No boot drives!

Recommended Posts

I have followed the instructions to the letter, VId/Pid, S/N, MAC etc and then burned the downloaded and customised image to the usb drive using rufus.  The problem is the pc just comes up with a "no boot devices found".  I have used the same usb drive in the same pc and it boots to ubuntu when I burn an ubuntu image on it,so I do not believe it is the usb drive.  I did this to find the mac address.


Serial port in activated etc.


I am trying to setup Xpenology on an old Tranquil SQA5H (originally used for Windows Home Server 1.0).  It is a 5 drive bay NAS chassis.  It used to run DSM 4.x a few years ago without any issues (using the same usb drive for booting).


Any help much appreciated.

You may have to manually tell the BIOS to treat your USB stick as an USB-HDD.

That happened to me on one mainboard where I was testing XPE-compatibility (DFI LanParty P45-T3RSB).
