RESOLVED - Install on Intel DN2800MT

  • I am a noob and this is my very first attempt with a pfsense install and I am facing problems

    Intel DN2800MT board with 2x2 GB RAM
    Intel SSD 40GB
    Jetway Dual Intel I350 GbE LAN controller installed on board
    Azurewave 802.11 b/g/n - AR5B95 Wifi adapter

    What I have done:
    Formatted a USB stick using Fat32
    Downloaded pfSense-memstick-2.0.3-RELEASE-amd64.img.gz
    Extracted file using 7-zip
    Downloaded win32DiskImager
    Created bootable USB device
    Booted fine from USB device

    But now I am facing the "Welcome to pfsence" where I have to select from 8 menu items. I tried to chose 1 Boot pfsense (default) or 3 Boot pfsense using USB device , but everytime I just see some "garbage" characters on the bottom line of the screen.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.




    I just read my own post and realized I downloaded an amd64 image.

    How embarrassing

  • Downloaded right image and installed to hdd without any real problems (besides a little VGA mixup)

  • I'm using the 64-bit build (2.1, not 2.0.3) on my DN2800MT, no issues at all.
