NAS Trouble Shooting


I have attempted to setup a nas on a old xeon but have had nothing but problems. It sometimes will boot Nas4Free sometimes won't. Ideally i wanted FreeNas on it but it will never boot as it does this and as you can see for some reason it is distorted and i am just fed up of this thing. If it needs a new processor and main board does anyone  have any recommendations as well

Do you have one of those auto buttons for this monitor. my freenas does this with the monitor. if everything boots fine it should boot past this screen to your freenas. makesure you install on one thumbdrive and remove your installation usb after it is installed. and they cant be the same device. could also just be a corrupt freenas image?
