Kernel panic on embedded install

  • I am running the current release of pfSense (pfSense-2.0.2-RELEASE-1g-amd64-nanobsd_vga-20121207-2239.img) on a Dell Inspiron 530S running some Pentium Dual-Core CPU with 4gb of memory and get a kernel panic on start up. The machine does not have a serial port.

  • Make sure you have the latest BIOS on it.

    If it does and it still panics, your best bet is probably to try 2.1 since it has a newer base OS and see if that behaves better.

  • Thanks for the reply. The machine does have the most recent bios installed. On the snapshot for Mar 4th it boots fine, thanks again
