I want to create a LiveCD for Gentoo-FreeBSD. I'm using a standard /boot directory and boot0 for it. I've created a .img file from the root that I want to use. I create ISOs using mkisofs and use cdboot in /boot as the bootloader. However, I have not gotten a single ISO that I've generated to work. They all get stuck at loading the acpi module or after the FreeBSD menu, if acpi is disabled. I suspect that it can't mount the .img to use as the root.

So, how can I configure the bootloader to mount the .img and proceed with the boot?

The structure of the CD is currently:
/boot
livecd_root.img (ufs applied)

Actually, I'm not burning. I'm creating an iso in my Gentoo-FreeBSD virtual machine in qemu+kvm using mkisofs. Then, I just use scp and ssh to bring it back to the host, and then I test it in qemu.

I had some problems with FreeSBIE. Try using RW media to burn the iso on it and boot it. Sometimes emulation is not so perfect. It happened to me.

Try qemu without kvm. I saw kvm fail in different cases where pure qemu did the job.
