[SOLVED]Booting problem on Fabiatech FX5624

  • Hello,

    I successfully installed pfsense 1.2.3 but the boot process is stuck at :

    _F1 pfSense
    Default: F1


    I installed pfsense 1.2.2 on the same hardware, the boot process is stuck at the mountroot

    Manual root filesystem specification:
    <fstype>: <device>Mount <device>using filesystem <fstype>eg. ufs:da0s1a
    ? List valid disk boot devices
    <empty line="">abort manual input

    Once i specify the right root filesystem (ufs:ad1s1a) , the boot is successfull.

    Anyone has an idea of the issue?

    Edit : The hardware is a Fabiatech FX5624, didn't use embedded version

    Typically what you are seeing is due to the HDD controller, or BIOS settings for the HDD controller.

  • Disabling packet mode during boot block installation solved the issue.
