https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254513 --- Comment #34 from Jamie Landeg-Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to Dennis Noordsij from comment #32) > Regarding ready installation images; I usually boot the rescue mode and install manually by creating partitions and untarring the base system, so perhaps Hetzner/Vultr provide installation media where virtio_random is already pre-blacklisted). The vultr install does indeed disable virtio-random, but that wasn't the only issue: I created my own ISO without virtio-random , and whilst it stopped the boot hang, it still caused problems (hanging on reboot being one) I talked with the vultr guy and he confirmed - he had to disable virtio-random AND change the KVM profile to boot : > "2021-07-14 16:37:43 > We've found that v12 and older of FreeBSD do not actually support q35 - so when any version of FreeBSD is selected from our control panel we default that back to i440fx. We do have a few customers using the iso-over-image trick, and we didn't want to break them if they're just selecting the default version (13) and then trying to install 12 over it. > We have not done extensive testing of FreeBSD on q35 yet - it seems like support for this is very new, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were still issues causing it to hang at reboot. >Brian, Vultr.com Support " -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
