Newbie: General protection fault while booting LiveCD

  • Hi there!

    I'm completely new to pfSense and so I tried to boot the system from the LiveCD for the first time.
    But…. General protection fault while in kernel mode....

    The system is a Shuttle Barebone XS35 with an Intel Atom CPU (D510 @1.66GHz). 2GB RAM and a 250GB SATA disk. (
    The DVD-ROM is external and connected via USB.

    What could be a possible rease for this fault?
    What can I do to get the system running?

    Thansk a lot for your help and answers.

    Have you tried the USB memstick image instead of the CD?

    Either way, in order to say anything we'd need a capture of the panic message, a picture or some other way.

    If you get a db> prompt, type "bt" there and capture that output also
