HP Proliant ML350 G5 and amd64 pfsense

  • hy

    i try to install pfsense 2.0.1 amd64 on HP Proliant ML350 G5 (intel xeon 1,6) but is not boot from amd64
    if i try with 1386 version everything is ok

    maybe amd64 not working on my server config?

    thank you

  • 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

    real memory

    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?

    the cpu is this:

    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.
