I‘m trying to install OMV from a bootable USB to an older machine with an ASUS P5KPL main board.
The image was downloaded (5.1.1),
A stick was formatted to vfat,
I created a bootable USB stick (using the handy function of the context menu on Linux Mint),
tested the stick- it boots on other machines (Compaq Presario 6000 e.g.),
So the bootable image is ok.
But it won’t boot on this ASUS machine!
Went into the bios:
Can set boot order and selected USB as 1st boot option.
The machine does still not boot into the setup menu of OMV, just get a black screen.
When I boot the ASUS machine (there’s a Mint 17 on it at the moment), it goes straight into the existing OS and the USB is mounted and appears innocently as a /media drive!
Not sure where to go from here. Am I right in targeting the main board for this?
It all hangs on this machine not wanting to boot from USB, slightly frustrated!
