Description Silvio Arnone 2019-01-04 10:17:00 UTC
Dear Sirs,

I am an absolute FreeBSD beginner and am writing here after suggestion got in the Forum. Briefing: as in the title, DVD and image stick install process aborts some lines after process starts and machine automatically reboots showing GRUB2.
Better than words a short video can show you what I mean, here:

Thread in the Forum here:
https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/freebsd-12-0-install-from-dvd-aborts.68960/

lshw machine here:
https://pastebin.com/nGx5K1NA

Two HDD on the machine: /dev/sda = only Windows 10
                        /dev/sdb = Linux GPT partitions ext4
                       (plus or minus 70 GB each plus NTFS for data, efi and swap) 

If needing more data, please, let me know.

Best Regards

Silvio Arnone

@Silvio, Can you detail exactly which DVD ISO (full filename) image you you downloaded and whether you have tried any others?

If you haven't tried any others, I would attempt the bootonly and memstick images, if nothing else than to give us a couple of more datapoints
