What program did you use to write the USB stick? Or are you mounting the image with IPMI?

When writing the image from Windows, I would use Win32diskimager. Other stuff makes assumptions that are usually wrong.

If you are mounting the image and connecting through IPMI, then do not choose Serial Enabled. Unless you have a serial terminal connected to the serial port.

Rufus does not work either, unless you choose dd mode.

If you use IPMI, you are not using serial. If you tell it that there is a serial console, it might wait for that console to respond.

I'm looking into it. Did you try it the way I suggested?

yes and used Rufus to create it worked fine - but i also added a monitor the install it - so far it works now for me - i just have to understand the system but this will be other question.
and thanks you check it about the documentation. but also the installation is about FreeNAS 11.1-RC3 and not FreeNAS-11.0-U4 but the Installed Guide is only readable if you finished installing it.
have a nice day

I find the tip in the latest installation http://doc.freenas.org/11/install.html#performing-the-installation about serial confusing: "The Serial Enabled option is useful on systems which do not have a keyboard or monitor, but are accessed through a serial port, Serial over LAN, or IPMI." To me, this tip suggests choosing "FreeNAS Installer (Serial Enabled)" if IPMI is being used. Perhaps the documentation should be altered to explicitly suggest choosing "FreeNAS Installer" in case of IPMI, if that's the recommended way of doing it.

Depends on the IPMI option. You can do Serial over LAN or graphical console on most implementations.

I also ran into the same issue.
I was trying to install FreeNAS 11.1-U5 on my Supermicro X11SSM-F motherboard, which has IPMI, so I figured I should choose "Serial Enabled" but at some point during the installation I got this "Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/md0.uzip [rw]..." error, as @vikozo6 reported.

It took me a while to figure out that by going with the default installer, the installation would go through.

The official documentation still recommends going with the Serial Enabled Installer.
