AMD board will not boot…
For the first time I cannot get pfSense to boot from a harddrive after having installed it the 'normal' way. It has always installed and booted without a hitch, however with this AMD Athlon board it just hangs after finishing the live-cd 99 installation.
This is what I've done:
Entered 99 from the live-cd menu
Tried to change keymap (have national keyboard) but there were no choices (why?) so I just accepted the default settings.
Selected Install pfSense
Selected ad1 as HDD (the only hdd drive, 20Gb)
Select disk geometry: Accepted suggested setting
Partition disk: I selected <skip this="" step="">Install Bootblocks, <skip this="" step="">Select a Partition, accepted suggested partition data, 18.9 Gb, drive formatted again.
I accepted these defaults and the actual files copy started and copying procedure ended without errors.
I removed the CD during the reboot but the computer just hangs with no error msg when arrived to the boot point.
I have also tried with the boot manager suggested in the wiki, but to no avail.
Are there any 'manual' steps I can try?
Thanks for any suggestions
Take a look at http://wiki.pfsense.com/wikka.php?wakka=BootTroubleShooting
Try without ACPI, without DMA, etc. All outlined in above links.
I tried with a third disk and it finally worked after I enabled LBA. Luckily ;-)
As of the installer's Keymap select option, is it intentional that there is no selectable countries but the 'default' there?
Any other possibilities to assign a national keyboard layout to pfsense..?
