CLOSED: Fresh v11 Install. Stuck on Setup

Postby WiFiNetGuy » Thu Jun 13, 2019 6:49 am

I'm doing a fresh install on a Toshiba laptop with a 500GB HDD and 8GB of RAM.

I've burned the ISO to a DVD and installed from that. Everything went fine (although selecting Time Zone was an issue) and then it rebooted. Now it's stuck on "Amahi Server is being Setup" on a terminal screen. I left it for along time, about 2 hours, on the first attempt. Then I attempted to redo the installation, with the same result. The second time, I even left it overnight thinking it just needed a bunch more time. So on the third attempt, I used GParted and erased all partitions on the HDD and formatted it as NTFS. Then attempted the installation for a third time. Still stuck on the same screen.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Best to do minimal install CD.

DVD should only be used as a last resort.

Also, only a single wired network card is supported. If you have a wireless card installed, you will need to disable it in the BIOS.

See system requirements for details.

Ensure you follow the install instructions precisely for best results.

I'm sorry, I did the download of the .iso Express CD. I only used a DVD as the burn medium, out of habit.

Also, do you mean that I can't have my only network adapter as the wireless card? I thought I could only have one adapter, either wired or wireless.

I don't recommend the Express CD. Minimal CD works best.

No, it must be wired as stated in the system requirements.

You'll notice it says "One wired network interface. Wireless interfaces are not supported in the server itself. "

Sorry, but without a wired network interface, Amahi will not work for you.

BTW, a wireless server is not common and typically won't perform very well.
