iMac5,1(12年ほど前の機種)にFreeBSD 11.2(最新バージョン)の「i386 DVD」(CDだと止まる)を入れて起動してみたら、なんとインストーラが起動! さっそくそのまま成功例の多いzfsでbsdinstallまかせでバッと入れて再起動したら、iMacのブートローダに出現! やった!

# gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 ada0

Snow LeopardのインストールCDを入れてblessしてもダメ。

# bless –device /dev/ada0


# gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/boot1.efifat -i 1 ada0


loader promptでなんとかしてみようとしたけど、知識がボロカスになくて不可。ああ…また調べなきゃ…。


I write my issue in English with effort.

I tried to install with the i386 DVD of the newest FreeBSD 11.2 and it booted! (The installer stopped displaying “CD press any key” when I inserted i386 CD.)
Then I proceeded installing with the easy bsdinstall and installed zfs which many people succeeded with. After completeing install and entered below from the console of temporary Snow Leopard CD:

# bless –device /dev/disk0s1

I made it reboot, then the boot process appeared with the daemon head! Yatta!
But it freezed displaying “Booting…” so I rebooted with DVD and entered a line below:

# gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 ada0

After rebooting, iMac failed recognizing HDD UFS! Sad!
Quickly I rebooted and entered this line from FreeBSD console of DVD:

# gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/boot1.efifat -i 1 ada0

Then the daemon appeared again! and… freezed. Why!

Help me anyone…
