unfortunately 2.4.1 had the same USB problems for me, but I just realized that I tested it with CSM enabled (support for legacy BIOS). I will try with that option disabled and see...
This will take some time as cutting internet access does not bode well with the family.

Edit : correct definition of CSM

This worked for me:

 Boot from image
- At first loader menu choose to boot in safe mode (6,3)
-  Reboot (1)
- Complete installation in safe mode
- Before final reboot choose to add manual changes (goes to prompt)
- Edit and add to  /boot/loader.conf  ( hint.hpet.0.clock="0" )

it survived reboot and upgrade.

Just tried this and it worked! (2.4.2)

For all the newbies out there this is what I had to write to get into the config file
edit /boot/loader.conf
also I got a promt during the loading screen, there i hit "Enter" and wrote "exit" before hitting enter once more and after that the loading of the installer continues.

Please don't use /boot/loader.conf, it gets overwritten on every single update of the system. Use /boot/loader.conf.local instead.

I am in the same dilemma on Asrock J3455B ITX. Currently, I am on 2.3.5 and there is an upgrade to 2.4.1.


Can I just go to Edit/Boot/loader.conf.local and paste hint.hpet.0.clock="0" on GUI and do the upgrade to 2.4.1? Or do I have to do a clean install?

You can leave the entry in /boot/loader.conf.local, the update/upgrade procedure won't touch the file in any way.
