I've tried several times to have systems boot off of
I've been quite successful with 10.0 through 10.2 boot sticks.
I just downloaded FreeBSD-10.2-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img and did
the same stick, same actions to burn it and boot it, and it worked fine.
I think the official RELEASE of 10.3 amd64 memstick image is broken?
What I get is
LBA 1339168 Invalid Format
and then a boot prompt, that fails to boot further.
I seem to have good copies.
tritium:~> shasum -a 512 FreeBSD-10.3-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img
which matches the SHA512 of the announcement
even so, I've tried downloading it from 3 mirrors and got all the same copy.
I've tried multiple systems, multiple sticks and multiple machines to
burn it. For the life of me, I can not make 10.3 RELEASE amd64
memstick boot, but I can for 10.2, 10.1 & 10.0 with no problems on any of
the cobinations of any of the hardware I have.
Does anybody else have problems booting off this memory stick image?
