Hi, I’ve been really impressed with my demo of Roon and decided to buy a NUC with a view to purchasing a lifetime once my demo runs out. However, I can’t seem to get it to install and wonder if anyone has any ideas…
WD Green M.2 120GB SSD
8GB Corsait ValueSelect DDR4@2133MHz
I’ve updated the Bios to 0066 and I’ve used Etcher to create an image of ‘roonbox-linuxx64-nuc3-usb-factoryreset.img.gz’ in it’s compressed form.
I get the options up for Fresh install, which disk and the confirm… then it starts to install with ‘Preparing Disk’ which always finishes, then I get Installing RoonOS’ up and a flashing cursor which after a while just stops flashing or disappears and that’s it… I’ve left it for up to half an hour and it never gets past this. It sounds like this could take a few minutes and it looks like mine is crashing for some reason.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
Thanks… I’m new round here, but I’d tried to find something related but failed.
I’ve tried two usb drives, but ordered a new one just in case its that. Properly wiped the m.2 and tried it in my main PC, moved the RAM to the other slot. Really at a loss and annoyingly £400+ in…
Thank you for your reply. I always seem to be the edge case
I’ve just rolled the Bios back to 0064 and it’s doing the same thing. All I see is
I just left it running for 15 mins (how long should it take?) then I pulled the USB and nothing changed. Single tapping the power button does nothing and only holding it down to force a shutdown works.
It’s just past midnight now so that’s it for today, but any help will be followed up in the morning, thanks.
yes, the only drive on the list (because it’s the only drive) is the m.2 WD 120GB SSD
I just captured video of the first message it shows which is up very briefly, which consists of a copyright message, Initialising… and the two lines of ‘Waiting for USB subsystem to initialise…’ Then I get the three install questions.
I might install an OS on it and see if it behaves.
