Install 2.4.2 on Lanner NCA-1210



  • I am trying to install pfSense-CE-memstick-serial-2.4.2-RELEASE-amd64.img
    on Lanner NCA-1210. I tried the rufus or win32diskimager to burn the image on a USB flash drive. after booting the device, I got the following message.

    Reboot and Select proper Boot device
    or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

    I then insert the USB flash drive on another working pfsense type the following command

    gpart set -a active da0

    I put the USB drive back to the Lanner NCA-1210. The system able to boot the USB drive but stopped at mountroot>

    Thank you for any suggestions.
