At the moment, there is no OS on this PC. When I try to install FreeBSD,
this is the only output which is displayed and everything hangs [1].

I took a picture of system information from BIOS [2]. Please tell me if
there is any other information from the hardware which I should provide.

I downloaded FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT-amd64-20170814-r322508-disc1.iso from
here [3]. I will try the latest version, which is
FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT-amd64-20170925-r323985-disc1.iso and also, I will try
FreeBSD 11.1-Release.
