I'm new to PF Sense. Trying to install it on old HP 7800 pc. Tried memstick-2.3.2-release-amd64.img and memstick-2.3.2-release-i386.img. versions. Loaded SanDisk USB 2.0 8 gig using rufus 2.11.995 with following options from Rufus: DD Image, Fat32. When starting up a computer, choosing to boot from USB have continuosly blinking cursor on the top left corner of the screen. Whatever i tried so far - doesn't work. Same blinking cursor on several computers with different usb thumb drives. Maybe the way Rufus making a bootable usb ? Any info is highly appreciated. Thanks
made a stick today … also with rufus ... changed nothing- just clicked the cd symbol an selected the .img file ... worked like a charm
pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.2-RELEASE-i386.img selected ...
just to be sure: you have extracted the img out of gz right ?
did you try to install any other OS from stick on that system ?
Thanks for the reply. Didi you try to boot from that USB? If yes, to what mode your bios is set UEFI?
uefi won't work
Tried to use same usb on 2 HP7800 pcs. Both have same booting issues.
Used this usb on a dell - it booted without a hiccup..
Maybe HPs are not compatible?
its more then likely a bios setting of some sort. Have you tried resetting it to factory defaults?
