FreeBSD 11.0-RC1 boot prompt kernel load issue.

Thanks for the response.

It is UEFI boot. As such there is no stack dumped on the console during crash. System restarts from the FreeBSD boot prompt without any message on the console. Still I have a picture where monitor goes off during data load. PFA(sorry for the flash)

Are you using EFI or legacy boot?  Also, can you capture a screenshot of the crash messages?  If it is not EFI, we probably crashed in the BIOS routines used to read data from the USB drive.  It may be a BIOS bug (which isn't easily fixable), but we would need the register dump from the crash to figure anything out.
