    • Graphics issue when starting install

      Hi,

      when I boot the install stick ans select "install" from the Grub menu, the switching to the text mode screen fails - the text "screen" shows up multiple times in the upper area of the full screen, see attached photo and the video from this link:(Link to Video / Google Drive).
      Similar happens when I select "advanced" first and manually start the instllaltion. Also changing the "vga"-Parameter did not suceed.
      The OMV install iso is openmediavault_4.1.22-amd64.iso, checksum verified ok.
      The system is a Fujitsu D3641-S Mainboard with a Pentium G5420T.

      However, I think this is merely not an OMV, but rather an Grub issue, and the best way to install is to use another PC for the 1st install ?

      Regards, Sven

      You could either check if a standard debian installation works or just install it in another PC. Then just build it into that one.

      It is OMV version 4.1.22, amd64. That seems to be the lastest stable version.
      I also forgot to mention that I upgraded the Maiboard to the lastest BIOS version.

      I would call a priest. But in all seriousness I would try reformatting the install media completely rather then quickly, re-download the iso and use etcher to to write the image. I would also try to use a different usb port. Hope it helps.
    • Hi thanks for the advices, meanwhile I did that more or less, e.g. verifying checksums, verifying the stick, using another USB-port... yet nothing helped. What makes me assuming that the stick is all right is that everything works fine on another computer.
      Well, I contacted the MB manufacturer yesterday, but no answer yet (it an expensive industrial MB - they should answer me), let's see.

      Meanwhile, before turning to spritual means, I connected the system drive to that other computer and performed the inital installation there. This resulted in a running system, well more or less, I faced and am still facing other problems, but I will open another thread.

    • Just for infirmation, for those who are interested: after setting
      BIOS > Advanced > PCI Subsystem Settings > "Above 4G Decoding" to Disabled

      booting the OMV 4.1.22 installation stick was successfull.
      Booting OMV 5.05 installation stick was also successfull.

      I consider this thread as "solved".
