I just received the DVD from FreeBSD Mall, and attempted to install.
The boot process fails with a number of USB errors then the final message:
Mounting from cd9660:/dev/iso9660/FREEBSD_I386 failed with error 19
The key elements from the USB errors:
usb_alloc_device: set address 2 failed usb_error_timeout
ugen0.2: unknown @ usbus0
uhub_reattach_port could not allocate new device
The motherboard is ASUS P5N-E SLI
The processor is Intel core 2 quad 2.4 GHZ
I'm not sure if it's relevant, but when the boot process fails, I see
uhub0 and uhub1. When I boot in safe mode, it starts up fine but only
uhub1 is shown in dmesg.
It's very difficult to capture debug information given the FreeBSD machine
doesn't boot except in safe mode.
How-To-Repeat: Installation on similar motherboard.
I've isolated this problem to APIC.
Therefore, booting with hint.apic.0.disabled=1 allows the system to boot
I'll test a custom kernel with
and let you know.
Same with 10.2 10.3 11.0 and PCBSD 10.3 since it's using BTX CD Loader
PCBSD 10.1, 10.2 was okey, FreeBSD 10.2 and newer not.
Thank's for hint but.. shouldn't it be default!
For bugs that match the following
- Status Is In progress
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.
- Affects Base System OR Documentation
Reset to open status.
I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
Here is workaround i found somewhere.
It worked 100% all BSD's BTX Loader based: FreeBSD 10.2-3, FreeNAS 10.2, PCBSD
Used, and posted here:
"On the BTX loader menu Select 3: Escape to loader prompt. Write those 2 lines:
and hit Enter!"
But somehow can't run FreeBSD 11 neither TrueOS 18 for different reasons, from what i remember installed FreeBSD 11 on VirtualBox but workaround for newer system wasn't working (checked back for older worked), switched DVD controler from IDE to SATA in VBox and this helped for ISO like guy wrote in topic.
This is still an issue.
