    Do you own it or want to buy it?

    You may try out an older pfSense version, that is also x86 (32Bit) based, the newer one since or starting at
    2.4.0 is 64Bit only and no NanoBSD any more. So you could try it out with an older pfSense version NanoBSD
    on USB stick or 32Bit full install.

    i tryed with nanobsd too but i got an error "can't load kernel"

    Then this hardware will be perhaps customized and the OS version must be also customized to be able
    to run on that PC too.

    Thanks in advance.

    They are stating on their website the following:
    Ready-to-use : Optimized software on flash
    Processor AMD Geode LX800 500Mhz (x86)
    RAM 512 MB expandable up to 1GB
    Storage 1 GB Flash Memory (Internal)
    Network 10/100baseT Ethernet (RJ-45)
    Optimized Software, low RAM, and storage so you could try out pfSense 2.2.6 32Bit or NanoBSD 32Bit.

    with a dlink dgs 1100-8 … it is managed and i have used it before on another pfsense setup with 2 vlans, worked fine but it was a hole computer and i am trying to make it more compact with this mini-pc I already have.
