Failed to run middleware call

Hi Guys,

I succeeded in installing Freenas 11.2 u5 on a Kingston 32GB USB drive (which took roughly 3 hours though!). After the installation finished, I reboot the system (Dell R720) and waited for about 10 mins. The screen shows "Middleware startup is idle for more than 240 seconds", "MIDDLEWARED FAILED TO START, SYSTEM WILL NOT BEHAVE CORRECTLY!". After a while, it goes on with "Loading early kernel modules“ ”Syncing disks...". Then the message shown up as "Failed to run middleware call. Daemon not running?" .

Can anyone give me a hint about what might be wrong?

Reinstalled the system with version 11.1 U7, worked like a charm. Only several minutes required for installing on the USB flash disk. It seems the 11.2 is buggy for USB flash users.
