[ CHR ] FATAL ERROR: No harddrives found

Wed Feb 17, 2016 5:10 pm

Hello,

I have been trying to install the CHR image on an OVH VPS but continually get the "No harddrives found" error.

Someone has had a similar issue: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=99793 however they were using the standard ISO rather than the CHR image.

Very much am using the chr-6.34.1.img and the VM boots into the installer, but then throws the "FATAL ERROR: no hard drives found".

The exact procedure i have taken is:
- Created a Win2012R2 VM.
- Attach a 10GB HDD to it.
- Download the CHR image file listed above.
- Used this tool: http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-Raw-Copy-Tool/ to write the image to the drive.
- Rebooted the VM to the newly written drive.
- Installer starts, then throws No harddrives found error.

EDIT:

I just tried again using CentOS and DD to write the raw image to the disk. Same issue:

Below is a hwinfo printout of that same VM booted into CentOS 7.

Re: [ CHR ] FATAL ERROR: No harddrives found

Sun Feb 21, 2016 11:40 am

Update!

Turns out that while the RAW image does not detect a suitable drive, both the VHDX and VDI versions do!

I'm not sure if this is intentional by MTK or not. My (possibly incorrect) understanding was that every variant of the CHR would have every supported driver.

Either way, it works! :D :D :D
