I tried to Upgrade by FreeNas 11.1-U4 to 11.2-BETA2, but it failed miserably. After the Upgrade, the new Bootloader appeared but as soon as it tried to boot, it got stuck after loading the kernel (the bottom of the bootloader was still visible). My first thought was that something in the Upgrade Process might have caused the issue, so I tried to use a USB Drive with 11.2-Beta2 again, but that failed at the same bootstage as the normal boot. So something is not working well with the kernel and my computer. Enabling Verbose mode didn't show anything more than normal mode.

How can I further trace this issue down?

To give some more Information: The last message I see is

I am running (or trying to run ;) ) it on a HP Compaq 8200 Elite which has an Intel I3 Processor.

Reboot back into U4, create a debug (System -> Advanced -> Save debug), and attach it to this ticket.

This bug is still here also with the final Release 11.2 stable.
All worked well until the bootloader was Grub. Now with the freeBSD bootloader, stuck on the same point of the original bug report.
HP compaq 8200 CMT with I7 and not I3. Latest Bios.

what can i try ?

Hi Dru,

reinstalled 11.1U6, restored the config, sent the debug report as per your request.
I wait for your answer

NB: i would to say that from 11.1U6 thru the 11.2RC2 doing the "in place" upgrade from the web interface, the system started well ... after the upgrade to the 11.2 STABLE the system does not boot anymore. Maybe that this info can help ...

thannk for your support

Hi, I'm having the same problem with my system, I think it's perhaps to do with the motherboard. I have a Asus P8H67M Evo. The problem has been there since FreeNAS 11.2-Beta2, and verified still present in release FreeNAS 11.2-U1.

The bootup hangs with the final message:

Start @ 0xffffffff80322000 ...
EFI framebuffer information:
addr, size 0xe0000000, 0x3ff0000
dimensions 800 x 600
stride 800
masks 0x00ff0000, 0x0000ff00, 0x000000ff, 0xff000000

I'm booted via EFI. Any other information I can help with?
