    Just a tiny tip to those who want to install pfSense using their thumb drive.

    Tools needed:
    1. pfSense's image file (pfSense-memstick.ima)
    2. Win32 Image Writer for creating a bootable live usb
    3. MobaLiveCD for testing purposes only.

    1. Insert the flash media
    2. Run and start Win32 Image Writer
    3. Select the file (pfSense-memstick,ima) and target device (flash drive).
    4. Click the "Write" button and wait until it's finish.
    5. For testing, open and run MobaLiveCD
    6. Select "Start directly from a bootable USB drive"
    7. Select the USB drive you want to boot from
    8. MobaLive will create a hard disk image for the virtual machine, Just select Yes and choose the path to save.
    9. It's now running and testing.

    Goodluck :)

    ano po naging problema sir?

    also, note ko lang po, once na na-write na yung file sa USB di mo maa-acces yung drive (viewing the files thru explorer) 'coz of iba ang kanyang partition type (Linux). you can directly test the USB using MobaLiveCD.

  4. pag nilagay ko na ung .img file
    tapos pag icliclick ko ung "Write" yan nakalagay
    Cannot be write daw

  5. kindly text me po if pwd
