Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 4 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 10.3-RELEASE from update5.freebsd.org... done.

If you want to upgrade to version 11.1. there are more steps involved.

If you want the latest bleeding edge packages for 10. 3 follow this guide put together by ASX;

viewtopic.php?f=69&t=715

I'll get back to you about upgrading to 11.1

11.1 refuses to install on any of my AMD machines 2009-2013. It just kernel panic and reboots. OpenBSD installs trouble-free. This seems to be the most troublesome one yet. I will try a fourth DVD. I was looking forward to this release.

Try USB Flash Drive bootup first Re: Need help to install...

Prince are you able to use http://etcher.io, unetbootin, or rufus http://rufus.akeo.ie tools to write the file to a USB flash drive. At least after testing GhostBSD 11.1 booting up from and installing to a hard drive partition, you will have a spare USB Flash drive for your future needs.
Etcher.io supports Windows, MacOS, Linux operating systems.

Do you have any log files to share in a pastebin post? :>} :)

Thanks for the info, the issue was the media. The DVD was scratched. I have a new one. Now, the network won't enable. I will enable manually.

I have figure out why apps mysteriously close. Namely Firefox. I might reinstall then install Opera. I, predominantly, use Opera or Yandex Browser to network. Firefox does some questionable things and their security leaves much to be desired.
