LiveCD installation Problem Pfsense Menu to install to HD will not come up



  • Can someone please help me its been a while since I used Pfsense and now I am trying to install it again on a new box I built.

    I have an embedded card on the motherboard and an external ethernet card. When I boot up off the CD I notice a some type of BIOS error but it goes so fast i can't really catch the follow error.

    Once I select 1 for Pfsense (default) it goes thru its process and does nothing towards the end. If I hit enter.. all I get is the below information

    Please help Thank You. ??? ???

    Looks like a debug prompt after a kernel panic. Without knowing exactly what was on the screen at the time of the panic it's impossible to say what caused it.

    Most likely it's some hardware incompatibility. Knowing more about your new hardware will also help.



  • Here is my hardware info:

    Realtek semiconductor RTL 8111/8168B PCIe Gigabit

    Intel 82541PI Gigabit ethernet controller

    Motherboard just updated the BIOS to the latest, Motherboard model M5A78L-M LX Plus

    FYI, what a mission to get the image pic on here because of size limitation.. but let me know if this works.. thank you..
