Weird error on bootup



  • Hi

    I have a nokia IP330 which I read a lot of people have successfully installed pfsense on.

    So i pulled the IDE drive from it and installed onto a spare pc, booted pfsense (tried 1.2.3 and 2.0)and installed onto the harddrive, the only option I changed was to choose 'embedded no vga' as its a console device.

    I put the drive back in and watch it start booting, it gets past the 1,2,3,4,5 menu and then i get:

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad2s1a

    I know the hardrive is ok as i did a normal 'pc' installed and it worked fine.

    Anyone know what I can do ? The full log is below:

  • ok found a fix.

    for some unknown reason pfsense was trying to boot from a non existant partition, the installer somehow got the wrong name.

    I forced it to the correct by:

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad2s1a

    Do you want to set up VLANs first?
    If you are not going to use VLANs,

    So if anyone else has this error its nothing you are doing it is a pfsense bug!

    All thats left is to correct fstab and its ok.</empty></fstype></device></device></fstype></empty></fstype></device></device></fstype>
