    After replacing /usr/share/kvm/bios.bin with the version found in pve-qemu-kvm_1.3-10_amd64 I've successfully booted pfSense.

    Do you think we can use this as a temporary fix?

    (We con also keep both versions of bios.bin and add args: -bios /path/to/oldversion-bios.bin in the vm config)

    BTW, I also have to use qemu64 to make pfsense work, instead of kvm64.
    Is that normal?

    Had to do the same. To make it work I added the bios_old.bin file to /var/share/kvm and changed the vm.conf to:

    args: -bios /usr/share/kvm/bios_old.bin
    cpu: qemu64

    FreeBSD is working again!

    Is the new bios stable enough for other operating systems? Or can we expect other failures (BSOD/Kernel panics etc.)?

    Here pfSense-LiveCD-2.0.2-RELEASE-i386.iso boots fine with standard cpu (kvm64) and old bios workaround.

    we just uploaded a fix (new seabios) for the issue to our pvetest repository. if you do not want to switch to pvetest, you can download the package manually and install it with:

    Code:
    wget http://download.proxmox.com/debian/dists/squeeze/pvetest/binary-amd64/pve-qemu-kvm_1.4-7_amd64.deb
    
    dpkg -i pve-qemu-kvm_1.4-7_amd64.deb
    pls test and give feedback.

    post your pveversion -v - and you need to stop and start the VM.

    There appears to be two issues here...
    The BIOS issue with newer KVM versions, and an issue FreeBSD seems to have with certain processors.
    On my HP Microserver, FreeBSD (and by extension pfsense) has never worked under KVM unless i change the cpu type (eg to core2duo), whereas on several other boxes it did work until the fairly recent kvm update.
    The BIOS issue seems to be fixed with the latest KVM, although the other issue remains.
