SuperMicro D525 - Installing Error cannot boot
Trying to install pfsense on 1U SuperMicro d525 and I'm getting
"Stopped at 0xc56c: ***error reading from address c56c"
I thought it was a bad cd so I tried another with same results.
I also see
Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode
cpuid=0; apic id = 00
any help would be appreciated
Anyone have issues installing pfsense to a SuperMicro D525?
I read on the pf forum that many have pfsense installed on this same hardware.
Could be completely unrelated. ::)

I have one, lots and lots of others do too.
That'd be my guess.
sorry for the late response. I had to step away from this project for a while. I changed the ram and still no go. I have added the imagebin image of my screen. hopefully someone can help me come up with a workaround.

What version of pfSense? (Old operating systems don't always work on "new" hardware.)
What is displayed when you type "bt" then tap the Enter key? (bt should display a stack trace.)
Have you run a memory diagnostic program such as Memtest86+ on that hardware and memory? It is possible (but unlikely) you tried two bad memory sticks. It is possible (but unlikely) there is a manufacturing defect on your motherboard leading to problems on certain memory accesses.
If Memtest86+ completes a least a couple of passes reporting zero errors you can be highly confident the combination is good.
Im running Pfsense 2.0.1. Should I be running maybe the i386 version?
Ran the mem test a few times and all clean.
Been reading and others have disbaled HT and ACPI and some havent. Whats is the normal failsafe settings, to disable or to enable?

Did 2 installations today with X7SPE-HF-D525. Went as planned. Any chance you are using a USB CD/DVD drive? Be sure to select USB installation at the menu.

I've only used i386 on those. It's possible that's some kind of hardware-specific driver issue that only exhibits itself on 64 bit. I'd try i386. I don't think those support > 4 GB RAM anyway IIRC so it doesn't matter which you use.

That would result in a mountroot failure rather than a kernel panic so I don't think that's the cause.
Just Installed pfsense 2.0.2 without a hitch. I think next time I will go with an i7 setup.
Thank you guys for the help.
