Apu1c4 unattended reinstall images



  • just got this model home -used, with case and everything.

    https://www.pcengines.ch/apu1c4.htm

    but since i dont have a serial cable, i just moved the msata to my current qotom unit and did a install of pfsense.

    now, moving back to this unit didnt make it boot into 192.168.1.1

    so my question is, is there any finished fresh install images downloable any places ? i can move to the msata and fire up the box ?

    of is it posible to create an unattended image that just reinstall pfsense with correct configuration.

  • nope. its 20 dollars with cable in denmark..

    so i solved it in a funnier way..

    what i did was:

    create USB with version 2.5

    plugin keyboard

    4-8 times enter untill the harddrive lights flashs red alot. ( installing )

    waited for about 5 min

    then 2 times enter, to get out out the install process https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/install/installing-pfsense.html

    and pulled the usb stick out.

    reboot...

    The diskLED is flashing red, and the familiar boot sound from the board

    then the funny part.. the auto configuration of the LAN

    3 enter

    3 enter

    And then test the GUI, and it works. Im in.

    changes the setup to:

    WAN re1

    LAN re2

    and turns on telnet/SSH

    reboot.

    SUPER.. no need for serial cable issues..
