    Does this method still work?

      The best way I’ve found to create, boot, and install from an opensense/pfsense drive was to:

      • Download ” OPNsense-16.x.x-OpenSSL-nano-amd64.img.bz2″ with a Linux machine. *make sure it is the “.img”
      • Unzip the download to a folder with bzip2 in the terminal
      • After it has uncompressed use Ubuntu “Startup Disk Creator” to write the uncompressed image to the flash drive
      • Finally boot it

      Note: This method may work with a Windows machine but, when you try to boot from the flash you may get a GPT partitioning error. This results in an incorrect checksum which won’t allow you to boot from USB so I don’t recommend.
