LiveCD with UEFI/BIOS Boot Support Note

#1

Post by JoseMR » 05 Sep 2018 14:25

Here is a test build of the Latest XigmaNAS-x64-11.2.0.4.5925 built with UEFI/BIOS boot support, any testing/feedback is much appreciated.

LiveCD UEFI/BIOS boot support has been added as of Rev 5958.

Notice:
Currently XigmaNAS UEFI feature use a custom compiled loader.efi/efiboot.img with increased staging area size, this may cause for some picky UEFI to refuse to boot properly, this is because current XigmaNAS mfsroot size is at 134.2MB as of this writing, this compatibility issues may improve in future FreeBSD EFI implementations and/or BIOS/Firmware releases for select hardware.

Additional info: FreeBSD Bugzilla Bug 219957

Regards
System: FreeBSD 12 RootOnZFS, MB: Supermicro X8SI6-F, Xeon X3450, 16GB DDR3 ECC RDIMMs.
