'Can't load kernel' error at startup from USB



  • Hi,

    I have the following motherboard: Jetway J7F4K1G5D

    When I start the pc and boot from USB with the pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.2-RELEASE-i386.img file writen to it, it gives me an error 'Can't load kernel'.

    Please can you help me?

    Try a different USB memstick. If you're using a USB 3 memstick, try a USB 2 memstick.

    Otherwise, check for a BIOS update or see what, if anything, can be changed in the BIOS that might help. There isn't anything the OS itself can do at that point, it's all your hardware.



  • I have the same problem

    My mbo is Via Epia and i did try to install to ide HDD no way .

    Different Stick didnt help , on my laptop it goes but i get a different eror .

    What you can try is go to bios on the hdd you are using ad disable smart and dma set all to manual and hdd typ from auto to LBA.

    Maybe that will help .
