Default Installing from LiveUSB

Hi all,

I'm newbie on OpenBSD, and I want to install OpenBSD having a liveUSB (I haven't CD on the server) but I can't manage to boot the image!

I followed this howto:


Downloading install51.iso, format the usb device with fat16, and copy the image with dd. Qemu boot the image, but any computer does.

Also, I tried downloading the liveusb-mini.vdi, but I'm not sure copying this directly to the pendrive, would work.

What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
