The script runs fine, but the resulting USB drive won't boot. It hangs on
Feb 25 19:27:50 kernel: atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> port 0x60,0x64 irq 1 on acpi0
every time. I tried different systems as well. There is no error, it just hangs. Any idea what this is about? I did a web search but could fine anything describing this kind of hang.

Subject: USB INSTALL SCRIPTS
the scripts are at:
install these scripts on /root
formats the disk (or usb stick) at da0,da1...) make a bsdlabel on it
and using the baselist file, copies the running system files into the
it will work on FreeBSD versions greater 7.0
this way the usb is bootable, have a filesystem on it.
the same root password...
you can fix the files /etc/rc.conf, /boot/loader.conf in the usb
order for it to boot from your kernel.
remeber to check for an "a" partition on your usb stick
the script needs to have access to install bash (pkg_add -r bash) so it
needs internet of a package repository with bash in it.
Once boot from your usb stick, you can do the same procedure to
transport the running system to another disk
if you intend to make a zfs running filesytem on the target disk (hd)
make the disklabel (bsdlabel) this way
a: 1gb 16 unused
b: 4gb * swap
d: * * unused
a partition 1gb at offset 16
b swap partition 4gb after partion A
d: the rest of the disk (this will hold the zpool).
the makebootdisk will install a running system on A (about 300mb...)
is a script that, when boot from the hd created with makebootdisk
moves the running system (booted from "a" partition) to the the zfspool
created, in the "d" partition mentioned above..
it edits the loader.conf in order to boot on zfs.. in order to boot
After that, you are running on ZFS...
