I've seen a few posts stating that people got pfSense running on the GTA GB1000-GB1200 firewalls. I've just acquired a GB1000R from my old company. I upped the RAM to 512MB and I put in a Toshiba 512MB CF card. pfSense will boot up but then fails with the can't mount root error.
Now in the GB unit, the CF reader is the Secondary slave device. Just for dumb, I took the case apart and hooked the CF into a CF-IDE adapter and plugged it into the Primary Master IDE connector. Whala, pfSense booted up. So apparently, pfSense doesn't see the CF card on the Secondary Slave. Unfortunately, there is no way in the Bios to change these settings. The case is too tight to fit the CF-IDE adapter in there permanently.
Does anyone have any ideas that I can do? How did those of you already running on a GB unit get it working? Should I try another CF card?
