I cannot get volumio x86 to boot in my Acer Aspire X1700. It’s an old BIOS based SFF with an Intel Dual Core and an nForce chipset.
I have tried flashing both the latest version and version 2.699 on two separate flash drives, using etcher and then rufus, but no dice. Only a newer UEFI based system booted, but I can’t use that one for Volumio.
On the failing machine, I see the SYSLINUX text string, then it flashes to black for an instant, this SYSLINUX text comes back, and I notice that the flash drive activity LED stops flashing, so it stops reading. Nothing else happens. No Volumio logo or anything. It appears to hang during boot.
Any way to fix it?
