So it is an empty file system. As I sait, a FAT32 file system
looks wrong for a FreeBSD boot medium anyway.

Probably remains of a boot loader.

To be expected. :-)

Yes, there are Linux distributions which do not support
specific graphic cards / chips out of the box. In most
cases, it's possible for a skilled admin to simply install
the required drivers. Alternatively, a different distribution
might already include that driver.

Maybe you're better off using Linux Mint? It's quite popular
and well maintained. However, withouth checking, I do not
know which desktop environment it comes with.

But it is nonsense. You're doing something you are not
supposed to do (like climbing through your window to
enter your house instead of using the door - it _does_
work, but using the proper key is probably easier). :-)

That is a distribution-specific Linux problem which you
shoule ask about in a forum or mailing list that deals with
that Linux distribution. All I can say (without further
diagnostics) it looks like some "automatic restart magic",
maybe related to systemd... but actually, I have no idea. :-)
