It is not possible in legacy/BIOS mode, because the BIOS calls do not let you specify a sector size. However, you SHOULD be able to boot from the 4k device using UEFI. I am trying to debug a problem I am having with this on my new Mac, which has a 4k NVMe disk. -- Allan Jude _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
