Currently I am Using Linux Mint 17 and I want to dual boot FreeBSD and Linux Mint 17.

How can I create Bootable USB for FreeBSD 10? I tried Unetbootin, Image writer and powerISO but it's not working.

Please download memstick image from here (or you can use amd64 of course). Attach the pendrive and write the img file with dd:

dd if=your_img_file.img of=/dev/device_name_of_pendrive bs=512

The device_name_of_pendrive is the device name of pendrive, NOT partition! (e.g. /dev/sdc and not /dev/sdc1 or similar)
