Problem with switching OS on MD
« on: February 18, 2017, 12:38:42 am »
I have 1 MD using with an internal HDD and Windows 10 on it,so far it was never a problem to switch between the MD or Windows 10. The MD is configurated to boot over Network and when its up and running,you hit the Start as OS on Harddrive Button in Orbiter Power Section and the MD restarts but the PXE Bootfile it gets from the Core then lets it jump over Network Boot and boots up from Harddrive the Windows 10. If u want to switch back u hit the Boot as MD Button in an Orbiter.Then restart your Windows and the MD comes back again cause now the PXE Bootfile let it boot over Network again. But here is the problem the MD stays in 1 Mode until u switch and in some of the last updates i cant tell which one exact im sry the Boot up as MD Button is not shown anymore in all Orbiters at my setup 14.04 latest updates.
Can someone help,would be nice to have my MD boot up again,it is the 1 im using most in my living room and now its stuck in Windows10 mode.

Thanks Howie

Change the relevant file manually. This is how a good file looks:

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_112602:/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg# cat 01-6c-62-6d-e6-15-1d
KERNEL 298/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=298/initrd.img ramdisk=10240 rw root=/dev/nfs boot=nfs nfsroot=,intr,nolock,udp,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,retrans=10,timeo=50 

Of course, replace the mac address in the filename with the mac address of your MD, and the 298 with a ID of your MD.

Oh, and please open an issue in about this.
