I successfully built FreeBSD 10-HEAD from a USB-stick installation of 9.2-STABLE amd64 and 9.1-STABLE i386, respectively for amd64 and i386.

I was able to partition the new hard drive with gdisk, installed on the USB stick.

Src tree was on hard drive, so I did all the heavy work there.

I was at first not able to download the src tree because re(4) failed to connect to Realtek 8111E Ethernet on MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard.

I took and updated a NetBSD-current amd64 USB-stick installation, ran pkg_rolling-release and built devel/subversion from pkgsrc.

NetBSD's re(4) works on that motherboard, I checked out the src tree, later doc and ports trees, switched back to FreeBSD USB-stick installations and built FreeBSD 10-HEAD.

This was a bit before BETA1, when HEAD was still on releng-10.

That was a fresh install rather than an update.

Directories on hard drive partition included /usr/src, /usr/ports, /usr/doc, /netbsd-HEAD and /pkgsrc .

Now I look ahead to updating 9.2-STABLE installation to 10.0-STABLE using hard drive, understand it will be necessary or strongly recommended to rebuild all ports.

I will likely update 10.0 installation on MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard to STABLE/postrelease, both amd64 (hard drive) and i386 (USB 3.0 stick) first.

But I am also working on 11-HEAD for both amd64 and i386.  One big reason for i386 installation is Wine.
