Same problem here with a nuc 7 i7 and bios 63 and image file. I also don’t know witch version, but dowloaded it from the site were teh installation notes are. If theres a solution can you let me know. I want to buy a license for life but need solution first.
best regards, jelmer
Same problem. NUC717BNH. Tried many, may time. BIOS 63, used instructions on the ROON ROCK page. I have formatted USB FAT, downloaded the image file from ROON ROCK multiple times/ In Win 10 I see the USB has two items - an apparently empty identity folder and a file 46.4 MB titled roon.tar.bz2. When I go to NUC, I hit F10 to make it boot from USB and get the now all too familiar “Failed to load ldlinux.c32”. I rebooted NUC and F2 into the BIOS to try to insure the NUC was booting from the USB drive. Rebooted NUC. Same error.
I know all are giving this their best effort to address, and I appreciate it. After buying a lifetime membership to ROON, buying the NUC7i7BNH (8GB RAM), 128 GB M.2 SSD, I am down about $1200 (with membership) and still can’t get the NUC to load from the USB Drive. I am stuck at step 5 at https://kb.roonlabs.com/ROCK_Install_Guide.
Any and all help appreciated. I have become a big ROON fan and was excited about having a NUC. The excitement is fading and frustration is setting in. Multiple USB drives. Multiple Flashes with Etcher. No luck.
I’ll add my voice to the chorus. Same situation as Arthur above, same NUC, same consistent error message. Looking forward to the solution.
No, I have not identified a solution, but in rereading through this thread it seems that v1.4 would install, and then auto-update to 1.5. Can someone confirm this is correct? If so, is there someplace where I can download v1.4?
This is not my first home-built rodeo. I have built ~8-10 systems, from home PCs to Windows Home Server (yes, I am old), to high-performance workstations (I am a scientist in a high tech area with ~ 20 workstations in my lab), plus having 6 dedicated virtual servers at work. My favorite is my uber-high end home system just recently built for my Vive VR system. It worked perfectly from Second 1 of Minute 1 of Day 1. The one thing I have zero experience in is Linux, as all my instruments run Windows (dang-it). So, while I am far from perfect (ask my wife) I have several, but not all of the fundamentals of PCs under reasonable control (but not an IT jock). Perhaps that is why I am a bit frustrated - it seems I should be able to make this work, but I seem to be missing something fundamental.
I love ROON. It wonderfully integrated my lossless music collections with my Tidal subscription. I love its integration with SONOS (I was an early adopter). What really sold me was ROON’s integration with my Audeze headphones. It led me to buy a Chord Mojo.
I am really looking forward to having my ROON ROCK NUC system running. Until then I feel like I am stuck in a Three Stooges movie (NUC-NUC-NUC). OK - sorry about the terrible pun
Thanks in advance.
I think the issue is being addressed as @eric noted and some time to get things tested and updated to the download site is and will be detailed as and when its done.
My thanks to you and your team. Many of us are looking forward to the fix.
I too am having the same issue. I have downloaded the file multiple times, I have tried flashing from 2 different computers, 2 different flash drives, flashing zipped and unzipped.
The image file is roonbox-linuxx64-nuc3-usb-factoryreset-100000158 and downloaded from http://download.roonlabs.com/builds/roonbox-linuxx64-nuc3-usb-factoryreset.img.gz
The NUC7i7BNH is updated with bios 0063 set on legacy. The thumb drive once flashed shows roon.tar.bz2 file and a folder named “identity”. The folder is empty. The error message is “Failed to load ldlinux.c32”.
Please help! Thank you.
Sorry for the trouble here, guys. We should have a fix for this soon.
All – The fix mentioned in Mike’s previous is now available. Please re-download the ROCK image and verifying what the experience is like during the install process.
I tried the new version and it went very well.
My Roon Rock is running.
Thanks for your support.
Thank you! Worked perfectly - up and running on a Zotac mini pc! I had all the same issues with the previous download earlier today.
Yay. Mine has also worked. Busy upgrading now and importing music…
Thank you for the fix I was able to install the NUC.
Worked perfectly here too. Thanks!
Now is working well, many thanks to all Roon staff @mike @eric and @support team
I was able to install on a NUC7i7DNH Dawson Canyon and it works great.
Thanks for all of the work on this.
Thank you for the update. The Roon Core now installs easily.
