Hi,

Boot process fails. there are a few errors:

Failed to start vboxserver
KVM_genenvv failed
native console 1 activation: device not configured

and I get a command prompt.
If I try startx I get no screens found.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

No, it will help if you give full detail of you laptop and the release.

Hello, installing on a Mac is always hard, Macs were made to use Mac software but I´ve seen some Macs running FreeBSD.

Likely a graphics problem,
Advanced 3D graphics featuring NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 880M or Quadro FX 1800M graphics engine with 1GB of dedicated graphics memory for demanding tasks such as video editing, animation and computer-aided design (CAD) manipulation
