Description Jos Dehaes 2021-10-26 09:58:52 UTC
I'm trying to install FreeBSD on a free partition in my desktop system with following hardware:

ASUS prime B560-PLUS
i5 11600
radeon rx 460
Samsung 980 pro NVMe drive (Linux)
Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB SATA SSD (Linux)
Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SATA SSD
32 GB corsair DDR4-3200 RAM

System already has linux installed on the NVMe drive, and another distro (which I want to replace with FreeBSD) on the 500 GB SSD. I created an USB stick with the 13.0 dvd ISO. Bootloader shows the boot screen, but whatever option I choose (safe mode, verbose), the kernel locks up hard the moment it tries to start. Last messages are about EFI Framebuffer. The iGPU is disabled in BIOS, output is via the rx460.

Also created forum post (and was suggested to create bug here):

Tried legacy boot too, and then it gets further but still locks up.

Title of bug 255073: 

>> boot (UEFI): loader: copy_staging: no progress beyond 
>> EFI framebuffer information

With legacy boot, it does not get stuck after framebuffer, but then gets stuck later (see screenshot). I tried with latest 13-STABLE and exact same with legacy boot. When trying UEFI boot with that version, screen corruption ensues, but it seems kernel boots, but gets stuck also later. 

So there's another issue also on my system.

The other issue was ASUS BIOS. Updated to latest version and now fine. This can be closed.
