YunoHost version: 11.0.9
I have access to my server : Through SSH | direct access via keyboard / screen
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no
Trying to install with the simple graphical installer, and a USB flashed with the 64 bit installer. No extra or weird steps taken. Following the installer has not yet yielded a bootable system for me, after several attempts with different USB drives and various levels of drive formatting. This included installing Debian 12, which worked perfectly fine after the first install. I will describe the last few attempts to install Yunohost here.
- Use GParted Live on a USB to completely remove all partitions on the only drive present on the Beelink pc
- Flash Yunohost onto a USB and boot into it in UEFI mode (the only option present in my BIOS)
- Follow all graphical steps up until the Disk Partitioning step
- Get a message stating
This machine’s firmware has started the installer in UEFI mode but it looks like there may be existing operation systems already installed using “BIOS compatibility mode”. If you continue to install Debian in UEFI mode, it might be difficult to reboot the machine into any BIOS-mode operating systems later.
If you wish to install in UEFI mode and don’t care about keeping the ability to boot one of the existing systems, you have the option to force that here. If you wish to keep the option to boot an existing operating system, you should choose NOT to force UEFI installation here.
Force UEFI Installation?
Yes, because I don’t care about keeping any previously installed system bootable (do note that there is no prior system installed, the drive has been wiped)
Guided - use entire disk
- Select my disk
/dev/nvme0m1(the only other option is the installer USB)
- It complains that “No EFI partition was found.” and asks if I’d like to go back to the previous step. Selecting
Yesboots me back to the same prompt forever, so I select
Noso it continues the installation
- The “Install the base system” and “Select and install software” steps start progressing for a while, seemingly installing packages
- The next step varies between my first and second attempts to install:
- My first attempt resulted in a failure message for grub: “Executing
grub-install /dev/nvme0n1failed. This is a fatal error." The OS is not bootable
- I redid all the above steps with no change, and the second attempt had the installer seem to finish, or at least exit after installing grub, but the drive is still not bootable; no sign of grub as a boot option for my system
- After 2., I can see using a live Ubuntu USB that the nvme0n1 seems to have all the partitions needed to boot, including an ext4
bootpartition and a extended partition that includes a logical swap and ext4 data partition. However, there is still no option to boot into this OS from the bios, it just drops into the UEFI interactive shell when I turn the pc on with no USBs attached, and there are no entries in the boot menu.
Can anyone instruct me on what else I should try here?
