  • The fact that most text is strike through (also known as : non readable) is just optical.

    You're not saying anything about what caused the crash. It' impossible to give you a reason.
    I advise : ditch the box, take another one  :)



  • Hi

    When I posted the post text, it did not have any line I do not know why it has it now
    and, the reason for the crash I don’t know because like I wrote it suddenly crashed and it won’t get past the boot so I can’t see why
    when i tried to ping the firewall it did not respond but the firewall was running and had no power failure so i rebooted it and

    The last line it writes before it hang or wont boot is

    ada0: Previously was known as ad4

    I have tried to Change sata port,
    Change ssd, and clean install 2.3.4 and 2.3.2 and none of it won’t go past

    ada0: Previously was known as ad4



  • Have you tried a different disk?



  • Let's consider this :
    @Aru23:

    …..
    ada0: Previously was known as ad4

    says something.
    It means : all log lines, including the "" is ok.

    I have this :

    All these lines are just the kernel looking up and initializing all the available hardware.
    For me, the next device is "cd0", or : the " Removable CD-ROM".
    At that moment, my kernel - as yours - is enumerating all drives.

    => What about disabling all interfaces (drives) in your BIOS, except the one that hosts your drive (SSD).

    If all is well, it will continue with the  "lapic1" (the interrupt controller).

    edit : free tip : NEVER use Post button on the forum. Always start with the "Preview button". You'll see, reread yourself and you will edit what you wrote. That's normal, and happens to the most of us.



  • I can’t change bios settings because its locked
    I have tried different ssd

    It’s stuck at

    ada0: Previously was known as ad4

    And I tried to leave it for some time so I can hear the pfsense chime but i don’t like I do normaly

    I use putty with 115200 setting and if I leave putty after

    ada0: Previously was known as ad4

    Then next time it won’t get any reaction it’s just blank



  • @Aru23:

    I can’t change bios settings because its locked

    2 options :

    1. access the BIOS - YOU can - we can't.
      or
    2. change the device.


  • you are just posting the dmesg output which is the kernel loading procedure.

    Its failing to go past the kernel loading stage, so nothing from rc.conf is been processed as an example, no filesystem has been mounted.

    If this is happening on a true clean install and you are powerless to do anything in the bios then your only option is to swap out hardware.



  • I think it's better to go https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=43574.585 and post your question again, just linking this topic, may be somebody can help you.
