full install pfsense on soekris
« on: March 18, 2017, 04:17:14 am »

I have a soekris net6501 appliance with a msata of 8GB.

Soekris only has a serial (no VGA) and it's impossible to boot either on USB installation key or on DVD usb drive due to BIOS issue.

I'd like to avoid nanobsd and perform a full installation (for using entire space disk of my msata), and I've not idea how to proceed.

-> use boot usb key is impossible
-> i only have a serial output

Any help will be appreciated ^^

thank you

Install an older version that will boot on that box (e.g. 2.1.x) and then upgrade.
