New Install 2.4.2 memstick
I downloaded pfsense 2.4.2 memstick installer and used rufus 2.18 to create a bootable usb to run pfsense on. GPT partition scheme on UEFI installer.
I plug it into my machine and it begins to load the installer.
clicnk on install pfsense
continue with default keymap
select auto (UFS)
goes into partition editor.
da0 7.5GB GPT
da0p1 800kb efi
da0p2 59kb freebsd-boot
da0p3 609MB freebsd-ufs
da0p4 1.0MB freebsd-swap
i click on finish
CONFIRMATION - your changes will no be overwritten to disk
ERROR - No root partition was found. the root pfsense partition must have a mountpoint of '/'
go in to modufy it and set it to /
goes to install and then says
error mounting partition /mnt: mount /dev/da0p3: operation not permitted.
failed to mount filesystem
Now i know this sounds stupid but surely you cant install it to the same USB drive as you are installing from??
Is there a question in there somewhere?
sure is a question, i was typing away and hit post before i finished. its probably a silly question but it is new years day :P
It only shows you that single disk da0? No others?
How large is the drive you are trying to install to? What kind of drive is it? What kind of controller? Whatever it is it looks like the installer cannot see it.
da0 looks like 8GB and is probably the booted USB memory stick.
I hadnt properly inserted the other USB….. Happy new year!! im off to a great start.
