With NAND flash based SSD this became obsolete - so, please don't be bothered about that. - From my (non-expert) point of view, you UEFI variables look "normal" (according to what I see on my boxes at home), but I was wondering about the "aged" firmware of you mainboard. Checking out at ASUS' website/support, they claim they have a more recent firmare from 2018! This would be on par with the Spectre/Meltdown mitigation promises made by most valuable/reliable mainboard vendors and Intel: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/B85ME/HelpDesk_BIOS/ Version 3602 2018/05/25 7.29 MByte B85M-E BIOS 3602 Since dmidecode reports on my ASRock crap mainboard also BIOS Revision: 4.6 I guess this one is fake or some "default" from the dmidecode program not identifying the correct revision - or it's another semantic not known to me. But my dmidecode looks like this, with the latest BETA ASrock provides for this long time ago discontinued Z77 Pro4-board: [...] # dmidecode 3.1 # SMBIOS entry point at 0x000f04c0 Found SMBIOS entry point in EFI, reading table from /dev/mem. SMBIOS 2.7 present. 26 structures occupying 1523 bytes. Table at 0x000EE7F0. Handle 0x0000, DMI type 0, 24 bytes BIOS Information Vendor: American Megatrends Inc. Version: P2.00 Release Date: 03/13/2018 Address: 0xF0000 Runtime Size: 64 kB ROM Size: 8192 kB Characteristics: PCI is supported BIOS is upgradeable BIOS shadowing is allowed Boot from CD is supported Selectable boot is supported BIOS ROM is socketed EDD is supported 5.25"/1.2 MB floppy services are supported (int 13h) 3.5"/720 kB floppy services are supported (int 13h) 3.5"/2.88 MB floppy services are supported (int 13h) Print screen service is supported (int 5h) 8042 keyboard services are supported (int 9h) Serial services are supported (int 14h) Printer services are supported (int 17h) ACPI is supported USB legacy is supported BIOS boot specification is supported Targeted content distribution is supported UEFI is supported BIOS Revision: 4.6 [...] Watch out the Version: P2.00 entry, which is indeed the version number of the firmware. So, in your case, the firmware is also a bit outdated, from 2014. I'd update the firmware prior to any further action if there are no obligations from hardware incompatibilities so far to meet the neccessity of lates Intel/AMD microcode updates and/or other UEFI vulnerabilities of which I have no active memories about, but they hit me 2015/2016 on our servers. There is no guarantee that the firmware update will salvage your problem, but that might be worth a shot. Also, ASUS mention to have solved performance issues with the latest firmware, please consider consulting the description of the latest firmware release. As the next step, as from my "naive" point of view, I would perform the steps recommended to me by FreeBSD's developers to set the UEFI variables again: Boot in UEFI mode from the USB flash device Logon as root mount -uw / kldload efirt mount -t msdosfs /dev/ada0p1 /mnt efibootmgr -c -l /mnt/efi/boot/BOOTx64.efi -L FreeBSD efibootmgr -v Look for the "Boot000X" entry labeled with "FreeBSD", take the number portion of the that Boot000X variable (000X) and perform efibootmgr -a 000X efibootmgr -n 000X (this one is "extra" and can be ommited, it means "next boot", see manpage efibootmgr(8)) and check again with efibootmgr -v The "maneuver" above is only in case the settings of UEFI variables has gone rogue.
