I have installed rEFInd booting Win-10 and FreeBSD 11.1. Booting works fine, I 
have xfce and wireless working. 'shutdown -r' and ctrl-alt-del go through the 
shutdown process and (I think) the system halts. I think this is whats happening 
from the console output and trying to follow the code. It seems to me that 
shutdown goes through the process sending a shutdown to init. init finally 
invokes the EFI boot. If that is correct, then in my install init is going to 
the wrong partition. After blanking the screen the system halts. A click on the 
power button completes shutdown. Another click the boots. 'shutdown -p' works.

If anyone has this working I would like to compare setups. I am not using zfs, 
but I do not see how that matters. Thanks for any help.
