HDD BIOS SETTINGS?? Install issues
I am having a bit of trouble getting pfsense to run once installed. I am using 1.2 beta 1 and it installs OK but gets into an endless loop once booting from HDD. I suspect that my bios and/or pfsense is detecting the wrong parameters etc. I have the latest bios in my motherboard. The HDD is http://www.provantage.com/seagate-st96812a~7SEGH010.htm and motherboard http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/mini_itx/epia_en/
My bios detects the correct size but different cylinder and heads. I have tried LBA also. If I select CHS and enter manualy, the size does not correspond. The same happens when I manualy select settings when formatting under pfsense If I manualy select parameters the size of the disk it says is only 7.8Gb or so. Should be 60Gb.
Any suggestions would be great! ;D
might help you out
Thanks. I'll give gag a go and see. I really don't want to buy another hdd as this one is brand new.
how will gag differ from the standard boot loader? In regards to slecting the correct disk geometry?
no luck with gag :-[
Just tried a sata hard drive and its all good. Bugger bought a new ide laptop drive for nothing.
