    Solved Installer fails to boot... hangs on at a line "ahcich0: AHCI reset..."

    I bought a Lenovo Thinkpad E485(Ryzen3 2200, only HDD attached) and trying to install FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE, but booting always stucks on a line: ahcich0: AHCI reset... and sometimes hangs on one line before or after that line. I'm wondering if the laptop is defective, in case I have to change it.
