Got mine today.. been playing around for a while.

First, the heat sink issue has to be dealt with.  Unfortunately, I only
got one case for three boards (think circuit board art motif), and I'm
worried about overheating without a case and the heat dissipation.

Second, it was a headache to update the BIOS to the April 1 version

I used the gooze.eu method with syslinux, and of course since it
decompresses on boot, the easiest route is to put the .rom on another
media, like an SD card.


And in wonderful true standards fashion, "failing" seems to mean
success.  When does 1 mean 0. . .


I assume it flashed correctly, as it seems to boot fine with:

Build date: Apr  1 2014

I only tried pfSense off a couple of SD cards several times and was
always stuck at:

Booting from Hard Disk...
Booting from 0000:7c00

1  pfSense
2  pfSense

Boot:  1

Each time with multiple cards.

I am devoid of the fortitude to continue with this venture tonight.  I
think I have the right version of pfSense with
pfSense-2.1.1-RELEASE-4g-amd64-nanobsd.img.gz, but at this point, I'm
looking to jump back in tomorrow.
