    Hi,

     

    Using GUI-terminal, please copy/paste the output of 

    sudo fdisk -l

    so I can take a look at your current disk layout.

     

    1) Are you installing dualboot or standalone?

    2) What kind of USB installer are you using? (brand, size)

    3) Please copy/paste the exact cmd-line install cmd you're using, as well as the precise output (at least the last 100 lines or so if it is long).

    I am trying to do a standalone install, because this motherboard does not have UEFI firmware. My USB drive is: PATRIOT, size: 8 GB

    I tried both 

    • sudo chromeos-install --dst /dev/sda
    • sudo chromeos-install --skip_src_removable --dst /dev/sda

    Both had the same output....

  • Forrest Smith

    ok, can you run 

    sudo python /opt/neverware/auto_install.py

     

    Let it run all the way until the computer shuts itself down OR if the cmd prompt comes back to you . If the prompt returns, copy/paste the output.  If it shuts down entirely, try booting to it again, and try using the one-time-boot menu to boot to it to by selecting the HDD manually.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    Ok, I will try to do that, thank you for your help so far...

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    Ok, so I did sudo python /opt/neverware/auto_install.py, this is the output:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/opt/neverware/auto_install.py", line 278, in <module>

        install(dest, args.dualboot)
      File "/opt/neverware/auto_install.py", line 198, in install
        run_chromeos_install(dest, is_efi, dualboot)
      File "/opt/neverware/auto_install.py", line 124, in run_chromeos_install
        output = run_cmd(cmd)
      File "/opt/neverware/auto_install.py", line 65, in run_cmd
        output = subprocess.check_output(cmd, stderr=subprocess.STDOUT)

        raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd, output=output)
    subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['/usr/sbin/chromeos-install', '--dst', '/dev/sda', '--yes', '--skip_dst_removable']' returned non-zero exit status 1
  • Rostislav Medvěd

    I also tried booting from the HDD, but it went to PXE rom again.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    OK, I have an idea, I am going to clone the USB drive and recize /dev/sda16 to fit the drive. I will report the result.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    I am giving up.....Clonezilla did clone the USB to the HDD, but the system did not boot from the HDD again. It just went to the PXE rom.

  • Forrest Smith

    If you want to continue - 

     

    Next run:

    /usr/sbin/chromeos-install --dst /dev/sda --yes --skip_dst_removable

    Which is what already failed before, but running it by itself will give us a clearer error code to work off of

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    Ok, I am going to send You the output of that in a moment.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

  • Forrest Smith

    Hi,

     

    I'm not certain, but the fact that "/dev/loopback1" comes up when it is writing to /dev/sda16 (the primary stateful partition for the internal hdd) suggests that maybe you're already booting off of the internal HDD. To check this, you can just run "mount" and paste the output here.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    I do not think, that the system is booting from the HDD already, because there is still "Install CloudReady" option available. And when I remove the USB drive, the system does not boot, but anyway here is the output of the mount command:

  • Forrest Smith

    You're definitely right - good to confirm anyway.

    Can you do this:

     

    1) mkdir /tmp/mountpt

    2) sudo mount /dev/sda16 /tmp/mountpt

     

    I just want to see if there's an error mounting it - if it works without issue then that doesn't mean much.

     

    If there's an error, post it here. If not - We should wipe your internal drive really carefully and try again from scratch

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    Here it is:

    localhost / # mkdir /tmp/mountpt
    localhost / # mount /dev/sda16 /tmp/mountpt
    mount: /dev/sda16: more filesystems detected. This should not happen,
           use -t <type> to explicitly specify the filesystem type or
           use wipefs(8) to clean up the device.
  • Forrest Smith

    Hi,

     

    I think there must be some sort of corruption or error in /dev/sda16 which needs to be taken out before you can successfully install.

    I'd recommend a full-zeroes wipe of /dev/sda and then a reinstall. Do the wipe this way:

    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=16M
    sudo parted /dev/sda
    (parted) mklabel gpt
    (parted) quit


    Note that the "(parted)" is not something you need to type yourself - just a prompt once you launch parted.

    Once you've run that (the "dd" step will take a 20 or 30 minutes I think) you should try the auto_install.py cmd again.

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    Thanks, after doing the full zero wipe, I think, that the installation was successfull now, because I can boot on other machines, but this one (the problematic original Intel D945GCLF) just says "No bootable media". I think, the problem is that this motherboard probably does not support booting from GPT, or just CloudReady bootloader. Maybe there is some way to install a different bootloader, or install CR to MBR partition table, or maybe just something bootable to than load the CR bootloader. I do not know for sure, these are just my ideas and thoughts.

  • Forrest Smith

    You could try using plop!

     

    https://www.plop.at/en/bootmanagers.html

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    I already tried that, but I do not know how to use it properly and how to point it to CloudReady boot partition. Can you please help me with pointing PLOP to CR boot partition?

  • Forrest Smith

    Hey - 

     

    I have little experience with plop, but would recommend you follow the links in the most recent comment of this thread. The user there had success creating an iso that auto-boots to USB, so you could probably just use the same tool but have plop point at the HDD

  • Rostislav Medvěd

    I am not able to do this by myself, I am a noob and I know it + I do not have any experience with PLOP. I am sorry to bother You. But I still think, that You are the best support, that I have ever had. Thanks for your help.

  • Forrest Smith

    I wish I could offer more precision on how to use plop - I think if you explore the plop website and look for help articles online you should be able to find the help you need.

     

    Otherwise, I hope you can find another option for that machines, and enjoy CloudReady on the others.
