PFsense Keyboard layout issue



  • Hello all,
    I'm new to PFsense and I am trying to install 2.4.4 on a system. During the installation process, the keyboard is mapped to something completely different from the standard US layout and I cannot select anything.
    The keyboard types R when backspace is pressed, Enter when space is pressed, and E when 3 (upper row) is pressed. Those are the only 3 keys that do anything. I have tried 2 different keyboards, all 6 usb connections on this PC (2 front IO, 4 rear) and I've also tried reinstalling PFsense 2 times all with the same result.

    Is there any reason this would be happening?
    Thank you in advance.

    Can you describe:

    • your equipment: real PC/virtual PC/netgate device?
    • what image you are using?

    That seems very odd. The US layout should be the default.

    Yes exactly what image are you using?
