    Can install 10.3 to 11.1 but not 11.2 to 13

    I am repurposing a 10Zig Linux thin client terminal that has a dual core 64-bit intel atom with AES-NI, but I cannot install any version of FreeBSD beyond 11.1-RELEASE . I have tried every version in memstick form, 10.3, 10.4, 11.0, 11.1 which all install successfully and the installed system...

    Solved Preventing DVD detection at boot

    How can I modify FreeBSD boot/startup process so it doesn't check or try detecting a CD-ROM/DVD? I am using `FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3` on a 2004 `Toshiba` laptop as a pfSense box. The laptop has what seems to be an incompatible (or most likely just too old) DVD player. Some I/O identification...

    memstick image is not booting OS

    Hi All, I'm just trying FreeBSD for the 1st time. My initial impression is one of disappointment. I downloaded FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img.xz and unzipped it and successfully installed it on my USB Flash drive using the dd command. It appears to boot, initially, but after...

I was searching for a solution and it seems that this was not an issue with the earlier version of BTX. It seems that I would need...

    FreeBSD 10.3/11.0-RELEASE (amd64) IMG/ISO not USB bootable

    Hi! 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)...

    Solved vm_fault: pager read error, pid 1 (init)

    As my kernel messages were scrolling through I suddenly get this scrolling through endlessly: vm_fault: pager read error, pid 1 (init) If I look quick enough, it seems to happen at the very end of the boot-up. For what its worth, I am doing this very odd remote dual-boot setup where I change...

    Solved System won't boot after moving to a different disk?

    At work I have a 10.3/AMD64 system that currently has root on a UFS2 file system on a single disk, and I'd like to ultimately move it to ZFS on mirrored disks. However, as I'd like to use the existing disk as one of the two mirror disks, my first step was to clone the contents of the current...
