Hi all. I have spent the last few hours trying to figure out why I can’t get my system to boot from a USB flash drive. I’m on a X8SIL-F with X3470 and 16GB of RAM. All’s compatible and I can get into the boot menu and it shows the right CPU and memory.
But, when I try to boot from a USB flash drive, nothing happens. I’ve tried FreeDOS bootable drive, as well as unRAID. After the initial AMI screen (POST 1 I think? “initializing…”, “USB, 2 keyboard” etc etc), the board beeps and then nothing on the screen.
I’m on BIOS v 1.0c. Created the drive using Etcher and FreeDOS 12 USB Full ISO, and unRAID using their own tool.
I’ve made sure that the flash drive is 1st in boot order, and retry boot is enabled. At this point, I’m pretty frustrated and completely lost.
Am I doing something stupid here? What can I do to troubleshoot? This is my first build based on NK1.0, and with this issue already, kind of starting to regret buying $400 worth of parts.
