Q: What do I have to select when I want to mount a partition or a software RAID array? Right now I get only “Error Retry”.
A:

Select 'EFI GPT' if you want to mount a GPT formatted drive (default method since 0.684b). If you format a disk on XigmaNAS and you selected UFS filesystem the OS will create one large EFI/GPT(NEW) partition To create the mount you must select EFI/GPT partition and UFS filesystem

Select 1 for UFS formatted drive or Software RAID volume created BEFORE 0.684b. This is the first primary partition on MBR(OLD) partition table. If your disk or SoftwareRAID was formatted using old a version older that 0.684b you must select partition (1) and UFS filesystem. If you import a disk from a different OK(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (1) to mount the first primary partition. Select 2 for mounting the DATA partition if you select option 2 during installation on hard drive. This is the second primary partition on MBR(OLD) partition table. If you have XigmaNAS installed on disk and you selected 2 partitions, you have to select this partition for the reminder of the disk , (data partition). If you import a disk from a different OS(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (2) to mount the second primary partition. This is the third MBR partition. If you import a disk from a different OS(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (3) to mount the third primary partition. This is the fourth MBR partition. If you import a disk from a different OS(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (4) to mount the fourth primary partition. This is the first(5) logical drive on extended(4) partition. If you import a disk from a different OS(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (5) to mount the first logical drive. This is the second(6) logical drive on extended(4) partition. If you import a disk from a different OS(Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) that use MBR(OLD), you have to select (6) to mount the second logical drive. CD/DVD or Old Software RAID Mount old SoftwareRAID(before version 0.68) Mount CD or DVD ( you have to umount before ejecting/removing the media)
