As the title says, the FreeBSD 13 boot has a strange behavior in my machine.

Dell LATITUDE E6500 | BIOS ver: A18

I have to say that I have used the specific image for USB memory, checked the image with shasum, and burned with dd to my USB memory as the handbook says.

Also say that I checked the status of the USB memory with binary stressdisk of the sysutils ports, no errors found, the memory is okay.

The problem is that if I let the boot menu counter reach zero, when loading the kernel it will freeze, forcing me to force a reboot, turning off the machine with the power button. If I hit enter before the countdown ends, it also causes the boot to freeze at "Loading Kernel ...", forcing me to reboot again.

But if I press any key, so that the countdown stops "any key" and then press enter to start the boot sequence, it does work.

It is the only way I can boot without freezing, I have tested the same memory on another machine with satisfactory results, as it should work.

Here I leave a video that he creates, also the forum post:
