Description Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2015-10-18 14:53:35 UTC
Using any 11.0-CURRENT in the last 2 months, the Apple iMac 1024 27" runs EFI boot successfully from the internal SD card bay, but is unable to complete the boot process. The boot loader and kernel are started, but the root fs has not mounted yet.

I don't know how to get a dmesg this early on, but the console displays this repeatedly every few seconds:

Under 10.1 this system booted successfully from the same device and SD card. Is there any further info I can grab?
