    Hi,
    I have some issues with installing FreeBSD 12.1 (amd64) from the official ISO images into a Parallels VM. I tried all kinds of ISO images (dvd, cd for both x86 and amd64), but no matter which image I choose, it always stops with an error message from the boot loader.

    panic: zfree(0x7e4e9690,8224): wild pointer

    Does anyone else see this behavior and knows a way how to handle this issue? I also played around with other settings for the VM (e.g. switching hypervisors), but to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Christoph

    Hi,

    Set vm.bios.efi = 1 to the boot flag in the boot order settings.

    Just spent two days trying different ways to install pfSense, with no luck. Then tried just FreeBSD with no luck. Your post sorted it. Many thanks.
