Just to report that I tried with latest images (Sept 2nd) and same
behaviour: live-mode works, sets correct (max resolution) on my netbook,
while normal/ACPI-enabled/VESA modes all fails similar to previos

I've tried with my desktop machine (HD4670 card) and same thing, so I
wonder if this set of images did receive some video fixes at all?

As soon as move mouse pointer, the connection to X server is lost and/or
installer crashes.

Any advice or I should simply give up my attempt to use PC-BSD at this
time although being puzzled that live-mode is works?


One who works in devotion, who is a pure soul, and who controls 
his mind and senses is dear to everyone, and everyone is dear to 
him. Though always working, such a man is never entangled.
