Brand... Some cheap stuff flat out will not work. That is why we post
about the transcend drives so often. They work well, and are cheap.

A common mistake is to write /dev/ad0s0 instead of /dev/ad0 and try and
write to a partition, not the boot block.

Highlight the "auto" selection and hit the "-" key to go back to "USER1" or
"USER2" and manually enter your settings. I think just about anything will
work as Grub doesn't really need it.

Change devices, or manually config the system. Transcend autodetects fine.

Then it should work with a manual config.
