SG-5100 difficulty booting from USB
I'm having difficulty booting SG-5100 from USB. I am attempting to boot ADI-2.4.4 so that I can put pfSense on a newly install M2SATA. I have tried two different USBs. The USBs were created with Etcher. I have checked the BIOS and it is set to boot first from USB. I have tried with the BIOS USB set to both Dual and Legacy. I tried this in both USB ports. The boot process does see the USB and in all cases I get:
FreeBSDx86 bootstrap loader, rev 1.1

What I remember being the normally spinning slash (/ | \ ... ) does not happen. I have given it +10 minutes with no successful boot.
Thanks for the help!

@garyn IF you have not already opened a ticket, please do so at https://go.netgate.com we will be happy to get the required image over to you.
@chrismacmahon Just opened, thanks!
Curious, how would I have known which version (ADI, serial) to select for this system? Is there table tucked away in the documentation or the Netgate site somewhere?
What is the difference between factory and the public versions?
The page pointed to by the link chrismacmahon posted tells you which image to use for the SG-5100.
For almost each Netgate hardware there is a tweaked Image you should/need to use.
Which one exactly is in the device documentation.
