installtion not possible !! Partion disks !! Failed to partition the seleted disk

  • When copying files, the Samba service failed and all shares gone. The restart of the SMB Service in the OMV Web Interface caused a log out from the Web interface. A log in was no longer possible, message: wrong user, wrong password. Try to fix it with omv-firstaid but it didn't work. After a reboot a lot of services failed on start up and the boot up process stop with the message: Beep after System start. (see attachment).


    A new installation stops with: !! Partition disks !! Failed to partition the selected disk ... after clicking continue the next error message appears: no roots file system ... (see attachment)


    I tried two different SSDs, I wiped the SSDs and treated them with fdisk and gpard. The installation is not possible and stop at the partitioning.


    The system is a TerraMaster F220, with 4 GB RAM, the SSD is attached on a USB port. The install medium is a 8 USB Stick.


    Any idea what I can do to install the OMV 5?


  • Have you seen this guide -> post ? (X64 standard build)

    Or this -> post ? (The guide for Alternate 64 bit build.)

    *You might want to unplug your data disks before rebuilding the SSD.*

    Note that the USB bride may be filtering SATA drive commands. You might try plugging the SSD into a SATA port, then use the 8GB USB stick to build it. Once build and checked, reinstall the SSD in the USB adapter.

  • I have see the guides. The data disk are unplugged when I install. I will try first the SATA install and the USB install, maybe ist works.


    BTW the alternative guide is linked to this post.


    === Update ===

    install with OMV6 beta is working, no partition issue. OMV6 is running. Same USB pen, same SSD and Hardware. :/

    Confused but it works.

    While I can't explain it (there would be a lot of questions and factors to sort through) this is a good development.

    OMV6 will be the standard soon so it's good to know that it works well with your hardware. You could consider this to be an early upgrade.
