Install won't work?

  • Hi all after reading a lot finally trying to install omv on my nas
    I'v got 4 qore amd64 cpu 8Gb ram and 5x2TB hdd's for it,run other os on it and that worked but not stable,now im trying to install omv from my dvd and with 1 hdd connected but it won't install.
    I can see loading system then some text starting with linux..... and so on,then i keep a blinking cursor and nothing happening.
    I got my bios that it boots with first dvd and then the hdd,what can be going wrong here?
    Please advice so i can make everything up and running tonight.

  • tried everything i could think of but still no go,the dvd won't boot/start but with several other os like zfsguru/freenas/nas4free it boots up just fine,maybe anyone can tell me what the problem might be?
    Downloaded the amd64 iso cause got an 64 bit supporting cpu from amd.

  • Did you try to install the Debian 6.0.7 netinstall (minimum) image?


    Please give it a try. If this works we can tell you how to install OMV afterwards, because OMV is basicly a Debian Squeeze system.

  • When installing were all the data drives disconnected from the motherboard and the only connected drive the one to install the OMV system on? OMV works from a system drive and separate data drives. After OMV is installed onto a system drive, then power down and connect the data drives.

    and is it possible to install the os in that time?
    if yes i am going for it
    should i install debian with 1 hdd connected or al my hdd's?

  • Just your internal, yes it should be possible to install within 30 to 60 mins, depending on settings, speed of your pc and internet connection.


    Tip: Just use the standard partition format if asked. All other things should be clear.

  • And I thought for a minute that it could go the easy way. Give it some more minutes, if its not working after ten minutes:


    Abort install and boot to the partitioning, do it manually (edit the standard scheme). Try Ext4 for the system disk. Ask if you need more advices.
