have spent past 4 days pulling my hair out, and now finally given up and decided to post for some help.
My setup is as follows:
MB - Intel DX58OG with i7-950 and 24Gb DDR3 Ram
HDD's - 2 x WD 4TB and 4 x WD 2TB's
First issue i ran into was the MB has 6 x Sata 2 ports and 2 x SATA3 with Raid for the SATA3 ports. After much head scratching i resided myself to the fact i wont use the SATA3 ports as OMV doesnt pick them up... (I tried for half a day)
that reduced me to only 6 Sata ports, which is why i want / NEED to install OMV onto USB or External HDD ( Also from what i have read, it makes cloning the OS so much easier! )
If i try installing OMV onto USB i get as far as installing GRUB, and then it fails ( Unable to install Grub) I have tried removing all HDD's so only devices are the USB Install media and the USB stick i plan on the OS being installed onto.
Have tried installing OMV onto external HDD , all seems well, until reboot, then get past grub and then its ends up in initramfs.
I have to admit, i am 100% stumped now .....
