full boot only possible after enter ufs:/dev/da0s1a



  • I have a problem to get pfsense to boot on my HP N36L Server
    The Memstick image does work and boot fine

    the nanbsd image, regardless which one i choose (written with physdiskwrite)
    the kernel does boot but does hang on mounting root

    after typing in ufs:/dev/da0s1a on the "hanging point" pfsense finished booting and i could setup my nics and Ip

    i checked the loader.conf (did /etc/rc.conf_mount_rw first) and it is empty

    where do I configure the root for slice 1 and 2 ?

    Any idea ?



  • when i put the da0S1a as default root in the loader.conf under /boot/default it works and pfsense does boot
    strange

    Edit

    selecting Option 3 (boot from USB) on the boot menu did the trick not the change on the entry in the file

    How do I change the default entry on the menu ?
