@grahamperrin I tried that already (see post # 57) and it failed. So unless the zeroing of the harddrive makes some difference I guess the result will be the same
Or to use a quote from Einstein: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"
I saw somewhere, by searching the web, that there may be some hidden settings in BIOS, or if it needs to be updated, or replaced. One thing about GPT or MBR is that GPT seems to need UEFI to work, and it use to be graphical, but the Asus's BIOS looks like a traditional BIOS although Asus says it's a UEFI.
Yeah, about zeroing the harddrive. As far as I know new harddrives are zeroed when you buy them, aren't they? So I guess the result will be the same as when I tried to install TrueOS when the drive was brand new. OK, I haven't tried to install FreeBSD on a clean drive yet, but can that really make a difference?
Anyway, now I'll wait until I've been talking to Asus support next week and heard what they have to say about this.
I tried that - didn't work.
I also tried to install FreeBSD as UFS, but beside that the same thing happened again and the harddrive disappeared in BIOS, as far as I understand it won't work to install TrueOS on UFS.
Like I said, we'll see what Asus support says.
