Hi,

I'm setting up a new equipment with EFW 3.2.2. Installation goes fine, but as soon as it is completed and the system reboots from HDD, it goes to a black screen with blinking cursor. Nothing else happens. I already tried EFW 3.2.2 and 3.2.1 with the same result. Even swapped hard drives.

System Specs are:

  Gigabyte GA-H81M-H motherboard
  Pentium G3260 LGA1150 processor
  4GB RAM
  Toshiba SATA-3 500Gb Hard Drive

I've disabled the serial port console option at the installation, so I guess this isn't the issue.

Anyone has had the same problem before? Any hints?

Ok figured this one out. Had to turn off AHCI for SATA on the board's BIOS. That did the trick.

Ok, this worked for me too. But what if you want to use a solid state drive? You need AHCI for TRIM to work.

Hi,

Had the same issue. Furthermore I initially thought it was a different situation since I didn't see any cursor blinking, just the black screen and nothing else, but this was later discarded by connecting a different monitor which showed the blinking cursor (resolution issues, you know).

In my case, after playing with AHCI/Legacy, UEFI, secure boot and several options from BIOS + several Endian install attempts (versions 3.2.2 to 3.2.5), nothing seemed to work... At the end we installed a Windows System (7) in the machine (HP ProDesk 600 G1) and in the process we found several partitions in the HDD, possibly created by the previous Endian install attempts, such partitions were deleted leaving only one. Windows got installed and we tried Endian install again on this same machine an disk, in this case with successful result: 3.2.5 up and running.

Hope this helps others in the community  Wink
