Post opnsense 18.1 cannot be installed
Hi,
I have the fitlet 2 with the 64 GB m.2 ssd and the LAN extension card. I managed to install opnsense 17.7 (based on FreeBSD 17.7), which did work (except that shutdown and reboot did hang - turning off the fitlet was necessary then). In order to fix this, I tried to install opnsense 18.1, which is based on FreeBSD 11.1. In fact installation is not possible, because the SSD is not detected by the system.
Do you have any ideas for me, what I could check?
Thanks for your help!

I had the same issue installing OPNsense v18.1.2_2. I was able to resolve it by doing the following. Took me three hours to figure this all out:

Quote:

Boot filet2 into its BIOS with USB installer plugged in.
1) Go to the boot options and make sure the USB installer is set to boot first.
2) Go to chipset > then i believe the last option, I think it is "South-something". There, go to SCC options, and disable the SD Card.
3) Save edits and exit. Computer will reboot.

For first booting into OPNsense, hold down the <ESC> key when you see the OPNsense menu come up. This will automatically bring up the loader prompt or you can just choose "Option #3" from the menu.

Step #1) when you see the "OK" prompt type the following:

set hint.hpet.0.clock=0 <press Enter afterwards>
set hint.sdhci_pci.0.disabled=1 <press Enter afterwards>
set hint.sdhci_pci.1.disabled=1 <press Enter afterwards>
set hint.ahci.0.msi=2 <press Enter afterwards>
boot <press Enter afterwards>

it should boot up fine now

Step #2) Once you have installed OPNsense, reboot without the USB installer, repeat STEP #1. Once you're at the main OPNsense menu, open a shell and add add the settings to /boot/loader.conf.local:

hint.hpet.0.clock=0
hint.ahci.0.msi=2
hint.sdhci_pci.0.disabled=1
hint.sdhci_pci.1.disabled=1

This will allow you to boot the filet2 in the future without having to go through step #1 everytime. Good luck.

You also should follow the instructions from the Fitlet2 wiki on what BIOS settings to change for FreeBSD.

This post covered everything I needed.
