XPEnoboot Install - Blank Screen

Recommended Posts

When it shows you the booting kernel screen, did you have a blinking cursor or anything else ?

 

Did you check if synology assistant detect your system ?

The cursor is blinking (and the screen flips from black to green) but nothing is found in Synology assistant.

 

I ran debug as well and it stops at:

[     5.354485] system 00:06: [mem 0xfed12010-0xfed1201f] has been reserved

The debug process seems to sop at that point.

Did yours boot to the DiskStation login prompt (it went past booting to kernel)?

 

Thanks.

Just an edit on my debug run.

 

The code runs with a black screen. Then it flips to green and stops at the following (adding a few more lines with the first being ".. could not be reserved")

[     5.348859] system 00:06: [mem 0xfed1c000-0xfed3ffff] could not be reserved
[     5.349002] system 00:06: [mem 0xfed45000-0xfed8bfff] has been reserved
[     5.349304] system 00:06: [mem 0xff000000-0xffffffff] has been reserved
[     5.349527] system 00:06: [mem 0xfee00000-0xfeefffff] has been reserved
[     5.349741] system 00:06: [mem 0xfed12000-0xfed1200f] has been reserved
[     5.354485] system 00:06: [mem 0xfed12010-0xfed1201f] has been reserved

I just disabled a bunch of stuff in BIOS so now with Debug I get to the below before stopping:

 

.........pci ........ can't assign to (size 0x20)

.........pci ........ trying firmware assignment [io 0x0020-0x003f]

 

So something is causing it to stop but I'm not sure what yet.

Thanks.

 

After I aplied the NoModeEmu - Yes. It gets to the login prompt without any problem.

Before the NoModeEMu it hanged at loading /zImage ...

I should add that this is on a zotac board. Haven't tested the Gigabyte one but I can do that rather Quickly.

Just did some additional test on my asus a8n-e with these graphic cards : Quadro FX, 8600GT, 9800GT, HD5450.

All cards boot ok up to the login prompt without doing anything.

 

I don't think it's something about the graphic cards but maybe it's related to gigabytes mainboard.

Hey,

 

I got an A8n-Sli Deluxe and nanoboot was working perfectly, but no way to boot with XPEenoboot.

I tried the "nomodset" parameter with just a few more lines at boot and a green screen.

 

I removed my brand new *crappy* MSI nvidia GEFORCE GT610 and tried with my old Nvidia 8800 GTS.

XPEnoboot is now working flawlessly. Migration 5.0 to 5.2 in progress :grin:

 

cheers

This issue is fixed in the dev version and the next release will included it.

The nvidia framebuffer is causing this black/blank/hang screen.
