i noticed i ran into an issue possibly uefi-related on a very modern notebook computer; the mobile computing device mentioned fails boot, so installation seems impossible.

any suggestions? the notebook computer has an 11-inch touchscreen. would the 10.1 uefi update solve this in potential? if so i'll go fetch the laptop and do a test run. also, there's the celeron processor that gives me reason to believe that speedstep can be disabled if needed.

theoryrhetorical update:

the discontinued use of celeron processors might have helped solve the toshiba issue.

There's not much to go on there. What version of FreeBSD did you try? What is the model number of the Toshiba?

never mind... turns out there was an issue with the uefi that was unrelated to freebsd, and of course said device still boots.

*** update ***

being without a readable ( at least in theory readable ) electronic notebook computer somewhat solved the installation issue.

the return of notebook support has been an accepted practice, so there are instances where certain functions can be withheld without causing problems with some of the modern processors and other hardware.

the mystery of the whereabouts of the notebook computer continues, though there is notice of worthy changes concerning the legality of police and sheriffs that forget what they take from you.

there is a theory that the notebook is still readable, so even when i am having trouble understanding where the dissappearing electrons and protons go, i should remain focused and understand that has nothing to do with finding a computer ( as far as i have known )

freebsd can go at any time, the notebook should stay... ( value=temp )

because the laptop / notebook ran away again, i am having difficulty testing the uefi and similar features for the sake of research mostly...

i am starting to realize why this would cause an installation issue on a lenovo.
