FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p15 won't reboot

Hi,
I've got a new PC that needs to run FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p15. The OS installs and runs fine, but when I use reboot or halt -p, the system will shutdown to the point of telling me all buffers are sync'd and the uptime, but never reboots or powers down. Using shutdown -r reboots the system as expected.

After reading a number of posts to the forums, I've tried both PS/2 and USB keyboards. There's only the onboard SATA controller, no hardware RAID.

System specs:
Filesystem - mirrored ZFS on SSDs
Processor - Intel® Core™ i5 -8400 Processor
OS - FreeBSD 11-RELEASE-p15 (userland is p16)
System Board - ASRock H310M-HDV/M.2 System Board
System Memory - 16GB (2- 8192MB) DDR4-2666 288-pin DIMM
Hard Drives - 250GB M.2 SSD, 250GB Samsung EVO 860 SSD
Video - Intel® UHD Graphics 630
LAN - Intel® Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet

Code:
dmesg output:

This begs the question, why? Why do you need to run an outdated version on a new PC? Why this specific version?

Topics about unsupported FreeBSD versions

Looking at the bunch of ACPI errors my first guess is that your PC has hardware that's not supported by an old version of FreeBSD. ACPI is used to power off the machine. So try 11.2-RELEASE or the latest release candidate of 12.0.

It's one of my production servers. Once 12.0-RELEASE comes out, they'll all get upgraded, but for now, running this version is mandated.

That's what I thought, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks!

It's mandated to run an outdated version? That makes no sense what so ever. For the record: I know how production works, but we're talking 11.0 which went EOL one whole year earlier (November 2017, see here).

Pushing the upgrade cycle back due to production issues makes sense. But pushing it back one whole year without any planned upgrades is plain out unprofessional and a sign of severe negligence. You do realize that upgrades can be done within 20 - 30 minutes on older hardware and that minor versions don't pose as much risk as major ones?

Sorry, but this is just stupid.

It's not that unusual to have software freezes on a project.
Lots of companies I worked for had an "end of the year change freeze". But that only lasted a month, during December, not two or more years. And if there was a major security bug during that time the change freeze went out the window.
