I keep getting an error message of missing files after it requests If I want developer options on the beginning of the install. Tried to continue on and install packages later but it fails to fetch anything.

Not a lot of information to base anything on but here we go:

Did you check the hash before burning the image? It may have gotten corrupted during download.

Tried to continue on and install packages later but it fails to fetch anything.
Fails to fetch anything implies that your network configuration might have failed before that. No network means you can't fetch anything from the network (or internet).

Developer options? Aren't you the lucky one. It never asks me anything like that.

Closest thing would be this at the System Hardening Screen during installation of the Base System.
Code:
Disable reading kernel message buffer for unprivledged users
Disable process dubugging facilities for unprivledged users
Ramndomize the PID for newly created processes
Disallow Dtrace destructive-mode

This might be of help to you:

I would think that 'Developer Options' really means using the space bar to put an 'X' into the checkbox for 'src.txz', and it's probably a minimal boot image that fetches EVERYTHING over an Internet connection...

That"s when you're at the Distribution Select screen. From my tutorial:

At the Distribution Select screen choose:

lib32
ports
src

I always have it install src so that it may be well with me.

Yes that's exactly what I meant. I didn't know how to explain it.

I'd skip the ports at install, and use portsnap instead... that way, I can have an easier time updating my ports, and grabbing something fresher than what the install image provides.
