Cant mount root

  • i have put 2.0.1 on a CD and boot to it,

    loads most up till i get this message:

    Trying to mount root from cd9660:/dev/iso9660/pfsense

    not sure what to do ?

    prompt is sitting at mountroot>

  • use the boot from USB option at the first boot prompt (option 3 IIRC)

  • I wanted to post my solution to my mount root problem.  I have had the same issue whether I was installing pfsense or FreeNAS.  Both are freebsd based.  My solution to both  was to change the sata emulation from legacy to native in the bios.  That fixed both issues.
