everything and pressed every google, bsd forum and bug tracker link and done...

    Trouble writing arm64-aarch64-memstick to microSD to boot netgate sg-1000

    I have a mini router from netgate - the SG-1000. It is sold as a pfsense device but it has a microSD card slot inside of it. I have what I *thought* was a good recipe for writing a FreeBSD img file to an SD card, but when I put the SD card into the netgate SG-1000 (and insert the jumper on the...

    Solved FreeBSD fails ( and other BSDs) to boot if system has more than 5 devices

    Only recently started to try BSD systems but for my dismay whenever I booted a system that had more than 5 devices ( HDDs, SSDs , USB drives ) it locks ( freezes ) during the device enumeration. Found this behaviour in several flavours ( FreeBSD, OpenBSD, XigmaNAS, GhostBSD ) in several...

    Can't boot unless I disable RapidStorageTech in BIOS

    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: nvme_ctrlr_start_config_hook...

    Some questions about the boot messages

    1. Some messages are available after booting (using dmesg), but some are not. What's up with that? A lot of the time, the messages that I want to see aren't included in dmesg. 2. For messages that aren't available in dmesg, are they captured elsewhere? 3. The output during boot seems overly...

    FreeBSD boot sequence under the hood

    Hi guys. I must admit I am starting to lose it :D I have been investigating FreeBSD internals the last week and it really looks like magic to me. First thing I want to state my objectives. I want to build a sort of live/ro/non tamperable installation of FreeBSD. I have investigated NomadBSD to...

    Other NVMe boot drives with legacy BIOSes without UEFI using loader(8)

    What I'm considering doing is using a generic two port M.2 drive (SATA and NVMe) as my root and swap device. Two of my systems on the network I'm constructing do not suport UEFI (HP Microserver G7 N54L). The M.2 SATA SSD is going to be connected to the internal systemboard SATA port. I'm...

    I just created a new system from sysinstall (used the 12.0-RELEASE ISO) and chose to use the nice, menu driven ZFS boot config that is now in sysinstall. Everything went fine and I am booted up, etc. however I am really surprised to see all of the individual filesystems that were created for me...
