Unable to install into harddisk using USB Stick Installer

  • I'm trying to install pfsense into harddisk using the latest AMD64 memstick 2.1 snapshot, but always stuck at 36% when running cpdup utility.  ???
    The workaround is I'm using the AMD64 memstick 2.0.1 release and then upgrade the firmware into the latest snapshot.

    It may be something specific to your hardware. I just used the 2.1 memstick a couple days ago and it worked fine.

    We have seen that before, and it's usually something wonky with particular storage controllers and/or drivers for them.

  • I use Gigabyte GA-P61-S3 (Intel H61 Chipset) with Intel Core i3-2120 and 2GB DDR3 of memory. I also can't install from pfsense iso distribution. Always get error when mounting the root partition in CD drive.
