I used the image, put it on a stick, and set the BIOS to boot uefi-only or gpt-only and it never booted ? It's early sunday morning, it was a long week, so maybe I just missed something I'm supposed to do ? BIOS is 1.39. -- p...@opsec.eu +49 171 3101372 5 years to go ! _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
