Pfsense cannot install on Denverton platform



  • On Denverton platform, we want to install Pfsense OS from console. But system will stop at following message.

    "ses0 at ahciem0 bus 0 scbus6 target 0 lun 0
    ses0: <ahci sgpio="" enclosure="" 1.00="" 0001="">SEMB S-E-S 2.00 device

    "
    The Pfsense we used is console mode version, "pfSense-CE-memstick-serial-2.4.2-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz".

    BTW, if we use VGA version "pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.2-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz", it can install successfully.

    Does anyone have idea about this issue??

    Thanks.

  • AFAIK Denverton is supported from FreeBSD 11.2 onwards, currently only available in snapshots.
    Available builds are based on FreeBSD 11.1 and lack Denverton support. You'll have to wait I guess.

    (Only exception is the factory build for XG-7100 which has it back ported but you won't get that with the free Community Edition)





  • What I said. Thanks for looking up the threads.



  • Got it and thanks for your reply.  :)
