What do you mean? I do not understand! FreeBSD is supposed to read the CPUID and
therefore the capabilities as every other OS, too. But there may some 
circumstances why
FBSD won't. I do not know, that is the reason why I'm asking here.

I havn't ried so far, the box is in heavy use. I'd like to check with some live 
USB drive
versions and report later.

There is no option for that, I'm looking for several time for that right now. 
Even with
TPM enabled - which is considered to be necessary on several firmwares - there 
is no


As I said, even with the brand new firmware from January of this year (2017) 
there is no
change - the firmware prior to that showed the same non-existing AES-NI feature.
