Installer fails to boot on Macbook Pro
|Reported by:||nealie||Owned by:||kris|
The installer from PCBSD10.0-RELEASE-p1-12-23-2013-x64-DVD-USB.iso fails to boot on a Macbook Pro (2007). This system already runs 9.2 happily, so this appears to be a regression.
Two bootable partitions are found on the boot disc:
- Windows (Which is what the Mac calls anything not Mac)
- EFI Boot
Booting the EFI Boot partition results in Grub executing, which then reports:
error: no suitable video mode found.
A text menu is then displayed, but regardless of what option is selected (Graphical Install, Graphical Install (VESA mode) or Text Install),
Selecting any option results in a reboot after a short delay.
Selecting the "Windows" partition to boot results in the following message:
1. 2. Select CD-ROM Boot Type :
The system then appears to be frozen.
