Assuming the base and kernel is left untouched (from FreeBSD), it's likely you will have problems with PC-BSD... The 7.x series has an issue with Apple USB keyboards (on macbooks at least) and 8.0, 8.1-RC2 as well as 9.0-CURRENT will not boot; failing on an ACPI error (disabling ACPI at the loader presents a different boot problem).

I'm still waiting for a realistic solution on http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=12289&page=1 if you'd like to be kept up-to-date on the issue.

(I have a macbook 6,1)

Hi bombuzal,

good to know. I will check if the issue with the installer will also appear on a MB2,2.

Bye brejoc

I suggest you to try with some FreeBSD livecd [which is quite hard to spot these days. It is actually easier to spot OpenBSD livecd, which is quite extraordinary ;) ].
My bet would be Frenzy of mfs_bsd.
Wish you luck!
