Boot Error

I am having a strange problem with bootup on FreeBSD-12-amd64.
I have installed on a disk, and replicated the setup on a second disk. One
disk boots normally. The second disk fails to boot with something that
seems related to my Display, which is connected via DisplayPort and set to

Loading kernel....
/boot/kernel/kernel text=0x1678a68 data=0x1cd288+0x768b40

masks            0x00ff0000, 0x0000ff00, 0x000000ff, 0xff000000
ExitBootServices error 2

I am stuck with this error when I boot one disk (1TB disk) and not the
other (320GB).
I installed everything correctly on the 1TB disk, just like the 320GB.

What does my screen resolution have to do with this?;)
