Re: Kernel GPT Support

Hello Tuxedo! Thanks for the help so far. After some more testing i've got some Updates for you: ⋅ I've deleted all partitions and partition tables from the HDD, to start from a fresh environment. Than i added only a MBR partitiontable with just one 2GB partition and formated it with ext3....

Re: Kernel GPT Support

The Plug is booting from the internal flash as normal and it mounts the external 4TB just fine. ( Works as designed ;) ). But i wanted the Plug to boot from the external 4TB Disk. I've copied all the necessary files to the HDD, just the same way i've build up my Bootable-USB-Stick (which works just ...

Re: Kernel GPT Support

OK. It works well. The Plug just mounted a 4TB HDD to disk1part1 :ugeek: Now i'm trying to boot from that, but it won't work. I copied over all files from my USB-Boot-Stick (the Stick works well). But the Plug won't boot from the Disk. Neither on a cold reboot nor from a warm reboot. What can i do t...

Re: power up boot vs reboot

I visited a friend of mine yesterday (greatings to desaad ;) ) and we build an external boot-device for his plug. But instead of an USB-Stick we used an external 2.5" USB-HDD. And it worked well. The Plug is booting from the external drive every time. Never the less if it's a cold or warm reset...

Re: Kernel GPT Support

OK. I figured it out myself. Thanks for the help :!: For others as Info: I googled for that and found, that the Kernel has to be compiled with the Option "CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION" as to be switched on for GPT support. So i logged on to the plug via ssh and did an: less /proc/config.gz | grep ...

Re: What file system to use on an external drive?

if you're planing to use this external drive only on the Plug or other Linux Machine
ext3 (or ext4) Filesystem is the best choice.
If you use ext4 you should read this: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=2254

Now i read, that the Kernel has to use the GPT option to recognize Partitions over 2TB right? So does the Plug has this Option, or do i have to recompile the plugs Kernel to...
