Hey folks, having another weird issue. Upgraded to rc5-r8618 and got through upgrading my parity drive (to a WD Green 3Tb drive). Got through rebuilding parity, then Unraid Main stopped working. Tried some of the solutions found in the forum but nothing worked. I couldn't find the power down button so I just switched it off (yes I know, I forgot about the powerdown command from telnet).
Now when I boot up, it goes through all the normal boot up stuff but then gets to a black screen with just a cursor blinking in the top left hand corner and doesn't do anything further. When this has happened in the past, a reboot would sort it out but it hasn't in this case.
I also copied all my old 4.7 files back onto the drive and just replaced the bzimage and bzroot files (as per the upgrade instructions) but still no luck on booting up. I will be trying to just restore to my old config (I haven't formatted the old parity drive as yet, wanted to get everything working 100% before I did so) in 4.7 to see if that will boot up.
My server config is as follows:
Mobo: SUPERMICRO MBD-X8SIL-F-O
CPU: Intel i3 540 Clarkdale (the i3 530 and i3 550 are fine too, choose based on price and availability)
RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333
PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W
Case: Antec 1200
Hot Swap Drive Bays: Norco SS-500 x 4
SATA Expansion Cards: Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8 8-Port SAS/SATA Add-on Card x 2
Drives: 10xWD Green 2Tb, 1xWD Black 2TB (old parity drive), 1xGreen 3Tb (new parity drive)
I am not sure where to find the syslog, happy to attach it but given that it's not booting would it be of any use?
If you need further info, let me know what and I'll get it right away.
Thanks in advance
