Description Adam Heinrich 2016-11-02 08:56:43 UTC
If I download the 11.0 Release (FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso) and I open the ISO on a Macintosh the Text Files are full of hex zeros.
If I download the 10.3 Release (FreeBSD-10.3-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso) and I open the ISO on a Macintosh the Text Files are ok.

the 10.3 Release I can install on a ASUS Platform without any problem.
the 10.3 Release I can't install on the same ASUS platform.

Where did you download it from, and using what software?  Did you verify the ISO's checksum after downloading it?
Comment 2 Adam Heinrich 2016-11-07 06:46:54 UTC
I download it from freebsd.org on a macintosh with drag and drop.

Some time this happens that all Text Files are full of hex zeros and the checksum is not right.

I downloaded the dvd iso image with firefox and the checksum is now ok.

BUT

Same download procedure iso checksum is ok :
the 10.3 Release I can install on a ASUS Platform without any problem.
the 11.0 Release I can't install on the same ASUS platform.

there must be a difference.

for 10.3 there are uefi install iso images
are they canceled for 11.0 ?

Neither of these relases are still supported.  Apparently, this PR never got noticed.

If you still have problems, please let me know and we can open a new PR.
