64bit 20101110-0242 Panic on root filesystem mount
Just tried testing the 20101110-0242 64bit build it panics trying to mount the root filesystem from CD during the install process. I've verified the download and reburnt CD just to be safe.
Server is a Proliant DL360 G7 2 x 12 core at 3GHz and 12 gig of ram.
The 32bit installs fine on the same server but as I'd like to test both PFSense 2 and BGP with full internet routing tables the 64bit version is the preferred option (to many memory problems on 32bit trying to deal with all those routes, unless someone has a magic tweak I've not come across)
FreeBSD 8.1 64bit installs and runs fine so I'm not quite sure what is going on.
All help, advice or chocolate biscuits gratefully accepted.
I've tried this on some older HP servers and even on a PC with a single AMD chip and can't get it to boot.
Can anyone confirm they have booted and installed it on physical hardware.
Can you get a picture or capture the output of the panic in some way?
Does it work if you use an older ISO to install (Maybe from 2-3 weeks ago), then do a firmware update?

I have booted pfSense 2.0-BETA4 20101112 amd64 version on a HP DL 360 G7 server with the latest firmware updates from HP, then I installed pfSense on the hard drives, everything went fine.
The DL360 G7 serie has a LOT of firmware upgrades to apply, regarding BIOS, RAID controller, ILOM etc etc. I strongly suggest the original poster to apply all those upgrades and then try again.
Sorry for the slow response but I'm on leave and relaxing :)
yes all firmware and bios upgrades are applied As I said no problems with FreeBSD 8.1 installing.
I'll try with the latest 64bit build when I get back next Monday as the 32 bit build just can't handle all the routes supplied by BGP.
Jimp, if it still fails I'll find some way of getting a screen dump.
I'm very keen to see the 64bit version move forward so I'll be putting a lot of time into testing this and hopefully resolve a few bugs.
Just installed 20101122-0218 with no issues. Will now start some serious testing :)
