Alix 1d



  • Hello everyone, i've just bought a new Alix 1d.
    I tried to install linux voyage, because i was told it was the easiest and fastest way to get it running. And so i installed
    voyage 0.5.2 from my ubuntu box in the 4gb Compact Flash, i got no errors during install. When i turned on the alix i got this error message:

    INTEL UNFI , PXE-2.0 (BUILD 0.83)
    COPYRIGHT (C) 1997,1998,1999 Intel Coorporation
    VIA RHINE III MANAGEMENT ADAPTER V.2.43 (2005/12/15)
    PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE
    PXE-MOF: EXITING INTEL PXE ROM
    DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
    

    I wanted to know if i've done something wrong. Whats the best(easiest to install) system one can install on an alix 1d.
    I hope you guys can help me
    Thanks

    This is a forum for pfSense. Some people use pfSense on ALIX hardware, but this is not the correct place to ask about Linux on ALIX.



  • The message suggests to me that the Alix is trying to boot over a network interface (PXE boot) but that is failing because the interface is not connected to anything useful. I don't know enough about Alix systems to guess whether this can be eliminated by a BIOS configuration change.

    The

    DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.

    message suggests the BIOS is either not seeing the CF or it can't find a bootable partition on it.
