    Hey! This is by far the best tutorial around on how to do this! There’s a tiny bit which I had to do slightly different though: when creating the initial VM on Proxmox, I had to use the IDE hard drive with caché Write back instead of Default (no caché). If I didn’t, the LiveCD refused to boot up properly both with with pfSense 2.1.5 or pfSense 2.2.4. Anyways, thanks a lot for taking time to share your knowledge with everyone else! Keep it up! Greetings from Buenos Aires…

    Also, it would be nice to have instructions on how to enable VirtIO Ballooning for efficient memory allocation on pfSense.

      Hi Pepin!

      Thank you for the kind words! I have updated the article to include VirtIO Ballooning.

        Hi Joe! It seems the VirtIO drivers are already included in pfSense’s 2.2.4 kernel, since I was able to set up VirtIO NICs out of the box, so to speak.

    That’s good to know. When I did this tutorial I was using pfSense version 2.1.5. Makes it even easier now to virtualize pfSense with VirtI0. Thanks Pepin!
