Is it possible to run pfsense on nothing but a usb flash drive? CD-less,diskless



  • I've written the embedded image to a usb flash drive and booted it on an intel pc with no cdrom or hdd.  It just hangs at the loader.conf, I'm guessing because it doesn't find any medium to write to (other than itself, which would be nice).

    Any thoughts, links or …?

    Thanks.



  • embeddeds have the local console on com1 once they start booting. Check the serial console if you get some output there.
