    The Background:
    My box is a HP workstation
    CPU is a P4
    RAM, 4GB
    3ware Escalade SATA control card
    Inter Pro 1000 MT dual server card

    I got the image from the FREENAS download page
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/fre...FreeNAS-i386-embedded-0.7.2.6694.img/download

    this is the 32-bit version, because the P4 is a 32bit CPU

    I wrote the image to the USB drive with Physdiskwrite
    no issues in this

    The problem:
    after my usb drive is created I plug it in, and boot off the USB drive
    Then there is an error message

    "CPU doesn't support long mode"

    from all I read online this happens when you have a 64 bit image running on a 32 bit system

    In my case however
    I have the 32 bit image on a 32 bit system

    I am a noobie here, so please help, and be gentle

    Thanks,

    You are right, I don`t know why it fails, try http://sourceforge.net/projects/freenas/files/FreeNAS-7-Stable/FreeNAS-i386-LiveCD-0.7.2.6694.iso/download

    and post your problem in the 0.7 version of forums: http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/freenas/index.php


    If you do not have CD reader to install the full version of FreeNAS, you can extrac the file FreeNAS-i386-embedded.gz that must be the same img that you use ( if is not the same , perhaps this was the problem), simply rename it to FreeNAS-i386-embedded.img

    live dirsk didn't work

    I downloaded the i386 live drive you said

    however when I boot off it I get the same error

    "cpu doesn't support long mode"

    I read online that a intel P4 cpu it compatible with FreeBSD 7 and FreeNAS 7

    does anyone know if this is correct?

    any other thought?
