Was this a sudden reboot, I.E. the GUI didn't display an error message first, rather it just shutdown suddenly?

If so, can you re-test by doing this:

Start upgrade again, and right after starting hit "ctrl-alt-f1" to go to console.

Watch the screen here, and see if a "kernel panic" message shows up, if it does, you should be able to hit "space" to stop the reboot, and then report back the specific message / reason why it occurred.

The reboot occured suddenly without prior error message. Tried with DVD, same crash.
Did then a "bsdlabel -BW ad1s2 auto" before restoring the system and now I am unable to reproduce the crash.
Guess we have to close this one.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Yea, that sounds like a kernel panic then or something of the sort. If you can't reproduce we'll have to mark it up to a quirk, but if you can have it happen consistently please re-open, or better yet start a new PR with FreeBSD:
