Would it be possible to run DSM natively on the popular HP Proliant N40L Microserver?

Hello!
This is core and config file that is currently working on my microserver: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5tpWhE ... l3a0k/edit
Unfortunately usb not working properly (like in virtualbox).
I have 5 sata drives and usb flash with xpenology connected.

That's good news. Do we just have to replace those files on the usb created with the synoboot image?

Any other advice? (like specific BIOS settings or similar...)

Thank you. I'll try it a bit later.

Yes! Try to replace xpenology zImage with zImage from my archive.
All modules should normally be loaded.

Default network controller mac address must be set in file, called "vender", with hex editor.

And yes, you need to pull out the usb flash drive, after booting the installer.
Otherwise, it will try to format it.

Is this change really needed in the hardware edition?

This action not necessary, if you have only one device with xpenology (including virtual machines) in your network.

I'm trying it right now, but it doesn't work.... Assistant doesn't detect it.

I have modified the USB with your zImage file.
zImage md5: 22191386e059d1ef731cf6c00fecacb4

This is my current set:

Target: N40L with 8GB Ram ECC with modified BIOS to enable all SATA ports.
Synology Assistant Client: iMac running bootcamp for this, Windows firewall disabled, AV uninstalled.

DHCP Server enabled
All connected to a gigabit switch.

Strange ...
Checksum identical.
Can you try to locate microserver by dhcp lease on your gateway?
If not, I'll make an image from usb stick.
At me it does not always visible.

Nope, there is no IP assigned, I searched for it using NMAP, but there is no additional host.

When I enter BIOS, appears as Atheros AR8132M Nic

Hi XoN,
Thank you for your advise for me in another subject.
But I'm still confused by the below questions. If anyone can help me on this. thanks.
1. How did you modify your USB flash with Nighthawk's zimage file. I got a format notice when I was trying to open my USB flash with XPEnology boot image in Windows.
2. Where I can find the Vender file, I extracted XPEnology image, but didn't find that file.
:?
