Netgate C2758 Stuck on System Initializing Screen



  • While I'm sure there isn't much to be done here, I figure i'll ask either way and exhaust my resources. I have a Netgate C2758 that is stuck in the "system Initializing screen" I get no errors. and no response from anything. I don't hear a post though I'm not sure I ever did. This is definitely very early in the boot process. There is no activity on the HDD LED and the system seems to just freeze. Just looking to see if anyone has had this issue or can point me in the right direction.

    Thank you in advance



  • Netgate C2758

    Register your device at netgate and mail to their support please there fore none of us
    is able  to help you here in the forum I think it is better to go by the real support either
    of this forum, because this is more a user to user forum as I see it right.

    This device ships with CentOS 7 and you might be installing pfSense in your way than on the
    SSD. Perhaps, only perhaps I mean there was something false with your installation on the SSD?



  • Yeah that's not even getting through the POST to attempt to boot the OS. Get in touch via support if you haven't already.



  • It's worth checking if there's faulty USB thing plugged in maybe, which pauses POST process (like some USB stick, or keyboard, or mouse, etc.). I'd also unplug IPMI too.

    Yeah that's a good idea, boot it up with only the power and VGA plugged into it and see what happens (hopefully would have been suggested via support).
