2.0b5 (2/16/11), can't boot from CD to install.
« on: February 19, 2011, 02:39:09 pm »
I've just started playing with pfSense, as it looks like 2.0 will solve every issue I've ever had with Endian. :D

That being said, I thought I'd give it a try on the home-brew firewall appliances we've been deploying.  They're ATOM-based.

From what I was able to tell, it looked like the CD iso is what you use to install on a fresh drive, so I downloaded the one from Feb 16th and gave it a shot.  It wouldn't boot (see attached pic).  Indicates we have invalid mount options, and asks me to modify Loader variables....

Thoughts?

Are u using a USB connected cd drive? if so, when the system first boots, there is a menu with a 5-10 sec count-down. Select the option that says USB something(I can't remember exactly) Think its option 3 or 4.

Bless you.  Yes indeed USB CD drive.  I figured USB was for a USB Flash drive.  ;)

Thanks so much.
