Bootable USB flash installation media for 2013-12-25?

Hi,

I tried ArchBSD on a virtual machine and really liked it. Now I want to install it to my machines but none of them have CD-ROM drive sad   Can anybody tell me how to create a bootable USB flash media from 2013-12-25 iso?  I tried an old one <ftp://ftp.archbsd.net/iso/2013-08-25/Ar … 013.img.xz> but stuck at mounting the zfs filesystem with this command "zpool import -o altroot=/mnt -o cachefile=/boot/zfs/zpool.cache -f tank".

I have an Arch Linux desktop and PC-BSD laptop here so I can use them to create a bootable USB.

Thanks,

Never mind. I recreated the USB flash from 2013-08-25/ArchBSD-amd64-25082013.img.xz because when I inserted it to the PC-BSD laptop, the laptop couldn't mount the file system and suggested to run fsck. It seems I broke the contents when I selected a wrong screen resolution and had to reset the system.

I started installation process again, and this time, I don't get the error anymore.

Thanks,
