I have been trying to installed freenas8 onto an 8Gb usb stick and when it gets to the point to installed the file in the command prompt it exits. I have tried both i386 and amd64 with the same results with the iso image and the expanded full files. This is what I get every time, freenas.img was the iso amd64 file. Any help would be great. Thanks
