Well sure, but it's just a couple of messages earlier than these ones
with the same subject, so I'm wondering why you missed it?

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2014-September/261025.html

Use the [thread] link from there to see if you missed any others?

Sure; I used this to make a 10.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1-memstick.img which 
booted and installed fine, modulo the packages issue mentioned; after 
that I installed 9.2-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1-memstick.img on a Thinkpad X200,
including the DVD packages as 9.2-R still used the old pkg_add tools.

In case not obvious, you still need to dd the .img to the memstick :)

cheers, Ian
