Troubles installing PfSense from my USB



  • I looked up a guide on installing Pfsense on a USB. The guide I used is [this one][/https://oitibs.com/pfsense-usb-install-guide-rufus/] which uses a program called rufus. I followed the directions given and booted to the usb device, no trouble there. When I am greeted with the startup screen of Pfsense, I select '1. Multi-User Mode'. After a few seconds of waiting I am greeted with this screen attached below. The PC I am attempting to install it on is a Dell Optiplex 745.



  • are you sure this system doesn't have any hardware issues ? (bad ram for example)
    is the cpu capable of 64bit ?

    you can try disabling the useless things in the bios (like audio/serial/parallel) Just try a reset to bios defaults for starters.



  • I checked the statuses for the RAM in the BIOS. Nothing wrong with them. I'll get to disabling useless things in the bios.



  • Okay. I am now getting a repeated beep when I turn it on, and the pc does not display anything. BTW, this PC has a Core 2 Duo and 8 GB of DDR2 RAM.



  • The uma_zalloc_arg you're getting is because the computer is having memory reference errors. Run memtest86 on it, and I bet you'll see errors with your RAM.
