  1. Hello: That did it. groucho@devuan:~$ sudo bash ./make_bootable_linux INFO: make_bootable_linux v1.3 INFO: The following device appears to be the unRAID USB Flash drive: /dev/sdf INFO: Temporarily mounting unRAID USB Flash drive to /tmp/UNRAID_TMP_MOUNT Permit UEFI boot mode [Y/N]: n INFO: unRAID USB Flash drive currently mounted to /tmp/UNRAID_TMP_MOUNT, copying temporary installer files to /tmp/UNRAID To continue you may need to enter your admin password INFO: Installing Syslinux bootloader on /dev/sdf1 INFO: Writing MBR on /dev/sdf 0+1 records in 0+1 records out 447 bytes copied, 0.00528995 s, 84.5 kB/s INFO: the Unraid OS USB Flash drive is now bootable and may be ejected. groucho@devuan:~$ Thank you very much. Best, JHM PS: Have a Happy Easter.
  2. Hello: > What about the USB creator tool? > My box runs Linux. I don't have Mac hardware. The XPSP3 installation I used as an alternative (to test what was happening) happened to be at hand. Is not mine. And Unraid runs on Linux. No idea what the problem is? Thanks in advance, JHM
  3. Hello: > Please advise. > I haven't had any feedback on how to solve this issue yet. Any idea as to what to do? Thanks in advance, JHM
  4. Ahh ... Forgotten tidbit. Thanks for the reminder. But running the script from the USB drive from an XPSP3 instalation while logged in as Administrator also gives me a similar error: Make Bootable v1.5 ERROR - script must be run as administrator. Right click and select 'Run as administrator' or execute from an elevated command prompt. Press any key to continue ... As expected, it goes the same way if I open a terminal and execute 'make_bootable'. Please advise. Thanks in advance, JHM
  5. No. I am running the script as root: [root@devuan UNRAID]# whoami root [root@devuan UNRAID]# ./make_bootable_linux -bash: ./make_bootable_linux: Permission denied [root@devuan UNRAID]# OK [root@devuan UNRAID]# cp make_bootable_linux /home/groucho [root@devuan UNRAID]# cd /home/groucho [root@devuan groucho]# ls --- snip --- make_bootable_linux --- snip --- [root@devuan groucho]# chmod u+x make_bootable_linux [root@devuan groucho]# groucho@devuan:~$ sudo ./make_bootable_linux INFO: make_bootable_linux v1.3 INFO: The following device appears to be the unRAID USB Flash drive: /dev/sdf Permit UEFI boot mode [Y/N]: n INFO: unRAID USB Flash drive currently mounted to /media/groucho/UNRAID, copying temporary installer files to /tmp/UNRAID umount: /media/groucho/UNRAID: target is busy. To continue you may need to enter your admin password sudo: /tmp/UNRAID/syslinux/make_bootable_linux.sh: command not found groucho@devuan:~$ Just in case, running it as root from the /home folder has the same result: [root@devuan groucho]# ./make_bootable_linux INFO: make_bootable_linux v1.3 INFO: The following device appears to be the unRAID USB Flash drive: /dev/sdf Permit UEFI boot mode [Y/N]: n INFO: unRAID USB Flash drive currently mounted to /media/groucho/UNRAID, copying temporary installer files to /tmp/UNRAID umount: /media/groucho/UNRAID: target is busy. To continue you may need to enter your admin password sudo: /tmp/UNRAID/syslinux/make_bootable_linux.sh: command not found [root@devuan groucho]# I fail to understand why root lacks permissions to run the script from the flash drive. Still, something seems to be amiss. Could be. In these days when you can run a full fledged distribution with persistence/portability from an SD card, the difference may not be immediately obvious or slip by, like with me. If I may suggest: Thanks in advance, JHM
  6. Ahh ... Had not seen that, must have missed it. Where is that? No matter. 16Gb USB2.0 Memory Stick - Label: UNRAID Still no cigar ...

  7. Hello: I downloaded the latest Unraid *.zip to test it on my box and see how it does. Unfortunately, after following the pertinent instructions, I have not been able to do so. The 2Gb SD card was formatted as FAT32 using `gparted` and a new UUID was written to it to make sure it had a unique one, just in case. [root@devuan UNRAID]# ./make_bootable_linux -bash: ./make_bootable_linux: Permission denied [root@devuan UNRAID]# To make sure it was not a Linux glitch, I tried to run `make_bootable.bat` as Administrator on a netbook running XPSP3. Same result: even though I am logged into XP as Administrator, the system tells me that I can only run the bat file as Administrator. I'd appreciate some insight into this problem as I am keen to try Unraid. Best, JHM
