  • Installing VortexBox 2.5 on an NUC

    A lot of NUCs use NVMe drives. At the moment no VortexBox image will run on those. Is anybody trying to install on a box that uses NVMe?

    I was just about to, most parts just arrived, not quite a NUC - https://www.asrock.com/nettop/Intel/...0310%20Series/
    allows you to choose CPU and standard Intel heatsink/fan fits. Uses NVME M2 drive but also has provision for two sata 2 1/2" 9mm drives.

    My strategy (until I read this) was to attempt to build from the VortexBox 2.5 USB image. If that didn't work I was going to install to an SSD then use CloneZilla to clone to the NVME drive. If that didn't work I was going to clone from the test VB that I ran up to Fedora 27 a while ago.

    I will use an 8TB Seagate Expansion USB3 drive for storage (still waiting for delivery) but can try it out using a 1TB USB3.

      After nuking my old box (don’t ask) it took me a day of hacking around and tinkering with things I didn’t really know about to get VB2.5 running on a newly acquired NUC8I7BEH3 with a Samsung 970 EVO 500 GB running the OS and two 8TB HDD for the storage directory...

        What commands did you use to create your volume group for those 2x8Tb drives?

          I followed these guides:

          https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...sd-data-on-hdd
          https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...ive-to-storage

          Seem to remember that part being fairly straightforwards - at least in comparison to putting the image on the NUC's NVMe drive.
