[SOLVED] Failed to import pool ‘rpool’; ssd ko ? No go to X570D4I-2T BIOS!


Dec 16, 2020
My Proxmox server worked very well.

But I changed it from computer case to add more hard drive
But now I have the next message when I start it.

Begin : Importing ZFS root pool ‘rpool’ … Begin : Importing pool ‘rpool’ using defaults … Failure : 1

Failure : 1

Command : /sbin/zpool import - N ‘rpool’

Message : cannont omport ‘rpool’ : no such pool or dataset

Destroy and re-create the pool from a backup source.

Error : 1

Failed to import pool ‘rpool’

Manually importt the pool and exit.

BusyBox etc etc

(initramfs) _

I have test to execute zpool status but I have no pools available


I have remove my new HDD and I have reboot but I have the same message....

PVE is installed with 3 SSD in RAIDZ-1.
How do I know if my hard drives are well detected ? And are still "living' ... fdisk, lsblk are not found

When I run blkid, I have something like :
/dev/sda2: UUID = "xxx-xxx" BLOCK_SIZE="512" TYPE="vfat" PARTUUID="xxx-xxx-xxxxx..."
/dev/sda3: LABEL = "rpool" UUID= » xxx» UUID_SUB="xxx" BLOCK_SIZE="4096" TYPE="zfs_member" PARTUUID="xxxxxxxxx"
/dev/sda1: PARTUUID="xxxxxxx"

I am not fluently with ZFS … Can you help me for this issue plz ?
Thank You

PS: PVE was "up to date".
OK I have it !

So ... I have tested my SSD with a dock, they are ok,
So it's something else.
With blkid ... I only have sda ... the SSD M2 ...
And I remembered something last night ...

My proxmox mother card is ASRock X570D4I-2T, this mother card have 2 OCuLink.
AND this port are not in SATA by default but in PCIe ...

So, In BIOS: Advanced -> Chipset configuration -> OCU1 Mode Selection: [PCIE] to [SATA].
And it work's !
