Installing unraid on Hetzner Server

Hello

 

Can anyone link or guide me though how to make a usbdrive for my newly rented Hetzner server.

 

Im used to unraid on my local server. But now i wanna move it all to my new server.

 

I have unziped all the files i downloaded from unraid.net. made a iso file which i have got hetzner to mount.

 

But now in my kvm-consol i cant boot the server anymore because the usbdrive i believe is not bootable yet.

I dont know what to do now, and hetzner cant help me anymore.

 

 

Sincerly

Can't you create the USB drive locally, test it locally, and then send it off to be plugged into the server?

Hello i did create the usbdrive locally but i cant make it bootable from here. i then put it in google drive so the staff at hetzner could grap it. But he has burn it to a usb i think and now its not bootable.

I was thinking of you posting the physical USB in a 'ready-to-go' state.

 

From what you have said has happened so far it sounds as if at the Hetzner end the make_bootable.bat file needs to be run to make the USB drive bootable?

Yes i thought they could that that but after i send it and contacted them because now nothing was working. They told me they could not make it bootable. somehow i need to do that by myself.

 

I have installed a version of unbuntu now and i can see the usbdrive. But it is not showing up as a usbdrive on the desktop. It looks more like a cdrom or something. So now im really confused.

When i try to run the command "sudo bash" and copy the file from where i unzipped it to the terminal. it is now saying "FAIL There appears to be no drive present with the label UNRAID, aborting"

 

It was not called UNRAID from the beginning. I have changed the display name but it is still not working.

Im thinking of have i done it all wrong. Should i have asked the guy from Hetzner to just make a 16 GB usb drive.

 

If that is possible i could install the unraid software to the usbdrive by myself and make it bootable.

Perhaps it's a language barrier issue, but you will have to have a physical USB drive with a valid unique GUID to license unraid. That sentence makes me think your host is setting up a virtual drive for you to use, which will not work.
