Description Ryan Stark 2014-01-09 23:40:00 UTC
When attempting to install FreeBSD 10.0-RC4 -or- 10.0-RC5 from cd disc1,
the resulting system does not boot up after installation on an asus h87m-e
motherboard.

I used multiple sata hard disks. a WD sata2 1TB & a Seagate sata3 3TB
drive. I tried normal install options using 'whole disk' guided partitioning,
as well as ZFS single disk installs using MBR & GPT options.

Any/every install option has been tested good by inserting the hard disk
into an older machine and successfully booting the OS.

A fresh install using a 9.2-RELEASE cd dic1 will boot fine on the asus
h87m-e, however the onboard ethernet is not recognized at boot.

Fix: 

the work around I used was to install 9.2-RELEASE, add a usb ethernet
adaptor, and then use freebsd-update to update system to 10.0-RC5
successfully.
How-To-Repeat: install a fresh copy of 10.0-RC5 on an asus h87m-e motherboard, and try
to boot up system disk.

Hello,

I attempted a 10.0-Release install today, and the same effect is
present. The system will not boot off the hard drive.

Hello,

Seems with a little homework, I was able to boot my new 10.0-RELEASE OS. =)


After install, but before reboot, run: gpart set -a active ada0

It appears that other asus users of H85 & H87 motherboards are
experiencing the same issue.

Unfortunately this PR was never addressed before these versions of FreeBSD went out of support.  Sorry.

If this is still a problem, please open a new PR.  Thanks.
