APU2C4 Boot hangs
Hardware: apu2c4 (http://www.pcengines.ch/apu2c4.htm)
Wifi-Card attached: Compex WLE600NX
mSATA drive attached: Samsung SSD 850 Evo
I tried to install 11.0-RC2 on an apu2c4 which stucks on boot and waits forever (screenshot attached). So I tried to install 10.3-RELEASE which installed without problems and updated to 11.0-RC2 via freebsd-update, rebooted, hangs right after loading the kernel.
I also tried 12-CURRENT but no luck either.
I don't know how to track down this problem. If I can supply further investigation, please let me know.

Sorry I just noticed that the update from 10.3-RELEASE to 11.0-RC2 worked but the redirection to serial console does not on 11.0 and 12-CURRENT.
That also prevents installing from memory stick via serial console.
I dont know if this is still a bug.
It turned out that I have to set
in loader.conf to get a serial console.
But this still prevents to get 11.0 to get installed on that device.
Hi, I successfully installed FreeBSD 11.0-RC2 by adding to /boot/loader.conf following lines:
I modified memstick image, then successfully booted it on apu2c4.
