    Does Freebsd support direct UEFI booting?

    The Freebsd Handbook, section 12.2 on the boot process, contains a note that seems to state that Freebsd does not support direct UEFI booting. The concern is that on our two Freebsd machines, the BIOS are set for UEFI. The note reads: Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks in advance.

    Solved Adding entries for others OSes to bootloader

    Hello, I have a computer on which the main OS is FreeBSD, while other OSes are installed on dedicated disks. Is it possible to chainload the boot managers from the FreeBSD bootloader or do I have to rely on grub2 ? If 1 is possible, then is it possible to map disks to make windows believe it...

    Bootloader on SD Card directing to another HDD?

    I've been really pulling my hair out with this one. Got a bit of a tricky hardware setup with SATA1-4 as raidz3, and SATA5 as the encrypted ZFS root os disk: The caveat being that I cannot boot from this drive via the BIOS when SATA1-4 are installed, so I need to boot to an SD card and have that...

    FreeBSD on MacBook Pro (15", 2017)

    Hi everyone! This will be my first post on the FreeBSD forum (and, in fact, any forum anywhere). I've used Linux (mostly Debian and later Arch Linux) for most of my life on the computer, but for the last two years or so I've been using a Mac.

    Hi, sorry for the ignorance, it is the first time that I install FreeBSD.
