CLOSED: Amahi 11 ISO image not bootable

Postby phaedrus351 » Fri Nov 15, 2019 4:23 pm

The hash is right, but the image doesn't seem to contain a partition table and is not bootable. Did a couple different downloads. Anybody else with this issue?

Never had an issue.

However I think you’ll find the Minimal Install CD works better.

Recommend you give it a try.

Wilco, thanks. Found the "express install" version of F27, presumably a bootable ISO. Didn't have an issue with an older version, ISO was partitioned correctly and bootable when installed on a USB drive. Hopefully this'll be more representative of the "Easiest Way to Set Up a NAS." Much more fooling around with simple stuff makes it harder than doing Freenas or Ubuntu.

The Express CD for Amahi 11 does not work as well as the Minimal Install CD.

Recommend you try the later.

If you're talking about the "minimal install" that occurs after the CD boots, the CD doesn't boot to get that far. I'll get home and try the express boot ISO to see if it's partitioned correctly in a bit. The one that links from "Getting Started" (either torrent or download, if those are different repositories) does not.

The "Express Install" is the "Minimal Install", same ISO.

Not the same.

You can find Minimal Install CD here.
