    I have a server that I am trying to install FreeBSD on using the FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick image (the server does not have a CD drive).

  12. Alternative Boot Loader

    Is there an alternate boot loader? BTX gets going enough to print it's version (1.02) and maintain a blinking cursor but beyond that it doesn't actually do anything. 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...
