Corrupted flash drive (SOLVED)

Hi,

I’ve run into a problem where the flash drive of the unraid is messed up.

When booting I get the error “failed to load com32 file menu.c32.

I can still read the flash drive in an ordinary pc.

 

Reason why it’s messed up.

I was removing a boot argument in the syslinux.cfg file ( on a running system)

 

Unbraid 6.7.2

Asus m4a89gtd-pro USB3

And fx 8350

Kind regards

Boysim

Do you mean you removed the USB drive to do this?  You should never remove the USB stick from the server while it is running.  It is normally perfectly OK to make such a change on a running Unraid system as long as you do it directly on the server or over the network.

Did it over the network. Like you said I thought it wouldn’t harm the system. I also did execute the make bootable file

Not sure why you ended up with corruption then.   You did not need to run make bootable file when making such a change and not sure if that could have contributed to the corruption!

any pointer to how to fix this?

 

Put the USB stick into a PC/Mac and back it up.   You can then rewrite the USB stick with whatever release you want and then copy the config folder from the backup you have just made overwriting the one on the USB stick to restore your key and configuration information.   With any luck the USB stick will now boot Unraid OK.
