Description

on this page http://doc.freenas.org/9.3/freenas_install.html
under paragraph 2.2.2 On OSX

you specify that one should use:
dd if=FreeNAS-9.3-RELEASE-x64.iso of=/dev/disk1 bs=64k

this is incredibly slow because OSX uses some buffering on top of this block devices.
you get a 10x increase by using the
/dev/rdisk1 device instead.
