  1. Does it detect all of the hardware ...the wifi card in particular ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I tried the binary to hex codes...but cant seem to get them to work...any suggestions ?
  3. Just curious if anyone had tried to run Xpenology on a Asus VivoPC or any other mini PC. Any details would be helpful. Thanks!
  4. So I tried messaging around around with some of the values, I am able to get close to see all of the drives but not all of them. @sbv3000 - I did get the sata controller not exactly the same one you have this one is the SI-PEX40065 (which also has a Marvell chipset, its all that was in stock) Drive Config 12 total 6 connected to the motherboard 5 connected to an eSATA port on the SI-PEX40065 SATA Controller Card in PCIe 1x port 1 addtional hard drive connected to one of the SATA ports on the SI-PEX40065 SATA Controller Card Just to mention 1 USB thumbdrive to boot from I
  5. you mentioned about working out the hex values for the disks.....how do you do that. I'm not to familiar with Linux. Thanks!
  6. Just tried your recommended settings, storage manager only shows the 2 internal drives that were just recently added and shows no USB drives. This is really strange.....
  7. it shows the "30" slots i told it i wanted, all hard drives plugged in directly to the motherboard show up and can be added to the drive pools. However (LOL) of the 5 disks that are in the external hard drive enclosure, only 4 show up. I will try your settings and update the thread. I am not sure why any drive on any interface would show up in storage manager.
  8. Currently I have 6 SATA ports on the motherboard, all which have a drive attached to. I added the 5 bay hard drive (which are loaded up with all 5 disks) connected to a USB 3.0 port, but I can only see 4 out of those drives. I intend on adding a SATA controller card to enable my 7th internal drive. The card I am looking at is a Syba 4 port host controller. I want to have additional ports for the future in case I want to add another 5 disk hard drive enclousure should i need more space down the road. So to get this to work do I have the wrong settings. I'm not sure why adding additional di
  9. Actually I ended up finding something that I think would work better for my use case. Startech.com makes a hard drive enclosure where they provide a eSATA to SATA plate. The cable plugs directly into the SATA port on your motherboard and then you plug an eSATA plug from the adapter plate to the hard drive enclosure. It basically should see it as another set of hard drives. Which is strange how it works no problem when connected USB. http://www.startech.com/HDD/Enclosures/ ... 355BU33ERM
  10. Hey All, So here is the situation, I am trying to add additional hard drives on an eSATA interface. I currently am using a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard, I just added a Startech.com 5 bay hard drive enclosure. I currently have 4 hard drives loaded. The bios is set for AHCI and the bios does recognize the drives during boot. The issue that I am running into is that I can see all 4 drives with the USB 3.0 connection however when connected via eSATA I can only see 1 drive. The eSATA connection is using a eSATA to SATA adapter plate and is plugged directly into the motherboard. Also when

  12. Does anyone have any recommendations or experiences with multi bay hard drive enclosures ?
  13. thanks for the heads up, any recommendations on upgrading to 5.2 ?
  14. Hey all, Wanted to reach out to the community and see what is the best way to upgrade from 5.1-5022 to 5.2-5644.1 or if any one know of any recommendations or caveats to watch out for. Thanks!
  15. Can anyone recommend a sata controller. I've ran out of room on my motherboard internal ports. I am looking for something that also has external eSATA ports as I intend on adding an 8 bay hard drive enclosure down the road. Thanks!
  16. I found that if I use the 5.1 boot images I can get the system to boot and install properly.....however I found an additional issue. When I try to make the changes to the synoconfig file to increase the number of drives to 24 or more, I can get the system to recognize all the drive. I can create volumes or disk groups no problem. The issue is when I completely loss power to the server and disk array. Basically unplugging the power from the wall to simulate a power outage. I find that when I bring the system back up, synology assistant says that the server is "migrateable" and i have to re
  17. Hey All, I wanted to reach out to the community and see if anyone has or knows how to install the lastest version of Synology and bootloader on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 Gen3 server, I have tried installing as I have on my other xpenology boxes, but it seems that with the PowerEdge server its not recognizing the NIC's. Additionally I have a Dell PowerVault MD1000 connected to this server and would also like to utilize that hardware as well. I am hoping that someone out there can help. I'd hate to look for another solution as I really like the software. Thanks in advance!
  18. Hello All, I am looking for a step-by-step guide on how to create a the latest XPEnology build on a Xenserver 6.5 I've looked all around the board and internet on for a guided build with screenshots. Can anyone help me get this setup and going. I have enterprise grade hardware which has standard hardware. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
