My goal is to upgrade my old NAS (Thecus N7700) with OMV. Sadly, the installer always fails
--- My Build / My Modifications ---
Similar to how this guy did it, I also replaced the internal storage and helped my self by ripping an old VGA-cable apart and plugging it directly into the mainboard of my N7700
Additionally, since I would like to run a current version of OMV, I upgraded to a new CPU supporting 64-bit architecture (Intel T7600)
--- My Hardware ---
- Thecus N7700:
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7600
- Storage: IDE 44-Pin DOM SSD 16GB
--- My problem ---
The debian installer always crashes for some reason... To see the behaviour, I recorded a small video:
Sometimes it happens more early in the install processs, some times even later. Its not really following any pattern, but it always fails like on the video. Also after at least 20 install-attempts, I was never able to complete the installer.
--- Analysis and Troubleshooting so far ---
The failure happens with "OMV5-installer", "OMV6-installer" and "native debian-net-installer"
I also tried to play with BIOS-Settings like: "Frame Buffer Size", "DVMT-Modes" and "VGA-Modes"
--> Similar to how this guy is doing it between 9:30 and 9:55 -> youtu.be/f2IvOeY00_Q?t=570
I also tried with putty over serial-console like "
I also tried with some installer-parameters like: "
Nothing helped so far
BUT! When starting a "debian-live-11.0.0-amd64-standard.iso" it runs perfectly fine. So the hardware should be compatible, just the installer seems to have problems. ?!?!?!?
I would be very glad to heare your thoughts. What could be the problem here? Do you have any ideas, how I could solve that?
Thank you very much in advance!
PS: Sure, I could just buy a new NAS, but are not these problems the reason why we are all here (pc enthusiasts)?
