I am running FreeBSD 11 on a Raspberrypi B+. I have added an externally powered USB drive and formatted it with ufs from the Raspberrypi itself. The drive is new: I bought it today and I performed a complete surface check before using it.
So, after formatting it on the rpi I could mount it. I...
Sometime I encounter the problem with boot UFS in bhyve VM.
When I start or restart the guest I think in my mind it starts but just It doesn't start completely.
Connection to the console has no effects due to the "black" screen with no console messages.
But when I start bhyve VM with console...
My machine is a 64bit with GPT partition table and NO UEFI support.
I created 50GB partition and gave it to trueos in install. the installation create a zpool and all it wanted on that automatically.

I just performed a FreeBSD 11.0 install using the guided ZFS install option with encryption enabled.
After installing, I'd now like to add an additional set of disks to decrypt at boot-time, ideally, using the same process as the root drives.
Could anyone point me to the documentation as to...
Recently I decided to install the FreeBSD OS on my laptop alongside the Windows 7.
Now I've got a problem. When I try to boot from DVD, it starts to boot, but after a few seconds my laptop goes on a black screen and it seems that the external DVD ROM is silent.
I have waited for several minutes...
So I have installed FreeBSD a few times now, and it goes fine except I don't have a bootable system at the end. I get a grub error. I was previously using Linux (but those partitions were deleted to make room for FreeBSD.
During the installation I was never able to create a freebsd-boot...

I have a problem with booting my Freebsd 11.0 box with zfs as zroot. The idea behind installation of new drivers for em0 was that I have some problems with it watchdog that is killing my dhcpclient and losing connection to that box:

I have installed FreeBSD-RELEASE 11.0 with MIRROR (Double Disk). SWAP mirror too.
Mounting from zfs:zroot/ROOT/default failed with error 2: unknown file system
I can by pass the problem by loading kernels,
I read several times that changing ZFS checksum to sha512 could improve performances.
So, on a FreeBSD 11 computer installed with a ZFS boot device, I did "zfs set checksum=sha512 zroot" and everything seemed fine.
Until I rebooted.
When I rebooted, I had errors like:
ZFS: i/o error -...
I need to update the bootsector after upgrading zfs pool. In 10.3 the command to disable the Operation not permitted error was:
But that doesn't seem to work in 11.0:

When installing a new FreeBSD 11.0 with zfs root, the installer creates 2 zfs pools and puts the contents of /boot in zfs:bootpool/boot. /boot is a symlink pointing to /bootpool/boot
Normal boot process then does not mount bootpool (nice little security extra there) so the /boot symlink points...

Hello FreeBSD world,
Please pardon my ignorance and anything crass I might have typed out, but I cannot seem to get FreeBSD (11 and 10.3) to boot past the 'Booting...' text from either the ISO or the QCOW2 image file for QEMU/KVM (yes I extracted it first) using QEMU/KVM. I ran checksums on...
I have an old Thinkpad laptop. In order to boot FreeBSD I need to add a device hints. I tried two of them and both work. Those are:
I have only a vague idea what it does, it seems to affect AGP module in the kernel. I know that there is hint.agp.2...
Recently I've upgraded a FreeBSD server from v. 9.3 to v. 11.0 (through 10.3 because it "cowardly" refused to continue).
The system was using the old pkg_ so I deinstalled all ports and after the final update I freshly installed all of them.
I am using OpenLDAP on this system -...
I've been trying to put FreeBSD on my laptop (Dell XPS15, l502x). Previously, the memory stick worked (10.1 works), but on FreeBSD 10.3 and 11.0 (I haven't tried 10.2), boot fails with an "Operating system not found" message on screen. My laptop uses the traditional BIOS and UEFI

Hello FreeBSD community
I am having problems booting from USB after writing the FreeBSD 11.0 image to a USB drive, although I have had the same issue when trying the UEFI-memstick image of FreeBSD 10.3. I used the command from the install guide with the filename changed to reflect the new...
