Nanoboot on x86 machine

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to repurpose an old x86 PC to be my backup NAS with PATA drives. Unfortunately, Nanoboot does not see the PATA drives and the screen scrolls too fast for me to see what some of the log error messages in red are saying.

 

How do I debug this? So far, I'm having to hard power cycle the machine because I haven't been able to find the default password to log in to the nanoboot console and do a controlled shutdown :sad:

 

(I realize that the ultimate answer may be that the drivers are insufficient to use the machine but would like to try as a learning exercise before giving up)

 

Thanks
