    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.
