I am trying to install FreeBSD 12.1 amd64 on a physical machine from 2010 using a 26GB USB drive and this machine only has traditional BIOS.
I created the bootable USB drive using
Bash:
dd bs=4M if=FreeBSD-12.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img of=/dev/sdd; sync
on the Debian. The machine can boot into FreeBSD loader, however, the boot process stuck at
Code:
can't find '/boot/entropy'
and I can't go any further.
I tried some solutions from other threads such as hw.vga.textmode=1 hw.pci.enable_msix=0 but they don't work.

Follow-up to the Phishfry comments on sc(4)

Then get a list of supported video modes:
vidcontrol -i mode

Test it (for example MODE_306)
vidcontrol MODE_306

And finally make it permanent:
/etc/rc.conf
Code:
allscreens_flags="MODE_306"
