Install problems

  • Hi, I downloaded and burn to CD the "pfSense-1.2.3-RELEASE-LiveCD-Installer.iso". Booted my server and choose Quick install, choosed Single processor and then after a while it says Reboot to HDD. I remove the CD and reboot.
    Following shows and the server hangs:

    F1 FreeBSD

    Boot: F1
    Starting MS-DOS

    What happend, and I have a second question.
    How do I burn a 2.0 RC1 version to boot my server and install on HDD ?

  • You would download the ISO image for the pfSense 2.0 RC1 LiveCD/ installer, unzip it and burn it onto a CDR.  The rest is similar.

    It is extremely odd that you'd see Starting MS-DOS though.  How did you burn the image for 1.2.3?

  • Yes it is very Odd  ???

    But can you tell me which file for version 2.0 RC1 on the ftp download page, I should choose and then extract and burn to a CD/DVD, because I cant find any LiveCD installer for 2.0.

    I burn the 1.2.3 cd with Nero ver 8.

  • Start here and then go looking for a file called


    Where YYYYMMDD-HHMM is a date and time.
