Install DVDs (17.12 and 2017-3-31) fails to boot


#1

Hi, I’m a japanese had like to use TrueOS.
Install DVDs of TrueOS 17.12 and 2017-3-31 are fails to boot .

  1. power on.
  2. display the boot menu.
  3. load kernel modules. (kernel and several *.ko)
  4. boot… black out ? oh no, system reboot. :frowning:

The install DVD of others,
FreeBSD 11.1-R: same as above.
TrueOS 2017-2-22: boot and start the GUI installation, but kernel panic in extracts misc/trueos-desktop.
PC-BSD 10.3 and FreeBSD 11.0-R: no problem.

The target PC is a hp Elite 8300 SFF with RADEON HD6450, 16GB RAM, and 3TB HDD x 2.
These DVDs are able to boot on another PC.

ISO = DVD
IMG = USB

If you want to verify, TrueOS is based off of FreeBSD12.-CURRENT, so grab the 12. image(s)

pcBSD is equal to FreeBSD 10.*

FreeBSD 11 is in the picture

I tried to update the BIOS. boot errors changed but not resolved yet.
(I’m using *DVD.iso images)

BIOS versions of hp Elite 8300 are:
v2.05: fail (initial version)
v2.57: same as v2.05.
v2.99: same as below.
v3.04:

  • TrueOS 2017-3-31: boot and finish the installation, but kernel panic after select “Reboot” in the installation menu. Then reboot from the db console, but the system can not boot.

  • TrueOS 17.12: display TrueOS Logo! …but freeze. kernel probe messeges are not displayed and the installer does not access to the DVD. :frowning:

Let’s try and narrow it down

head over to https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/snapshots/amd64/amd64/ISO-IMAGES/12.0/ and grab the 12.0-CURRENT image (ny of them should do), and try to install.

If it fails as well, then a FreeBSD issue. If it installs, then it’s a TrueOS issue.

Just trying to narrow things down a bit

I tried the image of FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT-amd64-20180103-r327524-bootonly.
The DVD was boot and display the installation menu without problem.
but I think some PCs product of hp has sensitive anything. Maybe this problem is complex.

re-reading the thread.

Can you check the BIOS settings?

I’m at a loss.

Maybe check out GhostBSD http://ghostbsd.org/download and see. If you want the FreeBSD experience

TrueOS was installed to hp Elite 8300 SFF !

TrueOS 2017-3-31: boot and finish the installation, but kernel panic after select “Reboot” in the installation menu. Then reboot from the db console, but the system can not boot.

The above was the case of upgrade installation from PC-BSD.
This time, I tried clean installation TrueOS 2017-3-31.
kernel panic in finish of installation, however installed TrueOS was boot !
And the version was became to 17.12 after run “pc-updatemanager pkgupdate”.
(I wrote this message on TrueOS)

Thank you.
