Pfsense on dell gx260… help with booting
i can install and run pfsense fine, its getting it to boot that is the problem.
the computer is a dell gx260 w/256mb of ram and 2ghz pentium 4.
i have pfsense installed on to a 1gb usb flash drive, the only way i can get it to boot is by manually entering the boot menu and booting from the "utility partition".
same if its a reboot.
the bios is set to boot from the usb device first; even from the boot menu if i select the usb device, it doesn't find a bootable device.
this gets old when everytime i need to reboot the system, i need to connect a monitor and keybaord >:(
did you try to setup with and without bootblocks already? also using the grub bootloader is an option to test out.
yup, tried that.. no good :(
i have three options when asked about the boot "stuff"
what do those three options do and mean?
Make sure install boot blocks is checked. Check install grub.
