Description

Even it is reported on IRC, and bug fix landed before making available 20170502 ISO/usb images,
images are published with osnet-incorporation/illumos that is unbootable die to already-fixed illumos loader bug.
(https://www.illumos.org/issues/8119)
20170502 ISO's/images should be recompiled to include bootable images.
(confirmed bootable pkg:) .
I suppose all ACPI v1 only machines are affected and images are useless for installation for the large chunk of fine and supported 64-bit hardware.

We will do this with 2017.10, until then the recommended path is to grab older ISO, which is unfortunate. We will need more thorough testing of medias once released.

Media needs to be tested BEFORE released...
I asked to test media before 201704/05 is released and you didn't offer the chance to be tested before it was pushed for wide use, stating it is tested on VMWare.. Let's change that.
