Description

I can't get OpenIndiana (nor Tribblix) to boot from most recent images, either from direct installation or upgrades from older images--in either case, the machine goes straight to a "BTX Halted" message. (I mention Tribblix only to suggest the possibility that it may be an underlying issue with illumos-gate, rather than OI-specific.) On the other hand, I can install and then OI and Tribblix from 2018.10 and m.20 (circa 2017).

The machine in question is a Compaq/HP Presario CQ56, and I assume it's running UEFI at boot. While I've seen messaging regarding illumos-gate not having UEFI support, the fact that I'm able to install and run 2018.10 and m.20 leads me to think there's another issue causing the problem.

Thank you in advance for your time and attention, and for all of the fantastic work you do on this project.

Cheers,
James

PS: In the "Target version" I was unable to see 2020.04, so I selected 2020.10 instead.
