Thread: Boot failure with ruggedized Innodisk USB Nano

  1. #1

    Default Boot failure with ruggedized Innodisk USB Nano

    Hello all!

    Usually I configure OPEN-E appliances to boot from internal USB keys (e.g. IBMs x3650 internal USB socket).
    But in the last years I had several problems with "normal" USB keys, which were failing after months of use.

    So I was looking for more stable USB keys.
    Now I am testing industrial grade USB keys from Innodisk (product name: "Industrial Nano USB" on

    But I cannot boot DSS V7 from these devices in any server I have tested. The boot process hangs on 39%
    with "Please enter root password or press Control-D to continue". I have tested it with V7 up11 and up12 on
    several IBM x-Series an my home PC, so totally different hardware. And I have three of these USB keys.

    Is there any hint, why these devices do not boot? I can provide OPEN-E support with one of my keys.

    Thanks for any help!

    What is the size of the Industrial Nano USB? If less then 2GB then test with the DSS V6. We really dont suggest using a USB for any OS, SSD's have a longer life then the USB.
    All the best,
