Thank you Carling

I have seen reports that unetbootin does not properly burn FreeBSD ISO files to disk and only works for Linux ISO files. This is an error with the unetbootin utility itself and not PC-BSD/FreeBSD.

Please see the PC-BSD handbook[1] for directions on how to properly burn a PC-BSD ISO file to disk on various operating systems (section 2.5 in the 10.0 handbook).
