Installation on Watchguard X700
When trying to boot off of my CF card I get hung up
The only message displayed is:
Im using an 8GB CF card. I noticed there is a 2 and 4GB version on the download page. Could this be what is causing my issue? I installed the 2GB version.
I also cannot seem to get into a command prompt or anything. Upon bootup I get
2: PF Sense
Any help would be appreciated
EDIT: Just tried the 4G version and flashed it to a CF card via windiskimager, before I was using Rufus. I was finally able to prompt me to a command line. There I followed some instructions on inputting
still no go.
Would the Watchguard forum be on any help?
Oh I see you double threaded. This is where your question is.
I had one of these a long time ago. The standard OEM size was 128MB and 265MB CF card. You changed to 8GB I think you need to go into bios setting to set your CF card to a bigger size, otherwise it will not read correctly. I think the size limit was 4GB. So 8GB would not work. My memory isn't so good, again, check out:
I double threaded? I was curious as to why nobody was responding. I see this forum is pretty active.
I thought the 700 didn't have a size limitation. Though I Could be wrong. I'd like to get this thing out of my room and actually working so I'll be bumping this thread a bit more.
Please let me know any ideas you may have. I'll take a look at the bios though
That box has a pretty ancient CPU if I recall and limited ram upgrade options. It may not be worth the effort to be honest.
However it looks like the loader values are killing whatever console you're using.
I assume you're using the serial console? What exact image are you using? Is it still getting stuck at that same point?
That's upsetting. I've got an 8 Gig CF Card. I ran both the 4 and 2 GB version of the i386 embedded NanoBSD Serial installer.
I was beginning to think about just virtualizing pfsense. I've already got a box I am going to be running as a storage server. I've got multiple renditions of MS Server I want to play with.
What're the thoughts on that? Would I have better luck than the Firebox?
Ah sorry I misread the model in the title here. The X-Core boxes are pretty ancient though.
Nothing special should be required to boot that other than using the correct image and possible a smaller card.
Running as a VM will almost certainly be far more powerful than the X700.
