I installed 4.7 on a machine last weekend. This machines main purpose is

Its handy to enable serial console access. Add -Dh to /boot.config

and in /etc/ttys

ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" vt100 on secure


And one more minor point, albeit potentially important.

If the machine won't have a keyboard attached and
will be administered remotely, turn off keyboard
warnings in the BIOS.

Can you tell I once wondered why a server never
came back after buildworld and 'shutdown -r now' ?
