installing omw to usb disk - shows white curser on bootup

  • Hi all,


    I have a HP micro server G7 where i have 4 disks in raid 5 and running omw on a usb stick.


    now i learned another of my post not long ago that using usb sticks is a no go.. so i bought a usb harddisk..


    I removed all the disk from the server and made a bootable usb with OMW on it. I pluged it and the usb harddisk, a samsung m3 something, in to the server and went through the installation..


    after that i restarted the server with only the usb hardisk in it.


    all i got during boot was a white curser blinking in the top left cornor..


    seem to remember this is a problem with where grub is installed or something..


    any help would be apriciated!!

  • Here is what I would try.


    Format system drive
    Disconnect all data drives and only leave usb installer and formated system drive.
    Install omv.
    reboot
    login to web gui.
    If successful power down through web gui
    reconnect your data drives and boot to bios.
    make sure you have your boot priorities set correctly
    reboot
    log in to web gui
    success!
