  • I was trying to install on to a 250GB sata from a sata dvd with no luck, I tried writing zeros to the drive, load setup default, disable Extended BIOS Data Area,  disable CPU Hyper-Threading,  change to P-ATA & S-ATA, set sata to P0-3rd, disable floppy drive and floppy controller and  enable quick boot, then I tried to install pfsense it installed but  got the error 1 lba, so I plugged in a  80GB sata with the same setting and it installed and boot with no problem. so then I ghost the 80 to the 250 gig and that boot hope this help, I will look over the settings to make sure



  • Don't you guys think its funny that you all seem to have the same type of problem but no one has posted any help?

    Its because the problem has been covered a gazzillion times all ready.

    So I went back to the forum and searched again and some bloke said you need to disable UDMA in the BIOS, PIO only. I did this and bang both drives boot!
