I'm not certain, but a BIOS update alone might fix it, if newer than what shipped with 6.3. IIRC the heap full error happens when the bootloader attempts to load a fairly large update into memory, and fails.

Upgrading to a -current snapshot would fix it, but I posted some steps if you would like to try to resolve it on 6.3.

Now, you should see the normal boot process, bypassing the heap full error. If so, login as root and then pkg_delete intel-firmware.

Hmm, if you have the USB install media handy, can you give this a try? Boot from USB. At the "boot>" prompt, load the /bsd kernel from the internal storage on your laptop. Depends on BIOS ordering, try `hd1a` you see the installer: boot> boot hd0a:/bsd

I believe the workaround was to move the intel microcode out of the way in /etc/firmware, it's a bit tricky as it's the bootloader.

This is the boot loader running out of heap space, i.e: it cannot some allocate memory. There was an issue with the initial microcode update mechanism for certain Intel CPUs. This was disabled (and later fixed) in -current.

I hate to beat the same old drum, but any support would really help me out immensely. I've been living month to month. Many heartfelt thanks to those who have setup recurring donations! 😊

Great! ☺️ If you can, please report this to bugs@. I believe other people have noticed similar issues with i386.

This machine is new enough to be running OpenBSD/amd64 (64-bit), can you try reinstalling that instead of i386? From a glance though, it appears to be drm related.

I wonder if it was intentional for unveil(2) to be an anagram for unevil(2)? 🤔

Sorry! I'm not a part of the foundation, just a developer & user. You should contact them directly, if you'd like to make a suggestion. I believe there to be a contact email on the website, or might know.
