General Support / Re: Install Issue (NVME SSD) **SOLVED**
« Last post by PackRat on Today at 01:31:05 PM »
Weren't you and jedi having some issues installing to NVME SSD drives a while back? Kind of touchy aren't they.

I've read some other posts about installation issues with them; not a distro specific issue.

General Support / Install Issue (NVME SSD) **SOLVED**
« Last post by lwfitz on Today at 06:10:30 AM »
Edit:
I'm not completely sure why the install worked this time but it did...... Anyway, Im back up and running.


It's been one hell of a year but regardless of my lack of posting I really am still around. Thanks to everyone who for their great info!

I recently built a new machine and am having one hell of a time getting installed on it.  Everything runs fine but no matter what I do the installer crashes.

New config:
Board: ASUS Prime H370M-Plus
CPU: i3-8350K
RAM: 32GB DDR4 (2400Mhz)
Storage: 250GB  XPG Gammix S10 NVME M.2 SSD / 4TB Storage Drive
Graphics: nVidia GTX 660 (getting replaced with a GTX 1070 when it arrives)
Power: 500 Watt Corsair

I've tried downloading multiple times and created my install usb using DD, Rufus (winblows) and Mac disc utility.
The usb boots up with no issues, recognizes the drive and starts to install but then once the files start copying it crashes.
I have used the usb to install to other drives and used the same usb to  run a net install of Debian testing (then upgraded to SID) on the drive I wanted with no issues at all (both MBR and EFI).
When I tried to check the install log for errors the log doesn't seem to actually exist.

My belief is that it has to do with the NVME drive ad it installs fine to a standard drive (both mechanical and ssd).

Any idea's?

Could have sworn I posted this one...



The previous 'uptime' was 89 days.  This was our first real winter storm this year.  (Nov 4)
And with literally like minutes to spare, power came back on.  Still going strong, though long, long, long, overdue for an upgrade to the kernel.  I have been so uncomputered this year.   ???

VSIDO Discussions / Re: Testdisk Photorec and recovering deleted files

Huh, I feel your pain.

I went through a very similar situation a couple of times in the past. But i didn't noticed a mass of files being deleted too soon (both times, silly me...) I managed to recover gazillions of files but just numbered randomly(?) It was a real pita going through them one by one trying to figure out what's what, remaming and relocating them where they belonged. Of course I never finished it and lost so many things.  Backups are great. We need backups and sync, but beware of of backup and syncing tools. One mistake and they can hurt badly. They're true cousins of rm -rf.
