Thanks for maintaining & supporting FreeBSD.
Having a high end HP elitebook working as a stable NAS solution, the laptop's battery serving as a cheap UPS, I decided to try building a high-end workstation using a Lenovo P51.

So a gave the latest FreeBSD a try.
Unfortunately the installer gets stuck when trying to build a pool.
Tried v10.4, v11 (stable) & v12 (latest)

The installer works untill the point it gets stuck in some loop while trying to create a pool of mirrored Samsung SSD 512 GB MZVLW512HMJP drives with NVMe controllers.

What is logged in the console is very very similar, if not identical to what is desribed in bug 211713.

Do not hesitate to query me for more detailed information.
I am prepared to cooperate in any test or procedure to get FreeBSD working on this box !
Obviously no data is on the laptop, except Windows which I can do without.
