Do you know the CPU supports the 64bit instruction set?
Maybe the BIOS needs to enable 64bit instruction support.
The startup output should display the CPU details and features, please the output from the pfSense shell command
from the line beginning
to and including the line
Here is a sample from my system:
CPU: VIA Samuel 2 (797.74-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "CentaurHauls" Id = 0x673 Family = 6 Model = 7 Stepping = 3
Features=0x803035 <fpu,de,tsc,msr,mtrr,pge,mmx>real memory = 268435456 (256 MB)</fpu,de,tsc,msr,mtrr,pge,mmx>
I expect there will be at least two features lines and no more than about 8 lines in the area of interest.
What happens when you try to boot the amd64 variant of pfSense?
yes, the cpu support 64bit
when i try to boot from amd64 cd not boot, just like is no cd inside, is boot from hdd
but same cd boot from other pc
was need to enable Hardware Virtualization in the ML350 BIOS.
thank your help.
