PfSense nanoBSD halts on boot
I am new to pfsense and I encountering a very strange issue on boot.
NanoBSD on USB Stick
When the system boot, I can see the pfSense Boot Option Menu. If I do nothing, or press #1 Boot Multi User or #2 Boot Single User the system just halts. No messages at all.
However, if I do the following:
Press: #3 [Esc]ape to loader prompt
And press enter after boot-conf finishes the system boots just fine.
Everything else seems to be working fine. I was able to set both ipv4 and v6 over PPPoE and route the traffic successfully.
Any ideas how to fix the boot?
I tried just typing boot on Loader prompt and the system boots fine. Meaning that there is no need to run boot-conf.
Any idea what can cause this, or how ti simulate that behavior during boot automatically?
No-one? Not even a tip?
Is it possible to make the default boot option the Loader Prompt?
Looks like I've solved the issue.
In my case I had to disable beastie from boot.
My /boot/loader.conf.local is as following
Already rebooted few time and works like a charm.
Also I encountered the same issue using USB HDD and Full Pfsense install -> did it to troubleshoot. That makes me lean towards some wiered USB controller issue and beastiie.
