ESXi 6.5 UEFI boot stops at framebuffer info
Booting the pfSense-CE-2.4.1-RC-amd64-20171019-0852.iso on ESXi 6.5 using EFI bios, the boot stops after showing the EFI framebuffer information.
This also occurred using Safe Mode. I saw no additional messages using Verbose boot option.
I also get the same result if invoking the boot loader prompt and using:
The 2.4.0 release is running very well on this host.

The rest is the same as Rich post.

Yes, it appears to be resolved.
I tested on the same VM configuration (EFI bios), using pfSense-CE-2.4.3-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20171121-1226.iso, as well as, 2.4.2.-RELEASE.
Thanks very much for fixing it!
