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.
      OMV-Server: MoBo Fujitsu D3222-B12 (Q87 chipset/Intel i217 gigabit lan controller), Intel i5-4590S, 8GB-Ram@1600MHz, 1x512GB SSD Samsung 850 Pro (sda2 - 35GB system, sda4 (rest) - for work), 4x3TB WD Red's Snapraid w/ mergerfs, DVBSky v952v3, OMV 4.0.x (always latest) with backportkernel 4.13 (always latest), omv-extras-plugin (always latests), AutoShutdown-Plugin, PlexMediaServer, Emby Server, SMB-Shares, TVHeadendServer (stable release),

      BackupServer: Synology DS1010+ with 4GB Ram, 9TB@SHR (different hdd's), DSM 5.2-5967-2
    • 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/

      ehm, how do I actually create a Jessie UEFI image? mto boot and then install it on a UEFI drive?

      R.I.P. OMV you were an excelent NAS software but couldn't hold up with modern times booting terror from Micro$oft.
      You will find bootable ISO files on debian.org as ryecoaaron said in his post. Use etcher.io to make a bootable USB-Stick, boot in plain UEFI (not legacy) mode and you're done :thumbsup: I think there is no need for a dedicated UEFI omv ISO, keep coding on features and bugfixes, you awsome omv-guys <3
