Alix APU with mSATA - Installation from USB stick (memstick-serial image) not working - Boot Menu F12 not working
a few weeks ago I did an upgrade of my pfsense and it went bad. For whatever reason I got a similar problem like described here in this thread:
In general no problem, because I have a backup and doing a fresh install is not a bad idea.
My main problem is that I used rufus to copy the image (.img) to a 4 GB USB 2.0 stick.
I used this image:
I connect via putty and a serial connection with 115200 baud to the Alix APU. On boot when I press F12 i cannot boot from USB stick. I used both USB slots on the Alix board.
I tried several tutorials, pfsense documentations but without luck. Several years ago I installed the Alix APU with an USB stick, too but I cannot remember what I did different than today.
I would appreciate any help. My goal is to do a fresh install. No need to save any data.
after trying several times, differen USB sticks and so on I had to chose another terminal than the default.
