We have the same issue on a DL580 G7. Install runs fine, but when it's
time for the first boot, the bootcode emits a single '-' (where usually
it would be "spinning" for a moment while loading), hangs for about two
seconds, and then reboots.
I've used the BETA3 bsdinstall on other (amd64) hardware with GPT and it
worked fine. Also, manually adding the GPT label, partitions and
bootcode using gpart, then rebooting, shows the exact same behaviour
(this was done using the BETA3 "Live CD").
I suspect it's something in the vicinity of "pmbr bootcode vs. newer
(BTW, not related to this issue: hw.memtest.tests=0 should be default.
The kernel on a system with 128 GB of RAM needs about two minutes (!)
before emitting a single line of output. At first we didn't know about
this test and thought there was a serious problem.)
Or at least there should be a message that the memtest is running...
