  1. Hi Trantor, just wondering if you stripped out drivers for physical network cards. I passthrough an intel nic to my DSM VM and it is not recognized by your ESXI build but it works flawlessly with your regular builds meant for bare metal installs.

    You can only passthrough your onboard sata to DSM.

    [SOLVED] Install on vmware ESXI

    Hey Diverge i'm also running a dq77kb. The dq77kb is perfect for esxi, i'm running it with a x4 HBA card and 2 additional GigE NIC's on the full/half height mini-pcie slots. Are you using Vga passthrough for your HTPC? Nope, I haven't passed anything through. For the HTPC part, my Windows 8 VM isn't even activated. The activation nagging is no bother, since it's not even used locally. It only serves as my WMC host. I use an Xbox 360 in WMC extender mode (that remotely uses the WMC on the win 8 VM), that's connected to my TV. After my post yesterday i downgraded to esxi 5.0 U2 and video passthrough is now working with an AMD 7750. 1080p video plays perfectly, i might just replace my current htpc with this VM.

    I converted the 3211 image in the link below to vmdk using starwind v2v image converter. It works perfectly in the ESXI and passthrough and NFS are now working. Using passthrough, I assigned a Nic and my onboard sata controller to my DSM VM and the performance is amazing. 3211 x64 microserver .img/pat https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_Edi7OdbFZla2NPa3MtNkFia3c&usp=sharing Starwind v2v image converter http://starwindfreev2vconverter.en.softonic.com/ Make the folowing selection in starwind Image format: VMware pre-allocated image Virtual disk type: IDE
  9. I have a few questions - I've been trying to do the above but no luck. How do you edit the file on the USB drive for step 1? How do you add files for step 3? The easiest way is to use Winscp. You will have to login as root using the same password for the admin account
  10. No problem, step 3 is for WOL. I mentioned step 4 because that is the only way i have been able to get the disk to spindown.
  11. This is the DSM version i used. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... sp=sharing Here are the steps i used in my install, please let me know if it works. I will also try to duplicate my install on a different HD and usb stick to see if i can get everything working again. Also, i have only tested disk spindown without extra packages installed. 1. Change the Mac adress buy editing grub.conf located on the USB drive. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=910#p4226 2. Activate the WOL setting on your Ethernet adapter. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=665&p=3463&hilit=synoinfo.conf#p1919 3. Modify synoinfo.conf and replace S99ZZZ_Shutdown. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=665&p=3463&hilit=synoinfo.conf#p3312 4. Eject USB drive when system is booted. Disks should now spindown after preset time.
  12. I also want to extend my thanks to everyone who has worked on this project. Like the previous poster i was running Freenas for my data storage needs and Unraid for my media server needs, so i recently decided to give DSM a try to combine both. Within a few hours i was able to get my N54l running with USB support, WOL, and HDD hibernate working consistently. DSM is truly the best of both worlds. Thanks again, i really hope this project continues to grow.
