I am attempting to install FreeBSD-10.2-RELEASE-i386-memstick.img
on an old 32-bit x86 Dell Optiplex 210L. I get the following failure when attempting to install to the entire disk.
Writing partition tables....
Failed to mount filesystem
An installation step has aborted.
I know that GPT has done something because when I reboot it gives me "gptboot" errors about No /boot/loader /boot/kernel/kernel on 0:ad(0p2)
Here are a few lines from DMESG that describe the disk in question.
