please do not use unetbootin, use "dd" command:

from a bsd OS:
Code: Select all
dd  if=image.iso  of=/dev/daX bs=1m conv=sync


from linux:
Code: Select all
dd  if=image.is of=/dev/sdX bs=1M conv=sync

Do it with dd!
Writing the iso to a USB stick

On BSD

dd if=GhostBSD10.3-RELEASE-20160829-214135-mate-amd64.iso of=/dev/da0 bs=1m

On LInux

dd if=GhostBSD10.3-RELEASE-20160829-214135-mate-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdf bs=1M

On Mac

dd if=GhostBSD10.3-RELEASE-20160829-214135-mate-amd64.iso of=/dev/disk2 bs=1024

Hi Eric, ASX

I have to delay next attempts.
Got a phone call yesterday that my father is very ill, so i ll travel to my hometown (700km) today over weekend to look after him.
Will catch up next week.

Of course, free software works "as time allow". Do not worry, we can wait.
Best wishes to you and your father.

Hi there

back from Aachen but clueless after trying 3 times to dd the iso to stick and boot from it!
dd worked well it seems, but when stick hanged out and put into one of my netbooks, I only get the "GRUB" text and that s it...
what do i do wrong or what s missing? I have no experience with removable media and my last editing of grub.conf or any start script is "lightyears" away! ;-)

I do not own any netbook, but I've tested GhostBSD 10.3 on a eee pc 1015px, using a dd-ed USB stick, it worked smootly.

well: I used the "dd if=GhostBSD11.0-PREALPHA3-20161203-101455-mate-i386.iso of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M" command under linux as root, the copying went smoothly, it told me about xxxx packages in and out and then: "1798 datasets +1 in and out" and "1,9GB copied" and back to prompt!
Then I unhook the stick put it in a free USB slot, change from HDD boot to removable device boot in "boot priority" in BIOS and at start I get:
"GRUB" ..... and that s it!
no commands possible to add, no menue to choose from, just no reaction!
That s why I asked if I missed something to add prior to booting?

same reaction on my Asus eee, my Nokia netbook and my HP Pavilion dv6000

additional question:

putting GhostBSD 10.3 add. to Linux Mint as a dual boot:
Linux on 1st primary part. + swap part.
GhostBSD on 2nd primary part + 2. (BSD) swap = possible? (Asus eee with same HDD for both systems)
