XPEnoboot 'Boot Error'

Recommended Posts

I am on bare metal using the following hardware

  • Motherboard: Intel DG35EC
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7200
    RAM: 4 GB DDR2
    HDD: Maxtor 6V160E0 (160GB), SeaGate ST32000542AS (2TB)
    Chipset Info: 82G35 Graphics and Memory Controller, 82801HB I/O Controller Hub (ICH8), 82566DC Gigabit Ethernet Controller

 

I am currently using Nanoboot 5.0.4.1 with DSM 4528.

Everything works OK.

 

I have tried to use Xpenoboot 5.2 5565.1 (& also previous versions of Xpenoboot) but each time I try to boot all I get is 'Boot Error' on screen.

 

Doesn't even get as far as loading the boot options.

I have verified the USB boot stick works on other hardware, so I can only presume this is some kind of driver/hardware issue.

I have systematically gone through onboard devices on motherboard disabling one at a time and rebooting.

But nothing I try will get this to boot.

 

Has anyone any advice to offer? Obviously this issue is preventing me from updating any further.

I don't want to get stuck using only Nanoboot on DSM 4528

I had the same problem going from Nanoboot to XPEnoboot on one of my motherboards. I think it was an Intel DQ35JOE. I got it working by going into the BIOS, Boot, USB Mass Storage Emulation Type and changed the setting from "Auto" to "All Fixed Disc"

htpcdude you're the man. :mrgreen:

 

Thanks for pointing that out, I don't think I would have ever thought of looking in there :oops:

Changed that setting and, hey presto XPEnoboot will boot.

 

Now happily running 5.2 5565 :grin::grin:

I will be looking to migrate my DS211 to XPEnology safe in the knowledge I can continue to update with XPEnoboot
