I tried to boot my laptop with both, dfly-i386-2.10.1_REL.img and 
DragonFly-i386-LATEST-IMG.img (20-Aug-2011) without any success.  When I 
press F1 (DF/FBSD) it just prints the message again.  The image should 
be fine and i've written it to the usb stick correctly, so I'm wondering 
what's going wrong?

Sorry I've got no additional symptoms nor informations to share in this 
situation.  It just doesn't work.  The bootloader seems to be happy with 
itself without letting F1 to go through.  Only F5 (Drive 1) works.

How is the memory stick image created?  I'm doing the NetBSD memory 
sticks myself and it works.  So my laptop's bios seems to be okay.
