### Background

(2020-12-04) observed that a previously available HP ProBook 440 G7: 

* did boot from installers for OmniOS community edition

  – omniosce-r151036.iso 
  – omniosce-r151036.usb-dd

* did _not_ boot from installers for FreeBSD 12.2 or 13.0-CURRENT

* did _not_ boot from the installer for GhostBSD.

Bug 244906 became a duplicate of later bug 251866:
