I'm afraid I can't supply them as the (GhostBSD) boot process just dies - dead machine - no activity whatsoever - can't get to a VT.

I have just downloaded a fresh copy of 4.0 RC1 .img 64 & 32 bit - & am posting this from the 64 bit live on my Acer Aspire One 722, which is AMD & Radion graphics, using an Atheros wifi card. :D

Edit: Firefox keeps on crashing!

As we are going to have a lot of rain tomorrow, I will see if it will boot on my Intel graphics in the morning. ;)

Thought I might as well try the 32 bit RC1 on the AAO722, this is from it. 8-)

Posting this from my HP G62 laptop, using 32 bit .img live.
Looking good, I have to start/restart the wifi manager 3 times to get connected.
So far Firefox has not crashed,

:D
Going to shutdown & try the 64 bit .img live next.

Posting from 64 bit .img live, on my HP G62 laptop, looking good & very promising. :)
N.B. Not keen on the startup sound, it goes on for a bit too long. ;)
Will now see what happens if I try to install it. :P

GhostBSD4.0-RC1-amd64 now running on my HP-G62 laptop. :D :P

It took some doing but I have finally got it installed, wifi configured, Firefox running, & me posting this. ;)

This was the 8th installation attempt, but I have to say that it looks like FreeBSD does not like to be installed from a secondary USB socket.
Trying to install from either 32bit or 64bit .img kept on crashing, tried each 3 times, so I tried to install FreeBSD 10.0 32bit, & found that it was having problems with CAM losing my USB install pendrive. That led me to try a different USB socket with the 64bit GhostBSD pendrive, which led to success. :D
(Under Linux, I have no problems installing from the USB socket that I was using, so I am presuming it is a BSD problem.)

So, if anyone else is having problems trying to install it, try your primary USB socket. :P

N.B. One thing I think that will need to be addressed is to allow for SSD drives - no swap partition & noatime needs to be added to fstab entries - to save on excessive writes to disk.

Having installed it to my HP-G62 laptop, renewed the pkg database, (pkg update -f), I have been through the menus and found the following:-

1) Menu > Accessories > SpiderOak & Menu > Internet > SpiderOak - does nothing, there is no manpage & nothing happens if tried from a terminal.
2) Menu > Accessories > Take Screenshot - Screenshots & Selected Area are being saved to the Desktop only, & Grab Current Window just crashes.
3) Xfburn - No Devices Found - my DVD-RW is normally found & used.
4) Cheese - No Devices Found - This is likely a driver issue.
