OMV 3 on UEFI

    • OMV 3.x
    • I've never tried it but just follow the normal installation routine. Create a thumb drive installer (how-to is on the homepage of OMV) and boot from it. Then you can see the windows for entering all the necessary informations.
      I would suggest to back up your system drive in case something goes wrong or, just replace it with another unused one, which I would do.

    • There is no mention how to do a UEFI boot installation medium.

      I use Linux already and don't have a problem to create a bootabel USB drive.

      I read an older tutorial, but thye wanted you to use Jessie as stable OS and install OMV after the install, would that still work with Debian 9 (stable)?

      No. OMV 3.x only works on Debian 8 Jessie. You should be able to install Jessie on efi though

      Would "Debian-firmware-8.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso" be OK as install medium?
      I would use a newer release like 8.9 - look here - cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/archive/
