  • maby a hardware related problem.

    Try thoses tests in the following order and stop if you find someone guilty of your problems.

    test hard drive with mhdd (if sata, must be set to "as ide" in bios instead of "ahci")
    test memory with Memtest (and shake memory dimms while testing) the test should not stop as you shake the dimms. if it stops, use contact cleaner (DeoxIT)
    install windows on the workstation (to be sure the machine is working fine)
    clear the cmos
    Try another cdrom drive
    burn the disc again
    reinstall PfSense with default settings
    finally, give us an update.


  • If it happens again, look in /var and maybe /tmp. You should be able to use the console menu option 8 to get to a command prompt. There is likely to be some file/s filling up the space. If you can find what big file/s there are, then report back and we can then try to work out what happened to cause it.
