I tried two methods I’ve learned from the forum to install the volumio on the SSD (Samsung 970 Pro, NVME) in my x86 NUK. Below is the link that showed steps I followed, but got no luck.
I followed every single steps above with a volumio bootup USB drive and another USB drive (FAT32) with the volumio image. After the zip file was unzipped (I believed it’s been unzipped on the Samsung SSD), then I “umount” the USB drive and powered it up, the system brought me to the “shell>” mode. I tried several times still failed.
I read from the same thread that some users got their systems up running from a Windows 10 environment. I followed to install a Windows 10 on the Samsung SSD (FAT32, NVME), then booted up the system with a volumio-ready USB drive, from the user interface, there’s a build-in function that allow user to install volumio directly to the HDD, which is the Samsung SSD. However, I encountered the similar problem, that the system should have been installed, but the volumio still couldn’t be booted up without the USB.
Specs for my x86 NUK are listed below:
Intel NUC i5 10xxx
Samsung 970 PRO SSD
Crucial 8GB X 2
Could you please help to show me what the problem is? Compatibility issues or hardware issues? Any comment / help is greatly appreciated!!
Before I powered up the NUK again, I checked all USBs had been unmounted, then I press the button to turn on the NUK, the scripts ran along and finally it brought to me a command line mode with “Shell >”, stuff like that, and then I got stuck there, so no chance for a gui or so for me to access the NUK from a web browser… that’s for Trail (A).
Thanks Andrew, with your inputs I can explain more in details where I got stuck, hopefully someone had similar experience can show me the way!!
The Samsung I had was a “nvme”, I am not sure what it is, you can google it, but that nvme version SSD didn’t work, then from somewhere I heard that there’s another version called “ngff”, then I ordered one and got the volumio installed.
