I am running DragonFly 5.0.0-RELEASE on an Acer TravelMate Spin B (Intel N3450 @ 1.10 GHz) laptop.

When booting, it shows:

TSC invariant clock: 1094436275 Hz
lapic: TSC Deadline Mode: shift 0, frequency 1094436275 Hz
srat_probe: can't locate SRAT
Initialize MI interrupts
TSC testing synchronization ...

and then it loops/hangs forever. Any help appreciated.

Please post (or take a photo of) the output with a verbose boot ('v' from the loader menu).

As far as I can tell TSC synchronization gives no more output than just "TSC testing MP synchronization" if it succeeds.

verbose booting gives (the remaining lines that I can see):

Since commit, it successfully boots when

set hw.tsc_cputimer_force="-1"

is specified in /boot/loader.conf.
