    Quote from mochi: “ I am hoping OMV will add a better installer to the image you get here. ” Hey Mochi - yes I didn't realize it actually failed to install! Yes, agreed it would be helpful if omv gave you a little more control here. For example, if…

    Hey gderf, Thanks again for your reply! 1. Got curious, can confirm that solution worked for me as well. As I hadn't yet disabled the swap via the flash memory plugin, I got a boot delay looking for 4e98474e-c52b-42b3-996c-d46e6ffbb5b9. Once flash…

    @ koken - The problem I had was I couldn't finish the install because the installer doesn't allow me to edit the partitions myself. As soon as I click yes to the partitions it recommends, it immediately starts installing the OS and the disk I have…

    That mb has three pcie slots. One dell perc h200 can give you 8 sata ports plus the ones in the mb. There are other sas controllers that can supply 16 ports.

    If you are concerned about the disk having a swap partition, but don't want to give up swap completely, you can run a swap file on the OS partition and then delete the swap partition. Google for how to do that. But like I said, I have only 16GB of RAM,…

    If the boot fails, the presumption is that the OS isn't running, so neither will the ssh daemon.

    Quote from gderf: “I was able to solve that by using the info in answer #1 of this post ” Thanks for your reply, gderf. I actually saw a suggesting like this and didn't want to try again but thanks I suppose this one is the answer! I *think* I…

    I wonder if this is kind of similar to the issue I just dealt with. Have you tried booting on a system-rescue-cd.org usb, then using gparted to *shrink* the swap partition? This worked for me, but I would recommend KEEPING SOMETHING for the swap (I…

    I verify that OMV is up and running by SSHing into it. My OMV machine is headless and not in a convenient to reach location. Not using swap here never cause the system to not boot. What that did cause was a delayed boot because the "mdadm no arrarys"…
