SG-2220 won't boot

  • Hi!

    My brand new SG-2220 booted only twice.
    But now it hangs ( serial console is working):

    SeaBIOS (version SageBIOS-20150715_105142-localhost.localdomain)
    iPXE ( 00:14.0 C100 PCI2.10 PnP PMM+7FB80910+7FAE0910 C100
    iPXE ( 00:14.1 C200 PCI2.10 PnP PMM 7FB80910 7FAE0910 C200
    iPXE ( 00:14.2 C300 PCI2.10 PnP PMM 7FB80910 7FAE0910 C300
    iPXE ( 00:14.3 C400 PCI2.10 PnP PMM 7FB80910 7FAE0910 C400
    Press F12 for boot menu.
    F1  pfSense
    F6 PXE
    Boot:  F1

    Any suggestions?

    many thanks

  • I have similar issues. I just received my brand SG-2220 but after installing PFSense it doesn't boot past the PFSense boot menu.
    However I do get past the bootloader, then it boots Multiuser and then it ends with "booting…".

    I've tried several options with the help of but after the commands below it stays at the bootloader prompt.

    set console=comconsole
    boot -v

    I have the feeling it boots because after a few seconds the terminal freeze the nice LEDs go off one by one.

  • I solved my problem with the help of the OPNSense manual, at the bootloader is have set```
    set comconsole_port=0x2F8

    After booting go into the shell and add```
    set comconsole_port="0x2F8"
    ```and save the file.

  • If you save those changes into a file named – loader.conf.local -- it will survive pfSense updates.
    The file does not exist so create one like this ee /boot/loader.conf.local

    So use ee or similar editor and add your console changes and save.

  • Those look similar to what is found here. Are you talking regular pfSense or the ADI version. I would think the ADI version has those covered..
