New install reboot loop on EFI Framebuffer



  • Trying to install pfsense 2.4.2 AMD 64 and the installer reboots at the following screen (see attached screen shot). So far I have updated the BIOS on the machine and also tried to install via thumb drive with no success. I've reset the bios to default and I am starting to run out of ideas here so ANY help is appreciated. This is my 1st attempt at installing pfsense and so far it has not been pleasant. System specs as follows:

    AMD A6 360 Processor
    AAHD2 -HY (holly) motherboard
    8 gigs DDR3 Ram

    What image are installing from exactly there?

    Is that booting the installer or first boot after install?

    After hours of playing around with different flash drives and writing the image with dd I decided to write using etcher. Low and behold I finally got it to install!

    Huh, interesting. I'd have thought be the time it got to there it was writing the image out OK.

    Etcher is my 1st choice these days. I've yet to have a problem with it. In any OS.
