USB/CD installer Bootloop



  • Hi there guys,

    I'm new to the forum so please advice me if I'm posting this in the wrong place …
    So back to business.. I've been trying to install PFSense 2.2.4 on my HP 6005 PRO MicroTower
    It has an AMD Athlon II X2 B26, Which is supposed to be compatible ... But everytime I try to Boot from the Live CD or Memstick it says "Attempting to Boot from CD or USB" for about a second and then it resets to the HP Post Screen again ... I've trying to figure this out for quite a while now.. I've tried everything including changing my SATA options from AHCI to IDE and so on ... Tried using a different USB for the install and that didn't work ... Here's the thing, When I use the same USB on another PC like my New Laptop, It works no issues what so ever ... I really want to try PFSense since I'm done with using regular Routers as they drop my internet connection way too much ... I've had to settle for Untangled right now, but I've heard PFSense is much Lighter and better ... Any one else facing this issue ?



  • Did you download the correct ISO for your hardware? (aka: AMD64 and not i386)
