Question Freenas system freezes when changes are made

I am having problems with freenas. first off, i have a dell dimension 3000 which was my dads which was thought to not boot.It was actually not plugged in right. Aside from that,when i first boot it up, i can do one of two things. If there is a cd in it, in this case the 080708 release of freenas on cd, it will boot of it. I can then configure settings like installing it on usb. i can access the webgui with the cd in the machine. but when i change settings and try applying them. the gui freezes. i look at the console menu on the monitor and input something it too is frozen. the nas to be is all in a different room. i adminster this the webgui in my room. When i try booting of usb. i have to manually select the usb drive at startup. When it stops booting up, it is just frozen. and I either have an ip of or with the webgui.i have a Newegg 1GB USB2.0 FOR READY BOOST Model L1GB-RBST - Retail flash drive.i basically think i have some wake on lan problems. Can anyone help me with this?
I have had no luck finding answers thus far .i am not sure what other forums i could go to so i am posting here next. I also have a raid card in transit which i was hoping to use with my 3 harddrives in my system and another dell in its box still. please help much would be appreciated.

Haven't try freenas but i have tried to store some rw files on an USB stick. If the stick is older you can forget it. At me it was took abot 45 minutes for storing about 70M.
Have you tried to install it ?

I fixed it

In my bios i now have configured it to boot off usb. the 4 drive bays have hardrives now. in the advance menu i only have 'Disable speaker beep on startup and shutdown" and "Enable Zeroconf/Bonjour to advertise services of this device" checked.the "Enable tuning of some kernel variables" &
The "powerd utility monitors the system state and sets various power control options accordingly" options were the culprits.


bsd, freebsd, freenas
