            Bug ID: 195072
           Summary: 11.0-CURRENT mini-memstick.img doesn't boot
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: i386
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: info at juanmolina.eu

When the latest FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT-i386-20141113-r274463-mini-memstick.img is
transferred to an USB key with the official procedure (dd), the resulting
- does not get recognized by boot menus in three different computers I have
- gpart show [da0] output is null, the geom does not seem to exist;
- to my surprise, mount /dev/da0 /mnt works and I can browse the contents of
the stick.

On the other hand, the same procedure with the latest
FreeBSD-10.1-PRERELEASE-i386-20141026-r273706-mini-memstick.img works at least
in two of the three computers:
- it's recognized by boot menus, it boots without issues;
- gpart show [da0] outputs the expected information: BSD schema, slice, label.

I have repeated three times switching from one image to the other, downloading
them freshly and the issue is fully reproducible.

I'm on FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE installed on an old MSI MS-7142 (K8MM-V)
motherboard. The two other computers are an Intel Desktop Board DG41RQ (neither
of the images boot on this one) and a HP Compaq 6730b.
