EMMC device issues



  • i cant seem to get pfsense to install to my device with an eMMC on board storage.

    when i try use rufus to install from the iso i get a crash at mounting the image

    when i use the usb memstick installer it cant detect the eMMC at all to install too

    What sort of device is it?

    It's possible FreeBSD doesn't have a driver for that controller, or perhaps there is a BIOS setting that is putting it into a mode that the OS can't talk to.

    You might try a pfSense 2.4 snapshot (https://snapshots.pfsense.org/)



  • it's a UPSquared

    the exact model is in my signature.

    I'm hoping the 32GB m2 drive I bought arrives today so it might not matter.



  • yep it arrived…

    no great loss now



  • How things are going on, friends?

    I can't see the eMMC while installing pfsense (recent snapshot) on Gigabyte el 20 3710 too. Any suggestion, please?

    I try disable secure boot, select the Legacy 64bit and it doesn't help :(

    Please help me!

    as far as I could work out pfsense doesnt support emmc yet so I ran it off a USB stick for a while but I was having other problems so I've temporarily switched to ipfire so i can concentrate on classwork.

    @randomaustralian:

    Careful with your wording. pfSense most certainly does support eMMC as we have been selling devices that run off eMMC for years and they work well. FreeBSD may not support your board's specific storage controller but it is not an issue with supporting eMMC in general.

    I stand corrected…

    i'm running pfsense on what is linked in my signature



  • i dont know if freebsd supports my controller card yet but i put a 30gb msata in and i have pfsence running now
