Re: Installing GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive: can't boot

Ufff. This looks complicated... I may need some more detailed help here. Anyhow I find curious that if I try to boot with my 16GB USB drive, the drive itself is not even recognized as presented by the BIOS (after pressing F12 during boot procedure), in contrast to what happens to the Live image. Is ...

Re: Installing GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive: can't boot

Upon booting, I use the desktop app ghostbsd installer to make a bootable 16GB USB drive (new device). To do that ...

Re: Installing GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive: can't boot

Hello Eric Unfortunately I do not have other USB drives available with such equivalent capacity. I do only have available 4 GB one. I do find the situation rather strange. Is there any command line tool where I could do the same installation exercise and further control/report the procedure? Thank f...

Installing GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive: can't boot

booting 3.1 img: no screens found

Hi.
An Fatal Xorg server error is detected at booting: "no screens found"
I have a NVIDIA GTS 450.
Any possible tweeks, as the driver apparent ignores this "unsupported device". ( message listed in /var/log/Xorg.0.log)
Should I wait for a future release?
Thank you.
