Hi there!

 

At the instruction it's siad about USB device being as main container device for unRAID. Is there a possibility to install it on SSD/HDD for example?

 

Thank you!

Not at this time.  With unRaid and its extremely minimal writes to the flash drive, it will probably last longer than any hard drive you ever install.  My first unRaid flash is now 6 years old and still running, whereas none of the hard drives I've had installed in that server still are.

So you offer to use the flash drive as the only boot device all the time and this will be ok as it takes no so much write operations, correct?

But what about boot speed: SSD is much faster than a flash drive... ?

Yes

After the initial loading of 2 files from the flash drive, every thing runs directly from RAM.  Speed of the flash etc doesn't amount to more than around 1-2 seconds.

I'm sorry but when I'm trying to install unRAID via Unraid.USB.Creator.Win32-1.5b.exe utility I got the error:

Error: Couldn't open C:/Users/[My_Username]/AppData/Local/Temp/unraid.bootimg.gz

How to fix it please?

Did you rename your USB to UNRAID?

 

Also you simply unpack all of the files leaving the internal folder structure in tact and drop them on your USB stick and simply double click on the creator.exe file. It should walk you thru the process with a popup cmdline prompt.

Yup.

The problem was that Unraid.USB.Creator.Win32-1.5b.exe is unable to recognize my Cyrilic username in the path. 

I guess that should be fixed.
