Let me try to search for some information for you. I will keep you post.
Thank you very much
I will wait your news
Did you find any solution? I have the exact same problem. Onboard LAN (1) has no mac address in BIOS and pfSense says "invalid mac address" to em1
PowerFlower, are you able to access the operating system? I would like to know if the LAN port #1 is working correctly.
Which is the current BIOS version of your system? Just in case, BIOS v0033 fixed an issue relate with the behavior of the LAN port under DOS.
