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.

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 ***

no longer having that notebook computer somewhat solved the installation issue

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.
