Which installation method did you select? From CD, FTP...?

afaik, the boot only disc is minimal, and doesnt contain installation data, so choose FTP method or download the normal iso file instead.

bootonly is just that - it boots.

It doesn't have any installation data/packages on it. You are required to select the FTP method of installation using the bootonly disk.

Try using that method and let us know how that works.

HAVE YOU EVER TRY Boot Only CD ???

Boot from CD boot only
Boot FreeBSD [default]
Country Selection
239 VietNam
System Console Keymap
USA ISO US ISO keymap
FreeBSD/i386 7.0 - RELEASE - sysinstall Main Menu
Standard Begin a standard installation (recommended)

FDisk (Disk : ad1) [1 hardisk]
Install Boot Manager for drive ad1 ?
BootMgr Install the FreeBSD Boot Manager
Choose Distributions
All
Install the FreeBSD ports collection
....
It will
* extract base into / directory
* extract GENERIC into / boot directory
* extract doc into / directory
* ....
* extract scontrib into /usr/src directory
* ....
Add some core packages like libs , Xorg , ...
....

Initilize Users and Root accounts
Reboot .

You will use twm window manager ( default ) with Xorg on FreeBSD boot CD only .
