Installing pfSense on a SATA Hard drive



  • Hi there,

    I wanna use pfSense as a perimeter firewall for my OpenVPN. I got version 2.0.1, my intention is to install (full installation) from a LiveCD.

    My hardware spec:
    Intel Core i5-2500 CPU @ 3.30 GHz, 3.26 GB RAM, 500 GB SATA HD, 1 OnBoard NIC and 1 Spare NIC

    The error I am getting is:

    The installer could not find any disks suitable for installation(IDE or SCSI) attached to this computer. If you wish to install pfSEnse on an unorthodox storage device, you will have to exit to a LiveCD command prompt and install it manually, using the file /README as a guide.
    Please assist, I dont know where to find /README



  • try to change sata mode on bios.

    There are also some threads on this forum about sata disks, try to search.



  • Thanks, I changed on the BIOS and the installation continued. I removed the LIVEcd but it seems stuck on the configurations it doesnt get to the web interface
