The Adapter card you got is a pci-e X16 interface card usually used for adding a first nvme or a second nvme to allow for raid 0 and 1 and therefore automaps to match your existing nvme if you have one installed.

As you already had a nvme installed and didn't want the raid function, you should have got a X4 card which would have assigned a different configuration and looks like https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Controllers/SATA-&-SAS-&-M.2/76905-ORICO-PSM2 and used the x4 slot.

You should still be able to separate them in the 'bios' firmware though, if your firmware allows two independant nvme 'drives'. You may need to update it though.


I will need to have another look at that adapter card. it seemed that most of the pins are not used, only those at one end go to the m.2 socket.

I couldn't see anything in the uefi bios for separating them.
The uefi setup doesn't even see the nvme drive plugged into the adapter card, so I cannot boot from it. I tried, with an esp fat32 partition in that drive, but it isn't seen at bootup.

After bootup, both are seen, and everything is working fine.

I had the same boot failure after my first upgrade of easyos ...
Until now now i always did an new install, but not this time (want to preserve my adjustments.

Thanks for the quick solution, BK


Yes, I also posted to my blog about it:

BCRYPT
The program bcrypt (Menu -> Personal -> "Bcrypt file encryption") has not been working for a long time. I don't know if this is still useful in EasyOS

I think this is because a weakness/vulnerability in bcrypt was reported as a bug and Debian patched it to disable encryption but leave it available (with a warning) in case anyone needed it to decrypt anything.
If you want it to encrypt as well you can just compile the source and substitute the executable, bearing in mind that the "bug" exists.
This reply was posted from NetSurf 3.10 in EasyOS 2.3.2


I have modified the GUI so now uses 'ccrypt', see blog post:

https://bkhome.org/news/202006/ccrypt-file-encryption-gui.html

it only encrypts single files, though ccrypt is capable of recursion, so a folder could be inputted and everything in it encrypted -- but the GUI doesn't support that.

If you can't see it in setup, then your 'bios' is not setup to have nvme boot selection and it's relying on the default drive functions in the bios to show it. Try checking the base vendors website for an update, although most of those I checked (I have a few links) don't seem to have got that far yet and a couple clearly state they will only support a single nvme unless in raid configuration so you may be out of luck. However with ssd-usbc now supporting thunderbolt (with speeds of read up to 3400MB/s, write up to 3000MB/s) i'm not sure if nvme can be justified except as a cache as you only need a cable adapter to turn usbc to usb3.0/usb2.0.

And i'll leave it here as were getting ot.

Barry,
as you thought, the original partition sdb2 that failed the mount does not have journaling enabled. The new partiton sdb3 has journaling as per the 2.3.2 release.

Thanks for your assistance and continued development.

@ 6502coder

All in all, Dedomideo obviously intended to write a fair review.

However, if he had payed some more attention to Barry's release notes, his installation issues 'easily' could have been avoided, and the report could have been kept free from the somewhat misleading connotation that the 'handling' of EasyOS (download, installation, configuration) requires special effort and knowledge!

kind regards

Nice,

I will remake my dedicated easyos "install/repair" thumbdrive when you come out with refind included in the next version release.

Do you have a link to a resource with boot codes for refind? I might want to migrate from grub 4dos. I have various puppys and dogs in the kennel as frugal installs on ext partitions already.

Is this what you need?:

Note that rEFInd boot manager is only for PCs with UEFI BIOS firmware, not the old pre-2012 BIOS PCs.

Thanks for this fix.
