Error Fresh installation, media sector size



  • Hello guys,
          I have tried install Pfsense with this img: pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.4-RELEASE-amd64.img, but I can't install, the log is the following:

    
    Media sector size is 512
    Warning: Bios sector numbering starts with sector 1
    Information from DOS bootblock is: 
    The data for patition 1 is:

    beg: cyl 0/ head 1/ sector 1;
    end: cyl 276/ head 15/ sector 63

    exit status: 1
    
    

    note: I added the pictures with the full log error, names: error-log1 and error-log2

    Here is the disk target for the installation, before tried install Pfsense

    
    fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/sda: 119.2 GiB, 12803567160 bytes, 250069680 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector seize (logical/physical): 512bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimun/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    
    

    Here is the same disk after tried install Pfsense:

    
    Disk /dev/sda: 119.2 GiB 128035676160 bytes, 25006980 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

    Disklabel type: dos

    I took 2 pictures from Bios, the Main and the Disk's section, names: Bios-disks and bios-info.

    If you need any else, please let me know.

    Thanks!!

    At a loss to what your trying to do?  The memstick images are meant to be written to a usb stick.. And then booted from that stick..

  • I did.

    I used an usb to install Pfsense and the error is from that installation using pfSense-CE-memstick-2.3.4-RELEASE-amd64.img.
