2.0b5 (2/16/11), can't boot from CD to install.
I've just started playing with pfSense, as it looks like 2.0 will solve every issue I've ever had with Endian. :D
That being said, I thought I'd give it a try on the home-brew firewall appliances we've been deploying. They're ATOM-based.
From what I was able to tell, it looked like the CD iso is what you use to install on a fresh drive, so I downloaded the one from Feb 16th and gave it a shot. It wouldn't boot (see attached pic). Indicates we have invalid mount options, and asks me to modify Loader variables….
Are u using a USB connected cd drive? if so, when the system first boots, there is a menu with a 5-10 sec count-down. Select the option that says USB something(I can't remember exactly) Think its option 3 or 4.
Bless you. Yes indeed USB CD drive. I figured USB was for a USB Flash drive. ;)
Thanks so much.
your welcome :-) I had the same issue with i first tried 2.0
