Description Ben Woods freebsd_committer 2016-10-13 23:01:46 UTC
When trying to boot a system with both efi and serial output, the required configuration in /boot/loader.conf is to set:
console="comconsole,efi"

However, the "efi" option is not listed in the loader.conf(5) man page, so the user may be tempted to use the "video" option instead (which is listed), however this does not work on efi systems.

Please document the "efi" option for the "console" parameter.
