Apologies if this is the wrong way to approach the FreeBSD community wisdom: I 
am new here, please forgive. I am unable to boot/install 
FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img (dated 2017-July-21) on a brand-new HPE 
MicroServer Gen10 containing an AMD Opteron X3421. Boot hangs very early in the 
process. I have described the issue, and all remedies that I have tried, in 
detail on the forum (https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/61936/) and I have 
logged a bugzilla bug [221350]. It has been suggested to me that FreeBSD might 
not yet support this new AMD processor, or that it has issues with the chipset. 
As this is equipment from a major vendor, I wonder if it is likely that it 
would be supported at some stage in the *near* future.

Although I am somewhat new to FreeBSD, I have 30+ years of dev/OS/crypto/AI 
experience (way back from System V) and I would be willing and hopefully able 
to help debug this issue if it is at all likely that I could get support for it 
from the FreeBSD developers.

May I politely ask if in your opinion this equipment is likely to be supported 
soon? If not, I will return it to the vendor and use something a little older. 
If this is the wrong place to ask, please kindly direct me to the correct 
mailing list.

I suggest you to test booting with fresh image of CURRENT (12.0).
You can find it on ftp.freebsd.org /pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/amd64/amd64/ISO-IMAGES/12.0

Or you can try to boot some older ISO like 10.3. I remember some regression years ago with booting problem on newer version.
