Without the QEMU command line and a link to the FreeBSD .iso that's
rather hard... "above 32-bit boundary" sounds like ppc64, but the
PowerPC,750 (G3) is 32-bit only. Could be some QEMU guest vs. host
bitness issue, or just the bootloader going haywire due to bugs in
Last time I poked at OpenBIOS/ppc I noticed that ofmem's claim wasn't
working properly, which caused the Haiku bootloader to lock up.
