Ok so the time came to upgrade XS from 6.5 to 7.1. My setup is simple enough, I have the Dell SD card thingy where XS 6.5 is installed, and then I have one big RAID for storage of everything else.
I don't remember the initial install of XS being anything complicated. But anyway, I've now installed XS 7 three times trying to get it to work but it's not.
The first time I used the "upgrade" option, this ended with an error "the new partition table could not be written but was reverted successfully: Could not create partition 1 from 46139392 to 83888127
Error encountered; not saving changes."
After system reboot, I still had functional 6.5 but the storage repository was now "unplugged" and "not usable by this host." swell
So I said screw it and just did the clean install instead. This went through no problem. I created my password, setup static IP stuff, set time etc etc, then it kicked out my install DVD and wanted a reboot.
The system reboots, and loads up a nice old XS 6.5! Ok that's weird.
I did the install a 2nd time, also clean install, making sure to carefully check each screen. The only screen that has anything to do with storage is when it asks me where I want to store VMs, and I choose the big RAID.
Once again, I reboot, and up comes 6.5.
I have no idea where XS 7.1 is supposedly installing to, it doesn't ask me where to install to, it just does it on its own I guess. But there is my 6.5 still untouched.
Obvious question here, why isn't it installing to the SD or upgrading on the SD? It's not even asking where to install too. It must have installed somewhere right? And now my SR is offline.
I must be missing a step here.
