memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT- not bootable



  • I would like to do a fresh clean of pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT but have been unsuccessful in creating a bootable usb or cd, I have download the latest version pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20180904-1004 and was not able to creating a bootable usb or cd, this is not my first time trying to create a bootable i have been trying for a while now with no success, has anyone been able to create a bootable usb or cd from the memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT if so what software did you use, I have tried IsoBurner, burncdcc, ImgBurn and others that will burn the cd but when i try to boot from the cd i get
    cd loader 1.2
    building the boot loader arguments
    looking up/boot/loader ... found
    relocating the loader and the BTX
    starting the BTX loader
    Btx Loader 1.00 Btx version is 1.02
    int=00000006 err-00000000 efl-00010202
    and other errors
    BTX halted
    and for the usb, no errors just won’t boot i tried 5 brands of usb drives with no luck i tried etcher, rufus and some others with no luck.

    What hardware are you installing on? Is it UEFI? Could it be?

    That looks like the output from a CD boot, you just see no boot at all from USB? Not recognised as a bootable device?

  • Is it UEFI? Could it be?
    I changed the boot in the bios to dual boot ( legacy and uefi) and the cd boot
    pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20180904-1004 fresh install with no problems thank you.

    That looks like the output from a CD boot
    yes it is the output of a cd

    you just see no boot at all from USB?
    yes see no boot at all from usb

    It should see the USB image as bootable if you have UEFI enbabled.
    That looks like a regression though. Thanks for reporting.
