Description

Hi dear developers,
I tested the latest OpenIndiana USB image (64Bit) more times but All of them hanged on GRUB!
I tried write imaging with 2 ways (dd and windows tools) but all of them hanged on GRUB.
Thanks to resolve this issue.
Regards.

If its really latest, note you do not need the header file, the usb image is entirely self contained.

Can you precise what is the "latest" image getting hung at GRUB?

2016.10 images do not use GRUB but the new loader.

  • Subject changed from The latest OpenIndiana (64Bit) USB image Hanged on GRUB! to 2016.10 USB images hanging at loader prompt

Need more information on the hardware and the procedure followed for writing USB images to the media.
