Has anyone installed FreeBSD 11.x on an IPC3?

I gave it a go last night with 11.1-RELEASE, and the IPC3's BIOS couldn't see the efi boot partition on the USB installation media.

Are there any tricks or settings I'd need in the BIOS to make it boot? Has anyone else installed 10.x or 11.x on these boxes?

We're checking on that, and hope to return with answers in a timely manner.

We have succesfully installed FreeBSD 11.1 on the IPC3.
regarding the functionality that would be a different question, but DMESG shows components are well recognized.

The setup procedure was fairly easy, preparing a USB key with Win32DiskImager as suggested on the FreeBSD installation guide and booting from F7 (one time boot menu) and running the installation procedure.

Alright, we tested further functionality of the FreeBSD OS, and everything seems to respond good, as well as Ethernet connectivity.
