Bios requirements for XPEnoboot?


Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there are specific settings needed in bios for XPEnoboot to load properly?


I've tried a couple of very different usb flash drives and have validated by md5 my img file. But each time I try to boot from the USB, I see the XPEnoboot logo and it seems to stop there. It never gets far enough to load the network, and I never see a login prompt. I've played with various PC Bios settings, but am wondering if there are specific bios features that are required to be enabled or disabled?


Is there a method of troubleshooting to find out where I'm stuck and how to fix it?

It was my Supermicro SAT-MV8 card.. apparently it doesn't like it. I've thrown a different SATA card in there and it boots fine now. Thanks for the help!


I have the same card. Apparently Xpenoboot broke support for some Marvell cards. It use to work with Nanoboot 5.1. So basically, I can't use those cards either until it's fixed with a future version of the bootloader
