full boot only possible after enter ufs:/dev/da0s1a
« on: January 25, 2012, 08:10:39 am »
I have a problem to get pfsense to boot on my HP N36L Server
The Memstick image does work and boot fine

the nanbsd image, regardless which one i choose (written with physdiskwrite)
the kernel does boot but does hang on mounting root

after typing in ufs:/dev/da0s1a on the "hanging point" pfsense finished booting and i could setup my nics and Ip

i checked the loader.conf (did /etc/rc.conf_mount_rw first) and it is empty

where do I configure the root for slice 1 and 2 ?

Any idea ?

when i put the da0S1a as default root in the loader.conf under /boot/default it works and pfsense does boot
strange

Edit

selecting Option 3 (boot from USB) on the boot menu did the trick not the change on the entry in the file

How do I change the default entry on the menu ?
