Basic Installation of Pfsense
Good night ,
I just wanna ask how to install Pfsense by using flashdisk, and then i can import that installation to the Harddisk in alix board. The problem was while i had already plug the Flashdisk r, the BIOS could not boot that flashdisk directly. and i got something wrong with the interfaces, there was grub.. What is grub and how to solve it???
I dont know how to fix it. I hope any guys could give some solution of this problem. Thank you.
Are you actually using a hard disk or a compact flash card in the Alix?
To boot from a USB flash drive there may be a BIOS USB legacy mode that needs to be enabled. And maybe some additional related settings such as boot devices and boot order.
I know this is the case on the old Dell Notebook I run pfSense on.
The tinyBIOS on the Alix is not like other standard bioses. It's not possible to boot from USB on many models AFAIK.
The easiest way to install to a real hard drive is to do it on another box and then transfer it to the Alix.
Are you using mSATA and flash memory card ?
Why not loading the image directly on the disk and booting directly from ?
