[SOLVE]unable to boot AMD64bit from USB

Postby pedrito » Mon Sep 09, 2013 8:23 pm

Hi
I am excited to test this FreeBSD based distribution on my AMD 64bit system.
I have tried both iso and img files to build a bootable USBKEY, using "dd if=G*.img of=/dev/sdb1 sz=1M" on an unmounted FAT32 4GB USBkey.
In both situations after reseting the machine, the machine appears stall with a message "Loading Operating system" in the screen. The led in the USBKey doesn't stop to blinck, but the machine appears stalled.
As soon I remove the USBKey from the USB port the machine boosts on the default OS (Ubuntu).
Can you give any tips on how to circunvent this issue?
Thank you.
P

"dd if=G*.img of=/dev/sdb sz=1M && sync" ???

what is the option/operand "sz=", I don't see any "sz" in any dd man pages. Do you mean "bs", instead of "sz" ?

sz is size and I think sz should be bs.
