After I installed Native PC (UEFI) some strange behaviour happen.
When I have HDMI pluged in PC the DietPi distro seems to boot properly;
in my router web interface I can see the DietPi IP also I can login through SSH using this IP.
When I unplugg the HDMI and I boot the DietPi PC this can’t occur.
The IP didn’t show up in router interface and I can’t login through SSH.
The DietPI is unreacheable.
I have tried on two diferent small fanless native PCs (Shuttle XS35V4 and Mitac Pluto E230);
the DietPi distro was installed on SSD and updated to 6.30.
On both machines the same behaviour.
. It is impossible to reach through SSH when the PCs were boot with HDMI unpluged.
many thanks on your report. Well without screen attached and without SSH, we don’t know whats going on. Quite hart to investigate. I will do some guessing as I don’t have a native computer running DietPi.
there could be a graphic card/motherboard that require a monitor connected and not able to run headless.
maybe there is an option inside your motherboard config menu allowing to continue booting, even if there are errors detected. Something like “halt on errors”
you could look around for a HDMI dummy plug to simulate a screen. There are plenty of options on Amazon
I will try to find something about video card from manufacturer documentation.
The same here, I will report something about UEFI settings.
I have an HDMI adaptor (HDMI to DVI) and I already tried to trick the PC’s booting with this adapter pluged in but no success.
HDMI dummy plug seems to be more complex than a simple adapter; it is a good point to investigate and test with.
Tomorrow I will use yout suggestions and I will report here.
Thanks for your ideeas and, not last, for your time.
