Can you provide us with the figure numbers of the installer screenshots that are wrong or missing? That would help identify which ones you mean. Also, can you describe your path through the installer, which choices you are making to get to these screens?

I deleted my screenshots of FreeBSD 11.1 installation, but this is the path through the installer, these are the choices that I am making to get to these screens:

Press [Enter] key to start the installation process.


FreeBSD Grub Menu

2. On the next screen select Install option and press [Enter] to continue.


FreeBSD Installer

3. Select your keyboard layout from the list and press [Enter] to move forward with the installation process.

4. Next, type a descriptive name for your machine hostname and press [Enter] to continue.


FreeBSD Machine Hostname

5. On the next screen select what components you want to install in the system by pressing the [space] key. For a production server it’s recommended you choose only lib32 compatibility libraries and Ports tree.

Press [enter] key after you’ve made your selections in order to continue.


FreeBSD Components

6. Next choose the method your hard disk will be partitioned. Select Auto – Unix File System – Guided Disk Setup and press [enter] key to move to the next screen.

In case you have more than one disk and need a resilient file system you should opt for ZFS method. However, this guide will only cover UFS file system.
