cannot boot usb-bootonly image

Description

I am trying to install PCBSD on my lenovo ideapad y570 using the 9.0-release-usb-bootonly image, and it refuses to boot properly, telling me that I should look at my xorg.conf in regular mode, and not giving any information in vesa mode. I think it may be due to my nvidia graphics driver, but it is not clear how to edit any files when the error presents itself

I have tried using the more recent 9.1 RC1 image in hopes that the
issue has been fixed and I need only wait for 9.1, but that gave me a mount prompt, where I must type in something along the lines ufs:/dev/ada2s1 in order to boot. when I typed the name of the image containing the pcbsd image, it gave me an error 19

on a much smaller note, the 4 gigabyte usb images don't quite fit on my 4 gigabyte flashdrives :(

Hey empathica! This should be fixed for rc2. There was a timeout issue with the USB drives. Please retest when the new image is rolled out and let us know if you have any other issues pertaining to this.
