Problems with new install embedded version
I want to try an pfsense in an old Nortel Contivity 1010
I downloaded the embedded version pfSense-1.2-Embedded.img.gz
Verified MD , was OK
Unpacked it to pfSense.img
Tryed to dd it on an 128 MB card.
dd if=c:\temp\temp\pfSense.img of=\.\h: bs=1M –size --progress
Now my questions:
is it normal that dd stops with
31+0 records in
29+2 records out
Is the whole image written ?
I tryed this in the contivity and it can't boot. (boot error on console interface)
is the downloaded pfSense.img for an 128 MB card or other format ?
if pfSense.img is for an other format, do I need to resize it to 128 MB ?
if so, how to do it on an WIN XP machine.
Thanks for the answers !

I dont know about DD but you can just use "physdiskwrite" from http://m0n0.ch/wall to write the compressed image under windows to the CF.
The downloaded image needs a minimum 128 MB card. It can be more, but the additional space wont be used.
Take a look at the documentation.
This guide is for the WRAP but you can use it for you too (just ignore all the WRAP stuff)
Just tryed with "physdiskwrite" and it worked.
Much more simple !
