Freenas 64 bit is not working
Freenas 64 bit version is not working. After installing it on usb and booting from it, system is not starting. There is some error about data base. Its on latest version 18.104.22.168.
Please check this its frustrating. I downloaded file using different PC, diffrent internet connection, installed it on two different usb's. All the time I'm getting same error

This ticket isn't actionable unless you can provide more information.
Can you please post the error message you are receiving about the database and a summary of your system configuration?

That message doesn't have anything about the database, its a disk mount error (can't find the installation once the kernel boots). I can see the stick was detected as da0.
Looks like you used the USB stick for something else that used a GPT type partition table. FreeNAS is finding the backup table and thinks the USB stick is corrupted and won't mount it so it doesn't destroy something by accident. Can you try completely erasing the stick (zero over all the blocks or delete the GPT partition table) and install FreeNAS again? If you can boot a FreeBSD live CD or USB image, you can remove it by running:
gpart recover da1
gpart destroy -F da1
assuming da1 is the stick you are trying to install FreeNAS to.

The screen shot is something I see too with versions 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199. I attributed the failure to the XHCI driver problem mentioned somewhere. After power cycling once or twice I usually get past this. There is no information to get out of the machine when the failure occurs since there is no logging to disk nor can you type in any commands at the mountroot> prompt.
On another note I have tried 188.8.131.52 from a 8GB USB stick and it does not work on my setup. There's nothing in the log files to look at. Is there some way to get more log messages saved to disk?
