First, Merry Christmas to you all (a little late, but I wasn't at home the last days), hope Santa brought something nice to you :smiley
Talking about .img and .iso files. Is there some significant difference between the two that may affect the installation and that installation of .iso may work better? I haven't tried the .iso yet, but it could be interesting to hear what you think before I try it.
Then another thing that has puzzled me for a while, probably easy for you guys, but I don't understand it.
I've tried on several occasions to write an installation file to an USB pin, but it fails every time. I guess I'm doing something wrong. This is the command I used that should do it according to both the TrueOS and PC-BSD handbook, and the reply I get from the system.
root@PC-BSD:~ # dd if=TrueOS-Desktop-2016-12-15-x64-DVD.iso of=/dev/da0 bs=1M
dd: TrueOS-Desktop-2016-12-15-x64-DVD.iso: No such file or directory
I have a secondary internal HDD for storage and almost nothing stored on the primary SSD where the system is. But I thought to make it easier for the system to find the file, I placed a copy of it in the Home directory. But it doesn't help.
Since I haven't been able to solve this, I've used my Windows XP machine to write to the USB using the "Win32DiskImager-0.9.5-binary" program.
But like I said, I guess I'm doing something wrong in the command line. Someone please direct me how to do it right. As it's now I have to move files back and force between the computers with a USB pin since the Windows machine it not connected to the Internet.
