I have a server that is currently running FreeBSD 10.2. I am trying to do a fresh install of FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE using a memory stick. The stick boots with no issue until displaying the Boot Loader Menu. If I let it boot to multi user, the server reboots a few seconds later after it displays "Booting" with the blue background and a couple of lines after that. Booting to single user mode is fine.
I am affected by the pmap_activate() bug so per the errata, I typed set vm.pmap.pcid_enabled=0 before boot. It did not correct the issue.
I did download the image for 10.3 uefi and I can get to the installation screens with no issue. From what I can see with the 10.3 boot sequence, the 11.0 install reboots just before it would clear the screen and display the startup messages in bright white letters.

Can you please take a peek at the 11.1-STABLE snapshots and see if this is still an issue, if you still have the relevant hardware? Bootloaders have seen quite a bit of work since this PR.
