Trouble with PFSense 2.4.3 Installation



  • I am installing PFSense 2.4.3 on a brand new computer build with the following specs;
    Intel 8th gen Celeron processor
    Ballistix 8GB RAM
    120GB SSD drive
    ASRock microATX board

    I am installing using an iso image on a cd and get the message seen below;

    Error 22, Unretryable error
    cddone: got error 0x16 back
    READ(10). CDB: 28 00 00 04 85 b2 00 00 01 00
    CAM status: SCSI Status Error
    SCSI status: Check Condition
    SCSI sense: ILLEGAL REQUEST asc:26,0

    Being a newbie ti using PFSense, I am unsure what this is telling me in regards to completing the installation. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Is that during the install or trying the boot installed OS afterwards?

    It appears to be some quirk with the drive controller. You might try a 2.4.4 snapshot which is built on FreeBSD 11.2 with slightly newer drivers:

    There appear to be some threads indicating changing the driver mode may get past that also.

  • Steve,

    It is on the install itself. Just to make sure I'm understanding you correctly, you suggest trying the 2.4.4 image? I have no problems trying that because if it doesn't work it can always be blown away and started fresh again.

    Yes, try a 2.4.4 snapshot.

    Whatever issue you're hitting there may well have been resolved in FreeBSD 11.2.
