This is more than annoying! The screen show simply >> FreeBSD EFI boot block Loader path: /boot/loader.efi and nothing happens forever. Usually, the loader/console shows up. This time the system gets stuck as I reported earlier. I can not afford another two days of installing the laptop again. How can I get rid of this immature EFI and run the system in the traditional way? It seems two immature systems meet each other, vt() and EFI and this ends up in a desaster. What is the fallback procedure? How to save the system and circumvent this problem? Is there a way to interrupt the boot process and drop out into some kind of emergency screen/console? BTW, I temporarily fixed this issu by copying the USB drive image's loader.efi into boot. This seems to be a bug in the compiler/compiling loader.efi.
