  1. Hi all, i am in a spot of bother. My borther inlaw has a HP N54L microserver that had Xpenology 5.2 onboard, the PSU died se he purchased a used HP8 Gen 8 microserver to replace it, i we transfered the drives over and i set about migrating the data from 5.2 to 6.1, i followed all the instructions and the instalation got to the migrate screen where you select the DSM Pat file, at that point i left the room to sday goodbye to some visitors and my genious brother inlaw hit install, whihc installed the latest version. When i returned to the room the NAS had rebooted, he did nt tell em he did this so i assumed somewthing went wrong so i started again, re did the boot loader and wei go back thte migration screen and seledted the 6.1 Pat file it started then came up with the folowing message, can only use 6.2.2-24922 or later. Is there any saving this?

  3. Looks like the USB drive is cactus, it will not boot from it
  4. Hi Polinskiman , thank you heaps for responding Backing up will be an issue as the PSU on the N57L where the drives are is dead so I cannot access the drives What file is it that I make the MAC address changes to?
  5. Hi Simono5 Do you know where I can get the instructions and files to create the new USB, or can the existing one be modified with the new info?
  6. Hi all We have a HP N57L that has been running for around 4 years without issue, about 2 weeks ago the PSU spat the dummy, i was looking for a replacement and came across a great deal on a G8 Microserver. Can i just take the bootable USB stick from the N57L and put that into the G8 along with the drives and that should be it? Sorry if this is ion the wrong section
  7. Hi haydibe So i assume you had to reload the DSM again, i might stick with 6.1 Is there any advantage of being on ds3617xs?
  8. Hi Bearcat, No i only wiped the stick after the issue, i then wiped it and loaded the loader for 6.2 but i thought i would check on here before i did anything futher
  9. Hi all About 6 months back i followed the "Migrating DSM 5.2 to 6.1 Bare metal (tutorial)" tot he letter and installed onto HP Gen 8 micro server and everything worked perfectly. A few days ago i went to log into the NAS and i received the following message "sorry the page you are looking for is not found" with the Synology logo at the top, I tried finding the box via the Synology assistant but did not work, I was considering reinstalling the bootloader and DSM and going to 6.2 but i am unsure if i will be able to migrate my data as i am not able to get into the NAS to back it up. The original USB stick (with bootloader)has been wiped What do you guys suggest? Thanks in advance
  10. Sorry guys, i got it fixed, it turned out to be the bloody USB stick, Damn same as my 5.2 DSM and I tired 2 of them, I tried another Sandisk (different model) and it worked
  11. Hi all, I am hoping someone can please help me with an issue I am having, I am currently running a HP MicroSvr Gen8 G1610T with DSM 5.2 and it works perfectly, but I have come to a point where I want to update to the latest DSM being 6.1 and have come across an issue, I have followed the tutorial to a tee, I will say first off. I took out my 5.2 DSM bootloader USD and created a new bootloader using exactly the same USB stick I have inserted the new bootloader and started the machine I made sure it was still booting from the USB port as the first selection in the bios, the system will boot and right away try booting from NIC which is the last selection in the Bios, even if I reboot and go into the boot menu and select boot from USB it will still try and boot from the NIC, it looks like the USB stick for some reason is not bootable I do not any further than the machine trying to boot from the NIC I have used both Win32diskimager and Rufus to create bootloader images As soon as I put my original 5.2 bootloader back in, it will boot from that no issues at all Please help guys
  12. Hello all i was wondering if someone could please help with a little advice I am running a HP N54L with DSM 5.1-5022 Update 4 and would love to update to the latest xpenology version. What do i need to do (Load first and so on)
  13. Hi all I upgraded to Xpenology 5.1.5022 about 3 weeks ago and all was fine until yesterday N54L would not connect ot he network then after trying a few other cables and rebooting i got her back on the net work until this after noon. The Nus disapeared again of the net work so i tried synology assistant and it did not pick up the NAS, the lights on the NIC are working but i cannot even ping the NAS. I am thinking the NIC might be stuffed. What network card if ok to use and be compatible with Xpenology and the N54L?
  14. Cheers for that i will check it out
