I have installed the compact flash and when booting it says this:
F1 - PfSense
F2 - PfSense
F6 - PXE
What is the difference between the F1 and F2 boot options?
I assume you are running the NanoBSD image?
The NanoBSD images have two boot slices (partitions) and a shared configuration file. When you update your system it will overwrite one slice and then switch to boot from it. That way, if there is a problem, you can switch back to the original slice. F1 and F2 are the two slices you can choose to manually boot from.
Yes I am running NanoBSD version.
I see so it's like a backup version… that's very clever and I'm sure very useful in the event of problems or for testing.
Thank you for clarification. :)
