Thanks for making GhostBSD. I want to move to BSD but slowly by starting with booting to a usb and then adding drivers and programs I like. I'm installing on a 32GB usb thumb drive. The CD boots up and works fine!!!
I installed from the CD to the USB drive. Failed first time. I forgot to write down the fail, though I think it said look at install something file in temp directory but when I looked nothing was there. I didn't use a password the first time. Maybe that was the problem. Do you have to have a password to install? I didn't use one as I wanted it to be easy to test. If it worked I would add one. So I installed again and it says it completed successfully??? The second time I installed I did use a pass but it was only one letter. Booting looked good until I believe X was starting. I did get two errors. The two errors were VERR file not found. Fail to start Vbox service.(I assume VERR=Vbox). And Trim flag on fs but disk does not support ...either trim or fs. Went by too fast not sure. (I'm guessing it pertains to trimming for solid state type disk???)I got a small round icon (maybe like a watch icon) like X booting then it crashed. Not sure it got to the point of X booting but I think so.
Is there a file written on the usb that I can look at with the active GhostCD to tell what went wrong? What steps should I take to troubleshoot?
The odd thing is the CD boots and works fine. I really like the interface and the set up.
It looks really good.
I installed "Use Entire Disk" with "bsd boot loader".
Is there a way that I can put a boot manager on a usb then boot to GhostBSD. I looked at various boot managers but they all seem to want to install to my hard drive. I don't want that as I have Truecrypt in that space an I'm afraid I won't be able to use it if it's overwritten.
