I can't find option 99 to install



  • I downloaded, and burned pfSense-1.2.2-LiveCD-Installer.iso. I put it in the computer I plan to use as my firewall. According to all the docs I can find here I'm supposed to select option 99. The trouble is that I only get 7 options which are:
    1. Boot pfSense [default]
    2. Boot pfSense with ACPI disabled
    3. Boot pfSense in Safe Mode
    4. Boot pfSense in single user mode
    5. Boot pfSense with verbose logging
    6. Boot pfSense to loader prompt
    7. Reboot

    How do I do an install? Did I get the wrong ISO?

    Thanks,



  • You need to boot to the live CD first….

    That menu is essentially the options for the boot loader. Like options for safe mode with windows, or options for single user mode for Linux using grub or lilo.
    Just let it boot normally and you will see the options after a successful start-up.
