I think i messed up my NAS build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I dont know if this is in the right place, if its not im sorry.

so after setting up everything, I was ready to install FreeNAS on to my 40gb IDE hard drive from CD. Everything ram smoothly until the installation. it started installing and then the screen went black, no notifications, no progress, no nothing. I waited 5 minutes and then shut it off through the power switch (since that the only way i have to do so). So i tried again and it couldnt install. Tried with a usb...not happening. bootable usb to usb... nope.

I kept getting some error about not able to install or something, then after a while it failed to even recognize other drives on the system (when i booted from usb). So then i went and tried to install ubuntu through a cd, but the cd drive and the hdd (both IDE) were not recognized and i got that "disk boot failure, please insert boot disk" or something like that

I tried resetting cmos/bios, I went back and changed the boot drive to the cd drive, and still nothing (also the HDD settings are a Native IDE), I changed the power supply, removed the raid controller, and still nothing (i havent tried SATA since i dont have any spare). I think why it couldnt see the 2nd usb to install to is because it was formatted to FAT32, but thats just a noob guess. also i think i broke the onboard IDE controller

Does anyone have any ideas?

I also switched from FreeNAS to NAS 4 Free.

the hardware:

AMD Athlon II x3 450
Gigabyte GA 880GM-D2H
Kingston HyperX Blu 4gb (2x2gb) DDR3-1600
Scythe Big Shuriken 2
Vantec PCI to SATA2 6-ports w/RAID
OCZ ZS 650w PSU
Old Case from garage sale/ iCAN BM-655 (moded)
Silverstone SST-CFP52B Bay converter x2

What was the exact error message when installing because "disk boot failure, please insert boot disk" usually just means it cannot find a bootable os.

FAT32 filesystem is fine
I followed this guide on how to copy the NAS4Free img file directly to usb drive.

First thing, make sure the jupers are set to slave for the cd and master for the hard drive and make sure they are in the proper position on the cable if on the same. I cant remember which postion is which though. Then test your ram. Ram causes tons of problems. Just turn off quick boot in your bios and it will run itself through a quick memtest. You can also download some bootable tools with memtest software.
