I tested it with a blind install, is the same shit I press y enter and the system reboots. Nice work Sophos you are number one in Scrap software
In reply to ReneeH:
I would say that if it works for others it may not be Sophos fault necesarily. It could be though. If I were you I would try using a different SSD. It could be a matter of the OS not detecting the SSD or something similar. Give it a try. If trying a blind install didn't work I would stick to the normal console install. I used Putty by the way.
Im using it on APU on few sites, my home, my parrents, friends...Everywhere it works just fine, installation since 9.4 is not blind, console on serial port is enabled, so installation procedure is thru putty or whatever serial client easy...
APU with 64GB SSD, at home running all services and filtering, connected AP55C, AP15C and one AP15.
Is there any chance to install XG from a USB Stick? I've been trying this for some time and I can see the system coming up, asking me to press F10 to enter the boot menu (which I can get into) and than I can choose from four options. It doesn't matter though if I choose to boot from USB tick, the systems starts from the built-in msata hard disk.
Edit: I just tried the same procedure as before (all hardware was exactly the same) but I used the UTM image. Now it works. So it has to something with the XG image...
In reply to TimBenkert:
XG on APU works fine, without any issue, you need to change terminal baud speed for installation, APU runs 115200 and i think XG at 38400...

I've been using an APU for my UTM 9.x in the past, always had hard times with no serial console but I've read this is now solved, GREAT!Tough, I've now moved my UTM setup on a ESXi host and i'm not really looking backwards, snapshots, easy migration with fallback etc..
Did you guys ever made some performances testings? i'd wonder how an APU compares to the lower SG HW appliances from Sophos.Cheers,Long life to UTM, tried XG for 10 mins and gave up.M.
My installation experiences with Sophos UTM and Sophos XG on the APU2C4 board:
Forgive my newbie-ness but I am trying to do the blind install of Sophos UTM9 on a PC that only has HDMI/DVI-D connections (install doesnt work on the machine with only those connections) and read through this post and cant find (need instructions) on how to do the serial install. Can someone please post their instructions to do this on the hardware I want to use below?

In reply to Jeff Siegel:
- PC with serial connector
- putty (google that, you'll find it)
- serial cable (looks a bit like VGA cable, but connectors have 2 rows of pins instead of 3)
- connect the APU and your computer
- go to hardware manager and look for the COM Port the APU got assigned
- start putty and connect to this COM Port using the baud rates mentioned in this thread.
Thanks for that. Questions though..
The machine I want to install sophos on (mentioned in my post) has no serial ports. I can use a laptop that has a serial port and I have a serial to serial cable as well as a serial to USB cable.
So I am assuming I start on the laptop and then power up the 'destination' machine. Connect to the destination machine's COM port through the laptop (using putty) at the recommended baud rate......then what?
the Sophos UTM work fine on the APU2D4.
How you can install the system on the APU, I have described in a post.
