Hi, all

I'm trying to boot Levono Chroebook S330 [1]. I've made FreeBSD USB image in
accordance with [2] as follows :

# gpart destroy -F /dev/da0
da0 destroyed
# gpart create -s GPT da0
da0 created
# gpart add -b 1m -s 15m -t \!fe3a2a5d-4f32-41a7-b725-accc3285a309 da0
da0p1 added
# gpart add -b 17m -s 15m -t \!fe3a2a5d-4f32-41a7-b725-accc3285a309 da0
da0p2 added
# gpart add -t freebsd-ufs da0

# 

and then mark the FreeBSD USB device bootable :

# cgpt add -P 12 -T 5 -S 1 -i 1 /dev/sda
# reboot

confirmed partition 1 attributes changed to :

# cgpt show /dev/sda
...
Attr: priority=12 tries=5 successful=1
...
# shutdown -P now

and insert USB device and power the machine on and press CTRL+U at the "OS
verification is OFF" screen, but screen blackout and nothing has happened
;-(

How the machine go forth to boot with u-boot ?

Best regards
