How To: Install FreeNAS 8 to a USB Key
This is an easy platform independent method of installing FreeNAS 8 to a USB key, WITHOUT requiring an optical drive.
Have you looked at the documentation or Youtube videos? This is the exact method that is presented there.
I haven't watched the YouTube Videos, but this is nothing like what is in the documentation. The methods in the documentation require either an optical drive, or use different tools to write the image depending on this O/S.
