OpenVox IPC 100
Hi there, i have a openvox ipc100 with 2gb Memory and a 1.6GHz Atom CPU
I have installed many pfsense before also on alix mainboard, no problem.
but with the openvox i see no screen after the bios POST messages.
i have installed pfsense 2.0b4 on the cf-card, anything ok on a alixboard or on a
watchguard firebox. i am connected via serial cable, the settings are ok because
i see the Bios messages and also i can jump in to the bios to made changes.
but after a few secondas during a normal boot, i see only a black screen and
i am not able to made the settings for the lan wan… on the console.
can some one may be help me?
I ran into the same thing on the one I have. I'll be working on it sometime this week, will follow up here when I have more info and/or a solution.
Would be very interested in being able to use the OpenVox IPC 100 too … :)
hmmm maybe its some thing that i have to disable on the bios, i can't finde the problem at the moment.. but also working on it.
What do your LEDs on the board look like? Per the manual, they all 3 should light on power up, one should turn off when POST starts, and two should turn off after POST completes, leaving only one lit. All 3 are solid on with mine and they never turn off. Nothing on the serial console, nor with the VGA header attached. Wondering if I have a DOA board, contacting OpenVox to find out more.
Nevermind that last post, that was just a huge instance of user error. :o I got the board from them (as a contribution to the project) without RAM and didn't realize it. :D I'm used to boards like that having it onboard so the empty slot didn't stick out to me until I talked to someone at OpenVox, at which point I realized the stupid mistake.
I have some RAM on the way then I bet it'll work a whole lot better!
i think so :-)
hope you can find the issue, i do not see whats wrong with my setup. hmmm…
any news on that?
i have still a not working system.
:D I'd like to see any updates for that if you've tried it out.
i can not find the problem but my one does still not work.
i am open for ideas, so what do you have for me?
not cool that nobody has an idea, i disabled any thing in the bios that i can… ACPI .. USB.. but still the same effect.. i see onle a Black screen after POST
may be some one has an idea ???
For embedded, it requires a work around that some Intel chipsets need. Info detailed here:
The full installs work fine out of the box as normal where the jumpers are set appropriately for the type of drive being used.
