    • New install on system with NVME as system drive, need help

      Hi all,

      Im trying to get my NAS migrated to my new system but after trying for 2 days to get it up and running im out of ideas.

      I want to run the OS from my NVME drive, all 8 sata connectors are occupied and i do not want to run the system from a USB stick!
      As many other before me grub fails to install using OMV install.

      i tried installing debian jessie (kernel 3.16 i can not find a source with 3.19) and add backports to it to manualy during installing backporting grub 2 to it. no luck :(

      need some help on getting OMV running on my NVME drive..

    • I don't understand how thats going to solve my issue?

      I am manually installing debian using jessie netinst 3.16...
      all is going well, so it detects my nvme drive the problem lies with trying to het grub installed.

      im skipping the grub install step in the expert graphical install mode of linux and call up the prompt to try to get grub installed.


      installing Deabian stretch solves the grub problem but then i cannot install OMV anymore.

    • i havent tried it yet as im on my work now, but i was thinking about it and asked the question upfront.

      I'm not a experienced Linux user so doing manual commands and diagnosing them takes me a lot longer.

      Edit:
      I just quickly read the guide . and reading it make me conclude that initially it would end up at the same thing and thats grub installation failing.
      Wright now i cannot paste the error but will do when im at home..

    • I'll write down the steps i took just in case some one else is having the same issue's


      Step 1:
      I downloaded Debian jessie (kernel 3.16) from:
      debian.org/releases/jessie/

      step 2:
      Made abootable USB sick.

      In the installer boot menu

      > Advanced options
      > Graphical Expert install


      No additional installer components added.

      NVME drive was normally detected by the system.
      At partition disks i chose
      Guided - use entire disk
      NVME drive shows up as /dev/nvme0n1

      When installing the kernel it showed 2 options i chose linux-image-3.16.0.4-amd64 to stick to the 3.16 kernel.

      At configure the package manager i checked the box for backported software.
      On software selection the only box i cheked is the standard system utilities.

      skipped the install grub boot load on a hard disk and go to execute a shell

      executed the following commands:

      Shell-Script

      1. cd /target
      2. mount -t proc proc proc/
      3. mount --rbind /sys sys/
      4. mount --rbind /dev dev/
      5. mount --rbind /run run/
      6. chroot . /bin/bash

      Grabed the backported bootloader:



      Shell-Script

      1. apt-get update
      2. apt-get -t jessie-backports install grub-efi
      3. update-grub
      4. grub-install
      but at the install grub-efi i run into issues cause i do net get the prompt setup but it shown me that falled back to noninteractive..

      at the last command i get the error :

      This is where i get stuck..


      Edit:
      I installed teh package grub-pc-bin

      and now its saying:
      grub-install: error: install device isnt specified..
