PfSense not booting after install, waiting for F1

  • Board apu1c4, with 16GB SSD, Bios: April 5 2014

    F1  pfSense

    F6  PXE

    without pressing the F1 key it will not continue.

    PS: If I press 'F1' it works fine.

    I found somewhere the following:

    /sbin/sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=16
    gpart set -a active -i /dev/ad0s1a ad0
    /usr/sbin/boot0cfg -s ad0s1a -v /dev/ad0
    /sbin/sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=0

    but I get errors since my HD is ad4
    gpart set -a active -i /dev/ad4s1a ad4        (gpart: Invalid value for 'i' argument)

    any ideas

  • What happens if you try a reinstall to that hardware.

  • never mind, just needed to wait for 20..30 seconds and it continued to boot.
