Success - sort of

I threw an old hdd in the computer, and during the install, I gave Ghost the entire disc (so no individual partitioning). Installed like a champ. Of course, I do not know if it installed because I used a hdd this time, or because I gave it the entire disc.

Now to get the display working correctly

Attempted to install the latest dev (10.25). Many thanks for the KDE version!
However, things did not go well:

For the Mate version, it booted up, but failed during the install:
udo gbi
diskinfo: da0: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
diskinfo: da0: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
diskinfo: da0: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
diskinfo: da0: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
diskinfo: da1: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
diskinfo: da1: ioctl(DIOCGMEDIASIZE) failed, probably not a disk.
