#640: cannot boot usb-bootonly image
 Reporter:  empathica             |      Owner:  kris
     Type:  System Defect         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major                 |  Milestone:
Component:  Installer             |    Version:  9.0-RELEASE
 Keywords:  usb image won't boot  |
 I am trying to install PCBSD on my lenovo ideapad y570 using the 9.0
 -release-usb-bootonly image, and it refuses to boot properly, telling me
 that I should look at my xorg.conf in regular mode, and not giving any
 information in vesa mode. I think it may be due to my nvidia graphics
 driver, but it is not clear how to edit any files when the error presents

 I have tried using the more recent 9.1 RC1 image in hopes that the
 issue has been fixed and I need only wait for 9.1, but that gave me a
 mount prompt, where I must type in something along the lines
 ufs:/dev/ada2s1 in order to boot. when I typed the name of the image
 containing the pcbsd image, it gave me an error 19

 on a much smaller note, the 4 gigabyte usb images don't quite fit on my 4
 gigabyte flashdrives :(
