FreeBSD Boot Menu
Once the system boots from the installation media, a menu similar to the following will be displayed:
FreeBSD Boot Loader Menu
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-newboot-loader-menu' md5='__failed__'
By default, the menu will wait ten seconds for user input before booting into the FreeBSD installer or, if FreeBSD is already installed, before booting into FreeBSD. To pause the boot timer in order to review the selections, press <keycap>Space</keycap>. To select an option, press its highlighted number, character, or key. The following options are available.
<literal>Boot Multi User</literal>: This will continue the FreeBSD boot process. If the boot timer has been paused, press <keycap>1</keycap>, upper- or lower-case <keycap>B</keycap>, or <keycap>Enter</keycap>.
<literal>Boot Single User</literal>: This mode can be used to fix an existing FreeBSD installation as described in <xref linkend="boot-singleuser"/>. Press <keycap>2</keycap> or the upper- or lower-case <keycap>S</keycap> to enter this mode.
<literal>Escape to loader prompt</literal>: This will boot the system into a repair prompt that contains a limited number of low-level commands. This prompt is described in <xref linkend="boot-loader"/>. Press <keycap>3</keycap> or <keycap>Esc</keycap> to boot into this prompt.
<literal>Reboot</literal>: Reboots the system.
<literal>Kernel</literal>: Loads a different kernel.
<literal>Configure Boot Options</literal>: Opens the menu shown in, and described under, <xref linkend="bsdinstall-boot-options-menu"/>.
FreeBSD Boot Options Menu
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-boot-options-menu' md5='__failed__'
The boot options menu is divided into two sections. The first section can be used to either return to the main boot menu or to reset any toggled options back to their defaults.
The next section is used to toggle the available options to <literal>On</literal> or <literal>Off</literal> by pressing the option's highlighted number or character. The system will always boot using the settings for these options until they are modified. Several options can be toggled using this menu:
<literal>ACPI Support</literal>: If the system hangs during boot, try toggling this option to <literal>Off</literal>.
<literal>Safe Mode</literal>: If the system still hangs during boot even with <literal>ACPI Support</literal> set to <literal>Off</literal>, try setting this option to <literal>On</literal>.
<literal>Single User</literal>: Toggle this option to <literal>On</literal> to fix an existing FreeBSD installation as described in <xref linkend="boot-singleuser"/>. Once the problem is fixed, set it back to <literal>Off</literal>.
<literal>Verbose</literal>: Toggle this option to <literal>On</literal> to see more detailed messages during the boot process. This can be useful when troubleshooting a piece of hardware.
After making the needed selections, press <keycap>1</keycap> or <keycap>Backspace</keycap> to return to the main boot menu, then press <keycap>Enter</keycap> to continue booting into FreeBSD. A series of boot messages will appear as FreeBSD carries out its hardware device probes and loads the installation program. Once the boot is complete, the welcome menu shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-choose-mode"/> will be displayed.
Welcome Menu
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-choose-mode' md5='__failed__'
Press <keycap>Enter</keycap> to select the default of <guibutton>[ Install ]</guibutton> to enter the installer. The rest of this chapter describes how to use this installer. Otherwise, use the right or left arrows or the colorized letter to select the desired menu item. The <guibutton>[ Shell ]</guibutton> can be used to access a FreeBSD shell in order to use command line utilities to prepare the disks before installation. The <guibutton>[ Live CD ]</guibutton> option can be used to try out FreeBSD before installing it. The live version is described in <xref linkend="using-live-cd"/>.
To review the boot messages, including the hardware device probe, press the upper- or lower-case <keycap>S</keycap> and then <keycap>Enter</keycap> to access a shell. At the shell prompt, type <command>more /var/run/dmesg.boot</command> and use the space bar to scroll through the messages. When finished, type <command>exit</command> to return to the welcome menu.
Using <application>bsdinstall</application>
This section shows the order of the <application>bsdinstall</application> menus and the type of information that will be asked before the system is installed. Use the arrow keys to highlight a menu option, then <keycap>Space</keycap> to select or deselect that menu item. When finished, press <keycap>Enter</keycap> to save the selection and move onto the next screen.
Selecting the Keymap Menu
Before starting the process, <application>bsdinstall</application> will load the keymap files as show in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-keymap-loading"/>.
Keymap Loading
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-loading' md5='__failed__'
After the keymaps have been loaded <application>bsdinstall</application> displays the menu shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-keymap-10"/>. Use the up and down arrows to select the keymap that most closely represents the mapping of the keyboard attached to the system. Press <keycap>Enter</keycap> to save the selection.
