Help!! FreeNAS setup problem - Your CPU does not support long mode

Hi all

I thought I would make use of one of my old desktops that has been sitting doing nothing in the cellar for ages, so I decided to try and build a NAS box using FreeNAS, an offspin of FreeBSD.

So, I started with this computer:

  • Make: Evesham
  • Intel Celeron CPU (single core) @2.4GHz
  • 512MB DDR RAM, PC133 i believe
  • 80GB IDE HDD
  • DVD IDE drive
  • Floppy drive
  • And the motherboard claims to be made by Evesham, but the northbridge heatsink has msi printed on it so i assumed it was made by them.

I wanted this to have plenty of storage, so i removed the DVD drive (i have a usb thingy to connect it externally), and installed three more hard drives:

  • 40GB @ 7200RPM (I setup the cables and jumpers so this is the primary master drive)
  • 40GB @ 5400RPM
  • 60GB @ 7200RPM

And I changed the BIOS settings so that it would boot first from USB-CDROM (as written in the menu)


So, i started it up, the disc loaded, and then when it came to the options screen (no install option i noted, only boot options), it told me "CPU does not support long mode"

  • What is "long mode"?
  • Is this problem fixable or should I just try another computer?
  • Would it be worth trying an older version of FreeNAS?
I already looked on the FreeNAS forums; other people had this problem but no one had solved it!

Help!


Thanks
Habib

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem

since i'm not a linux person, i can't really solve this, but i can analyze it.

for one thing, what's your objective other that "to see if i can do it"
because if it's storage, a 40GB hdd can give in at anytime, causing you to lose your data.

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem

Its for storage, so that i can access stuff on it from other computers etc.

Why would the hard drives fail?

Oh, and just to clarify, its not linux, its BSD.

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem - Your CPU does not support long mode

It should be simple, grab the i386 version rather than amd64.

FreeNAS - Browse /FreeNAS-8 at SourceForge.net

Btw. It would be interesting if you could blog regularly about the project progress.

(BSD, sometimes called Berkeley Unix) is a UNIX operating system

hard drives fail because everything dies eventually.
using a 40gb hdd is like placing liquid in a plastic bag. it works, but as it gets older, it's less stable.

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem - Your CPU does not support long mode

hmm yes maybe but i have FOUR hard drives in it, so i'm pretty sure they won't all fail at once.

btw. Why does the low capacity make it less reliable?


@ Strider-i will do (if it works, touch wood...)

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem - Your CPU does not support long mode

@hab, the 4 drives won't die at the same time, but what if the one that does die is the one that holds the important data?

Re: Help!! FreeNAS setup problem - Your CPU does not support long mode

Well any important stuff i backup in at least 2 extra places. I have learnt my lesson from flash drives snapping and suchlike. To be honest although i intend to use it for storage, my main intention is really to gain experience and knowledge in using FreeNAS, so that in the future i can build a much better NAS system with high capacity drives (ideally the ones used in cctv systems)
