I am using the Alix 2D13 as a pfSense firewall. Decided to upgrade to the latest version and having problems.
I decided to swap out compact flash cards, so I have the old CF card as a fallback incase of problems.
The new image won't boot. I get the following:
PC Engines ALIX.2 v0.99h
640 KB Base Memory
261120 KB Extended Memory
01F0 Master 848A SanDisk SDCFH-002G
Phys C/H/S 3875/16/63 Log C/H/S 968/64/63
And then nothing.
I could have a bad image, but checksums match. I could have loaded it improperly, but I've used 'dd' many times before.
I noticed one difference between the two CF cards.
Good: 01F0 Master 848A SanDisk SDCFB-2048
Bad: 01F0 Master 848A SanDisk SDCFH-002G
Could the newer card not be recognized properly by the bios?
Anything else to check?
