How to bootup pfsense without cdrom?
i have today a fully working setup ,but i want to remove the cdromdrive from the system.
the harddrive is master and cdromdrive is slave on a ide-channel.
if i remove the cdromdrive pfsense wont start =( ,says something about mount on a promt: ?!?
(i have a nehemiah mini-itx mobo)
That sounds like the order of the devices changed. Are you sure the cdrom that you remove is not the master?
This is normal.
You really should have installed with the CDROM as SLAVE.
Either way, edit /etc/fstab and change ad1s1 to ad1s0 and reboot without the CDROM.
BACK UP YOUR CONFIGURATION BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING, HOWEVER. Sorry to blurt that out but I cannot emphasize enough about having proper backups before changes like this.
okey DMESG says also: ?!?
ad2: 9768MB <seagate st310014a="" 3.09="">at ata1-master UDMA33
acd0: CDRW <philips cdrw1610a="" 0.010000="">at ata1-slave UDMA33</philips></seagate>
LOL. You might want to take the time to fix the channels, drive types (master and slave) and simply reinstall. This is quite messy!
BUT! If you must, change /etc/fstab ad2s1 to ad2s0
