  1. Hi everyone, I had purchased a dedicated server (R720 with 8 x 3.5") for Unraid and another server (R720 with 16 x 2.5") for ESXi. Since the new version of Unraid supports RAID through BTRFS, I'm thinking of adding an MD1220 to my 3.5" R720 and selling the 2.5" R720. I have an H200 that I'd like to use for it. Will all 24 drives of the MD1220 be passed through the H200, or will it be limited to 16 drives? Brandon
  2. Ultimately, I had a double failure screw me up. I believe the old flash drive was giving up. Even after completely rebuilding it, it would mount the boot folder sometimes, wouldn't others. Kinda weird. On top of that, the first time I used the unraid creator on the new flash drive, it didn't work right. So I thought I was fighting my server. Turns out both flash drives were screwed. lol The new flash drive is now working as expected and fortunately my Unraid 6 config transferred over to the new server perfectly fine. I'm now running a parity check. Brandon
  3. Tried another computer... neither flash drive would boot to those, either. Re-ran the Unraid creator and copied the config files over. Worked like a champ. 🤦‍♂️ Thanks for the help, everyone! Sorry for wasting your time. Haha! Brandon
  4. Great question... I'll dig out a spare PC from the closet and give it a shot just to confirm. Brandon
  5. Correct. None of those off resolutions. I did search and read before posting. Brandon
  6. Yes, I read through both of those before posting this. I did not find anything pertaining to my specific errors. I am trying to rename the EFI folder to see if that will let UEFI boot work correctly. Brandon
  7. Hi everyone, I am not quite sure what else to do here. I have a new to me R720 that I'm trying to move my old ESXi based Unraid to this one on bare metal. I cannot get unraid to boot, though. I have tried both my old install (with a pro license) and a new USB stick that was setup using the unraid tool. Neither one will boot. I have also tried both UEFI and BIOS. I can add the UEFI boot by navigating to it, but then it won't allocate memory when it tries to boot. If I try in standard BIOS boot mode, it just says "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again..." Plenty of people are using this server for unraid. What could I possibly have setup wrong? I am using the USB on the back for now, but the internal USB results in the same errors. Any help MUCH appreciated!!! Brandon
  8. I see what you're saying. So strange. I'll dig in further. It doesn't make sense to me why it wouldn't mount now but has perfectly fine in the past. I think I'll try booting to bare metal and see what happens. Brandon
  9. I gave that a shot and have attached the results. I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking for. Brandon
  10. Hi everyone, I moved and started to setup my server at my new house, but cannot get Unraid to start. It will boot fine, but it pulls a DHCP address (despite having the IP set in the config file) and doesn't start the web service. I actually don't think it's reading any of the config files, but I'm not 100% sure. Where can I start troubleshooting? This machine has been running Unraid a long, long time and I'm moving to new hardware, but I don't want to lose any data and need to figure out why it's not fully loading. Technically, this is running on ESXi with Plop, but I don't think that matters for this specific issue. Thanks, Brandon
  11. True, true. No short cuts. Unless I just give up on keeping some of this data. Brandon
  12. Actually, I just remembered, I'm not putting it on ESXi next time... I bought a second server for it. Doh! I'd still hate to need a screenshot of the drive assignments and have no way of getting one. Brandon
  13. Ha! Need to update that sig. It was Plop. But my new server is on 7.0. Just installed it yesterday. Since I was on 6, it should find the correct drives and put them in the correct order, right? As opposed to having to take a shot of the disk assignments and making sure they're exactly the same before starting the array? Brandon
  14. Thanks, Doron. This is actually version 6. Or it's supposed to be. I went back and checked my build thread and it looks like I originally used plop, so I'm going to double check and make sure that's still in place as it is supposed to be. Or maybe now that I'm on 6, it is not needed? Need to double check. The sad thing is that I'm getting all of this running only to prep it to move to another, new home server (PowerEdge R720). Go figure. lol
