I encountered a problem when i create installation flash drives
10.1-RELEASE and 10.2-RELEASE i386 architecture. I used dd and
win32diskimager, with the same result - a created flash drives can not boot.

On a netbook and a workstation with Intel Atom x86-64 loading going on, but
then i see are reports of a problems with drive geometry, problem with
filesystem, and the installer does not start. On an industrial computer
with Intel Pentium M, system halted on a BIOS POST-screen, if the flash
drive insert in USB port.

I try to use different flash drives, but the result is the same.

I found this problem only with memstick and mini-memstick images
10.1-RELEASE and 10.2-RELEASE, i386 architecture. Releases amd64, and old
i386 (8.4, 9.3) are recorded and are installed correctly.
