Hi to all! Sorry for my bad English...

Intel NUC7PJYH2 BIOS Upgrade to 0058 causes FreeBSD boot failure

Intel BOXNUC7PJYH2 Version #: J67992-404, Date of Manufacture: 22 May 2020.

With previous BIOS 0057 all OK with Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD and Windows. After upgrading the BIOS by F7 to version 0058 and F9 - Load defaults and configure Bios (with Linux or Windows boot profile and disable Secure Boot), Windows 10 installer is loading successfully from USB stick, but Linux and Unix-like (FreeBSD and NetBSD) are not loaded.

Linux Mint 20.1 Xfce edition -> blank screen when loading and system stops
FreeBSD 12.2 Screenshot -> https://yadi.sk/i/OvWKz7XfLH_EGA
NetBSD 9.1_STABLE Screenshot -> https://yadi.sk/i/-uSPJoVtqTr0gA

Due to the CPU microcode update in BIOS version 0058, you can’t downgrade to version 0057 or earlier.

Probably this is a problem with ACPI BIOS settings for Linux and Unix-like OSes.

Attention! Due to the CPU microcode update and a problem with ACPI BIOS settings for Linux and Unix-like OSes, updating the BIOS on Intel systems is not recommended, this can turn the system into a brick for Unix-like OSes.
