My laptop is a Lenovo V110-15AST AMD A9-9410

I downloaded the img file to write onto a USB 3 8GB stick.
After, I then used dd to write the image
sudo dd if=/home/ukbeast/Downloads/FreeBSD-12.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1M conv=sync

I then have 3 partitions on the stick as:
sdb1 8:17 1 800K 0 part
├─sdb2 8:18 1 929.9M 0 part
└─sdb5 8:21 1 929.9M 0 part

Using gnome-disks, I can see that sdb5 is labelled as FreeBSD_Install, but sdb2 has no label and uses the same disk space as FreeBSD_Install

FreeBSD_Install is the correct label. GNU/Linux utilities don't follow quite the same partitioning schemes as FreeBSD, and can't normally see the details of FreeBSD slices and partitions. Have you tried booting from it? I'm guessing it will probably boot okay.

And here comes the error 19 I suppose. But without details, it will be hard to understand the problem.

Yes. @ ukbeast89, please provide more details about the error message text. When does it occur? Do you get as far as the FreeBSD boot prompt? Can you take a photograph and post it?

According to this thread, the solution might be as simple as just moving the USB stick to another USB port on your machine. If that doesn't work you might want to look at some of these other links.

I've found something interesting, I was able mount the FreeBSD_install after writing to an external HGST via USB.
My USB flash drives that failed to mount from, are: SanDisk Cruzar Glide 16GB & SanDisk Cruzar Blade 8GB.
