I was testing Xen Dom0 last friday, and I too have a geli encrypted root, but I my case I do see the prompt (it does get a bit hidden by USB device detection, something I've reported before and IIRC a solution is in the works).
I do end up with just a blank square in the top... I've searched a bit and someone as reported the same issue and some patch (to xen-kernel I believe) were made to the git repo, I had no time to rebuild with the git version though, but I might try again next week (and who knows maybe the patches are merged to the port). In any case I do use a geli encrypted root and I get the passphrase prompt, I'm running: FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #9 r281243FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #9 r281243 Also if important: pkg info |grep xen xen-4.5.0 Xen Hyvervisor meta port xen-kernel-4.5.0 Hypervisor using a microkernel design xen-tools-4.5.0_1 Xen management tool, based on LibXenlight Melhores Cumprimentos // Best Regards ----------------------------------------------- *Miguel Clara* *IT - Sys Admin & Developer* *E-mail: *miguelmcl...@gmail.com www.linkedin.com/in/miguelmclara/ On Sun, Apr 12, 2015 at 5:56 PM, Hannes Mehnert <han...@mehnert.org> wrote: > Hi, > > I am able to boot FreeBSD dom0 (using r281439) on my Lenovo X220 [no > serial port :/].
