Hello! I have a lot of background info of my setup here, but the short version is:
FreeBSD 12.2 server, RAIDZ2 with 5 disks in a RAIDZ2. I just tried to replace drive da0, and now my server won't boot.
I'm sure I set this all up wrong, but I hope someone can help me recover.
Earlier, I was...
I've been using FreeBSD on a virtual machine for a while now, for the reason that I'm a noob, in case it breaks something.
Well I have decided to use FreeBSD as the base system, but my problem is that it is impossible for me to boot FreeBSD. I followed the steps in the manual, I got the...
using freebsd you can encrypt the system pool zroot. But then you have to enter the passphrase on each boot-up.
Please, excuse that I do not know that much about geli and the boot up mechanisms in freebsd. I am still learning.
As far as I know you can use key files to attach a geli...

I was trying to configure FreeBSD 13 on my Raspberry Pi 4 for use as a home server. It no longer boots, and I suspect the reason is changes I made to `/etc/fstab` but I'm not totally sure. When it boots it hangs here:
The problem is that...
I have a i7 ivy-bridge put to CSM compatibility with BIOS first. My settings for the dom0 are:
Hi, I'm new here, and I have been trying to install FreeBSD on my virtual machine for a while, but the problem is that FreeBSD always hangs on the boot screen, more specifically at the EFI framebuffer information. I have a screenshot of the issue and I tried a lot of things:
change the devices...
How to change passphrase for encrypted ZFS disk for FreeBSD 13?
I saw this post, but "/boot/encryption.key" is not found. Do I change the passphrase by booting into the disk, or booting into the install-disk? And, if I boot into the install-disk, how do I mount the specific partition to change...
Hello everyone. I have a computer with Windows, Arch and Lubuntu and all these systems are booting from a Multi-Boot. Recently, I decided to download freebsd for some tests and decided to put the OS in my multi-boot. I allocated 20 GB, installed in UEFI/GPT and made 3 partitions from UFS...
i just did a freebsd-update fetch, freebsd-update install and reboot from 13.0-RELEASE to 13.0-RELEASE-p2 and get greeted with this:
Just yesterday everything was fine, zpool status had all four hard disks ONLINE... what can i do? :/
I have 3 disk attached to the system and I wanted to setup it as raidz, after running set commands by gpart show output looks like below (vtpd0 , da0 and da1 are disk attached to system )
root@mfsbsd:/temp # gpart show

I’m trying to decrease the screen resolution for the console on my laptop which has a default resolution 1920x1080 ( 12.5 ‘’) booting in UEFI.
At the end of the boot, I got a nice console very bright and clear but with it's very very small and makes the reading very complicated
Happy and healthy 2021 to every and each one!
This is my story: I've just built a FreeBSD machine to use primarly as a NFS/ZFS home server. CPU is a Pentium G4560 (7th gen), case NAS 800, MoBo mini-ITX, 32GB ECC mem and 5x 4TB HDD Toshiba N300.
MoBo has only 6 SATA connections in...
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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
