I am starting to get a little frustrated…
After having experimented with RockStor on a buggy Gigabyte board, I was looking forward to install it on My ASUS M3A78-CM which has proven a rock solid board with my previous (Windows) installs.
But RockStor refuses to install on it. I get through the whole install process onto the point where RockStor install says “Installing bootloader”, after a couple minutes this fails with a message about an unknown error has occured. Why on earth would this fail? The installer has spent the last 10 minutes copying files to the drive, with no complaints, and then fails at the very last step. Annoying.
On the Gigabyte, which is basically the same hardware/chipset the install worked every time.
What could be wrong? I have tried every single BIOS setting there is, and the BIOS is the latest one available for the board.
BTW, Freenas install went smooth without problems on the same board, so the board works OK. But I would rather use RockStor (because of its greater felxibility about adding / removing disks). But it seems that is out of the question.
