    Default Dell R210 II Hangs at Syslinux when booting from installation IMG

    Hi all,

    Found my Dell R210 II would hang at Syslinux prompt when booting from the IMG installer. Tried multiple downloads, usb writers and usb flash drives.

    Ended up downloading the ISO and writing to USB with Rufus. Seems to have fixed the issue....

    Any ideas why? Rufus did prompt for an issue with the Syslinux Version?...

    Kind Regards,


    Ryan

    Rufus is better... I've run into many platforms and had that issue with many different installers. The bottom line is the image software that's out there just doesn't handle IMG files correctly. I find using the ISO image, and Rufus almost always works. I don't know why, I just use what works.
