Micro drive boot error: ad2: TIMEOUT - WRITE retrying
I just switched over from running pfsense on an old laptop, to a via epia m board.
When the system boots it hangs at ad2: TIMEOUT - WRITE retrying
Im using a hitachi 4gb microdrive. and an ebay'd CF to ide adapter.
Never used a CF or microdrive for pfsense.
Really need to get this running :( Don't have anything to run in the meantime.
I should add, Ive tried both of my hitachi drives. I'm going to try a diffrent CF adapter tonight.
I tested the drives on another box and didn't have any issues installing XP.
You probably need to disable DMA.
You do need to disable DMA, this is what I id with 1.2
FYI though, 2.0rc does not install on microdrives with CF adapters and just bombs with geom errors :(
