Install 1.2.3 on ALIX with IDE HDD



  • I can not find anywhere the proper procedure to install pfSense 1.2.3 on a full hd connected to a 2d13 alix. I found this link http://nw-ds.com/ALIX_with_IDE_HDD but does not work :-(.
    I tried to install pfSense on hd but when I connect it always gives me the error all'alix Trying to mount root from pfSense.
    Does anyone know the link to be able to follow some guidelines?
    thank you very much



  • ok I unplugged the hard drive and I stuck on a laptop. I installed pfSense 1.2.3 live cd but when I plug in the Alix comes out this error:

  • Faulty IDE cable? Faulty IDE controller?

    Does it boot cleanly on the laptop?



  • On the laptop I did not try to start pfSense. Now I see that it works correctly on the laptop.

    PS: but at the end of installation what I set?
    monoprocessor
    multiprocessor
    or system embended

    excuse for my bad English



  • I put the hard disk on the laptop but the system locks up
    F1 FREEBSD
    Boot: F1
    |
    and then stops everything



  • If you installed Embedded it didn't lock up, it's now expecting you to be using the serial console.

    I believe that ALIX requires the embedded kernel, since it doesn't have a VGA output.



  • I'm reinstalling pfSense and try to see if it hangs on the laptop. If it keeps crashing I switch a firewall system for alix.



  • I reinstalled pfSense on hard disk but I always get the same error.
    PfSense starts, but then the system reports the error in the second post.



  • ok con la 2.0 embendedd non ho nessun problema e finalmente riesco ad installare anche i packages. :D
