I reconnected the DVD drive in my main computer. Tried burning a DVD, failed. Tossed the cheap discs and tried with a verbatim.
Booted to DVD, installed. Ejected disc and rebooted. Same result, same error.
I will try with a different USB drive tomorrow.
I did not check the back plate.
Yes, it reset the bios. I enabled legacy Sata support and set boot order.
After losing USB support I picked up a PS/2 keyboard before noticing that the ML110 G6 doesn't have a PS/2 port.
I cleared the CMOS with the System configuration switch on the system board.
It seems that my USB keyboard has been disabled...
I removed all HDDs during this process so they are not listed.
I read that this is recommended.
I have confirmed USB as the boot device and set the option for SATA legacy.
Legacy USB is disabled.
I posted this earlier
Yes, those are the three screens I see if I don't select any options.
I tried selecting F11 and USB and it went to the same menu.
Go back one step to my last post and get the system to boot from the USB.
I think I've seen this thread before and it isn't very helpul as it is written for someone that is already familiar with Linux and grub.
It skips the steps that I'm asking for help with.Quote
During boot at Grub screen, press ESC to stop the countdown and then press e. There you can edit the mount point. In my case it was sda1. Press F10 to boot.
What is a Grub screen? Is that the Grub rescue screen?
I Googled Grub screen and I don't see anything similar during post.
How do I edit a mount point?
Is that the ls (fd0) = failure reading sector 0x2?
Thanks Geaves, I looked around in the Bios to change book order.
The machine has a raid card but I don't think the drives are connected to it.
I read that is depends on the letter in the model, some can't do raid, can only do RAID, or can do both?
Yes, you have to change the boot device in grub then update grub have a look here
I've searched USB to USB install and seen that this is not an uncommon issue and I understand that the system is likely trying to book from the install USB which is removed instead of the OS USB.
I don't understand much else as I don't have much experience with Linux.
After the system says "Grub rescue" - is that "logged in on the console as root"?Quote
Easy one: just start a console on the finally running system, log in as root/get root rights and use the build in tools that the grub software provides for baking there own configuration cake:
Simply run this one command:
How do I get root access?
I've tried some of the commands but it keeps returning "Unknown command".
I've been reading up on grub error and may have made a little progress.
The ls command returned a bunch of drives, so I restarted with all the storage drives pulled out.
The ls command returns (hd0) (hd0,msdos1) (fd0) (fd1)
ls (hd0,msdos1) returns Filesystem is EXT2 - this is probably something for Windows Server 2008
ls (fd0) returns failure reading sector 0x2 - This should be OMV.
I'm having trouble setting up OMV on an HPE ProLiant ML110 G7 Server.
I have been struggling to get this set up. I installed from a USB thumb drive to a second thumb drive plugged into the motherboard.
I removed all the hard drives and the optical drive during installation.
The installation said it was successful.
After installation is said to restart and I was hit with a Grub error.
Attempting Boot From USB DriveKey (C:)
Error: attempt to read or write outside of disk ‘hd0’ .
Entering rescue mode …
Is this an issue related to installing USB to USB?
I tried read some thread on this issue but didn't understand how they resolved the issue.
Ah!! that's a HP, hence the error attempt to read outside 'hd0' the system is attempting to boot from the Raid controller, so this will depend on a number of things;Can the Raid option be turned off i.e. to AHCI
Can the system be set to boot from USB, whilst it must be able to otherwise the install USB would not work
If the Raid option can be turned off/disabled does the controller support single drives -> on some HP's and Dell's the only way to do this is to set each drive as Raid 0....not ideal and therefore would require a separate Sata controller.
That makes sense. The guy I got it off of ran OMV on it from a USB drive so I know it is possible.
He doesn't have internet right now so he can probably help me in a few days.
I remember he said that he didn't use the internal RAID card.
I will try the HP community forum.
Yes, I installed from one USB drive to another USB drive plugged into an internal USB port.
I suspect that it is VERY easy to implement. But I also suspect that if you need to ask you shouldn't do it.
Note that if you have N drives, in a JBOD arrangement, you have N times higher risk of loosing ALL data in case of a random drive failure. So you then REALLY need to have good and recent backups.
I thought that was the case with RAID 0, not JBOD. Can I not make a storage pool without stripping?
I don't care if I lose some media. Everything important will be backed up to cloud and an external.
"if you need to ask you shouldn't do it" is a pretty crap attitude. By that logic I shouldn't bother with OMV at all.
I just installed the most recent version on OMV onto my server after performing a hascheck and after rebooting I see the this error. Any ideas?
Attempting Boot From USB DriveKey (C:)
Error: attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0' .

I'm thinking about JBOD, is this simple to implement?
It would be much easier to manage a single volume.
SnapRAID looks suitable.
There are several threads here regarding this topic. To use the forum search is always a good choice See here: Simplifying The OMV Configuration Backup and Restore Process
Thanks, the trouble of the search is knowing which terms to use.
If you really need to backup the OS drive every day you are doing something seriously wrong and your thoughts about using flash memory for the OS can be scrapped. Then you need a SSD.
On the root filesystem I ONLY have apps and configuration. No, or at least very, very little, data that change often, This means that I only need to backup the root filesystem when I'm doing major upgrades that perhaps also involves configuration changes. Perhaps once a month or half year? Then it is easy to shut down, remove the USB drive and clone it. That is exactly what I do, but with SD cards.
I have a current cloned copy of all cards, ready to plug in, as well as images of all the cards on my laptop, for making more clones. (And backups of the laptop on a NAS.)
The data drive may need much more frequent backups. Even daily or more frequent.
This would be a back-up in the event that the OS storage device fails. It doesn't need to be anything fancy but I would like it to be automated so that I can easily recovery from a hardware failure. I don't have experience working with any type of RAID. I know if a hardware control dies, recovery of the array can be problematic. I assumed that if my thumb drive failed it could also be difficult to recover without a recent back-up.
That sounds good. I have two SanDisk Ultra Fit 32GB drives. I recently discovered the internal USB port so I can plug the thumb drive in and plug in the SD card to make a backup of the thumb drive I think?
What is the best way to backup the OS drive?
Can I automate it to make a back-up once a day?
