This is not something new or unexpected. Windows are Linux run happily 
on a lot of garbage grade hardware. But FreeBSD is very fussy about 
hardware. Thats the reason why a Linux box CAN create strange situations 
due to hardware. But a FreeBSD box would not even be ready to boot up if 
it does not find everything in tiptop condition.
