I tried several 9.0 images. The usb-uefi version, the usb-bios version and the cdrom version. Same issue.
But, on the bios one, I got log messages. It turns out the issue is the same as http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=51716
I'm pretty sure the installer wants to know where the root device is
boot device: <unknown>
and expect that the user type the name of the device. But as far as I know the built in keyboard on this macbook pro is a usb 3 keyboard. And this is disabled while booting.... maybe...
I had the same thing when I tried to install OpenBsd.
Btw, FreeBsd doesn't have this issue.
So I can't obvisely don't plugin an external USB keyboard because USB is disabled??
Any Idea how I can workaround this issue, maybe providing a disk layout where the installer does not run into the interactive session. I could use the FreebSD live installer to prepare the disk.
