Alix problems - yet another one :) FIXED
« on: February 18, 2010, 01:39:57 am »
Im trying to get a Alix.2c1 to work - I have follows various guides and flashed a CF card with the embedded release-image.
Im using the tool from the m0n0wall-site.
When I hook up my board to Putty this is what I get:



PC Engines ALIX.2 v0.99
640 KB Base Memory
130048 KB Extended Memory
01F0 Master 044A TRANSCEND
Phys C/H/S 1942/16/63 Log C/H/S 971/32/63
1   FreeBSD
2   FreeBSD
Boot:   1 ############################################



And the ### keeps on going with one every 10-20 seconds.

My bios looks like this:

Engines ALIX.2 v0.99
640 KB Base Memory
130048 KB Extended Memory
01F0 Master 044A TRANSCEND
Phys C/H/S 1942/16/63 Log C/H/S 971/32/63
BIOS setup:
*9* 9600 baud (2) 19200 baud (3) 38400 baud (5) 57600 baud (1) 115200 baud
(C) CHS mode *L* LBA mode (W) HDD wait (V) HDD slave (U) UDMA enable
(M) MFGPT workaround
(P) late PCI init
*R* Serial console enable
(E) PXE boot enable
(X) Xmodem upload
(Q) Quit

I have tried the m0n0wall image and it boots perfectly, I have also tried a lot of different CF cards, also industrial and Sandisk
and it is always the same result.


Need to update to 0.99h instead   -   http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/ALIX_BIOS_Update_Procedure
