[H2+] Unable to instal TrueNAS on NVMe

Post by Paier »

Hi!
I'm trying to build a little silent NAS 1x Lexar 256GB NVMe as the boot drive, and 2x Samsung 2TB SSD. I've first installed Windows 10 on the NVMe with no issues at all, just to play around a bit. I then tried to install TrueNAS Scale on it, but the NVMe (Lexar 256GB) was not shown on the list of the available drives for the installation... I've tried to play around in the BIOS a bit, changing the OS type from "Windows" to "Intel Linux" but that didn't help. With no option to install TrueNAS on the NVMe I installed it on one of the SSD, just to confirm that the NVMe is not seen at all by the OS since it wasn't even present in the list of disks available for the creation of the volumes. Other things I've tried with no results:
- reinstalling TrueNAS with a different USB key
- load up Windows again, delete the volume on the NVMe
- this

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks :)


PS: To my surprise, after reading numerous times that the Realtek NICs don't work out of the box on Linux, on TrueNAS Scale they work just fine.

Perhaps you need to disable secure boot?

Thank you for your reply, unfortunately secure boot is already disabled. Just to be sure I tried to reset the config, and the NVMe isn't showing anyway.

Never saw that "Lexar" brand before - is there a chance that this is a "difficult" drive? - see for example the firmware problems with Kingston A2000 drives:
