Hi all :) .

So as the title describes i have issues with booting the installer. The downloaded iso works in vbox so its probably not damaged. Verbose boot:

Currently i don't have any "normal" mini pc to get Freenas installed on so i resorted to this Wintel Box W8 Pro. Its not the fastest thing ever but it should be enough to start tinkering around with Freenas. I already confirmed that it can boot linux and done some testing and didnt seem to be unstable.

Im obviously a noob when it comes to freenas and bsd so i don't know where to start. Thanks in advance!

What are the hardware specs on that Box (CPU, RAM, drive controller, etc.)? Is the BIOS at its latest revision?
