  1. I was able to recover my HDDs by downgrading using this guide I installed back 6.2.1-23824 which seems to work just fine. However DSM was showing an update, 6.2.1-24XXX-4 (sorry can't remember exact numbers) which I accepted to install because it was still 6.2.1 and IT BRICKED IT AGAIN!. What's going on here?
  2. Hello @IG-88 Thanks so much for your work. I had a 6.1 DSM working but wanted to try with DSM 6.2.2. My Xpenology is a 918+ and my hardware is a Dell Optiplex 9020 that comes with an Intel i217LM, which sadly seems to not work with the 1.04b loader. I've bricked my NAS now I've tried to follow your insutrctions and copy the extra.lzma and extra2.lzma to the USB, but when I connect it to Windows I just can't read the USB stick, it will just ask for format. What I was able to do is to modify the synoboot image and copy those files there, then writing again the image to the USB stick. When booting the PC I get the migrate screen, click next, select the latest PAT file for my NAS ( it installs, restarts and I'm unable to connect again (no ping on IP either). I'm not entirely sure what else to do. I know that if I format my HDDs I can install it again, but I will lose all my data. I'm also not sure how to downgrade, because even if I burn the original 1.04b loader on the USB and at boot select the Reinstall option, when the DSM installation ask for the PAT file it won't accept anything below 6.2.2 now (see image below) Any help will be greatly appreciated, really looking forward to access my data again :D. Thanks!
  3. Thanks so much man, that's what I was doing actually! I read that you had to put the drives in the same position (so Disk 1 in your bare-metal has to be Disk 1 on your VM) but the VM already got 2 (sata0 and sata1) for booting up the system, so not sure if it will work... anyway I'm scrubbing my RAID because I erased the 2 SSDs I had for cache on Synology to install Proxmox and now my RAID is crashed LOL
  4. Nevermind, I took a look at some articles and it seems you need to use the --storage option
  5. Just tried this but I'm getting an error when restoring it (and then when I power on the VM there's no boot device and it restarts in a loop) restore vma archive: vma extract -v -r /var/tmp/vzdumptmp40639.fifo /var/lib/vz/dump/vzdump-qemu-xpenology-3617xs-6.1_15284.clean.vma /var/tmp/vzdumptmp40639 CFG: size: 471 name: qemu-server.conf DEV: dev_id=1 size: 54525952 devname: drive-sata0 DEV: dev_id=2 size: 6442450944 devname: drive-sata1 CTIME: Sat Jan 5 08:52:16 2019 command 'set -o pipefail && vma extract -v -r /var/tmp/vzdumptmp40639.fifo /var/lib/vz/dump/vzdump-qemu-xpenology-3617xs-6.1_15284.clean.vma /var/tmp/vzdumptmp40639' failed: storage 'LVM-SSD' does not exists root@pve:/var/lib/vz/dump#
  6. Just a quick question from a noob trying to learn Proxmox to virtualize DSM there (currently on bare-metal). I would like to passthrough all my disks so I can restore all my data and configuration... would this be possible by adding the physical disks to the VM? I'm currently on 6.1.7 with 3617xs on bare-metal as I said

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Hello! I'm currently running Jun's loader 1.02b with 3617xs+ and DSM 6.1. Everything is great and super stable, however my Intel Xeon E5 2698 v4 is only recognised as a 16 core CPU (instead as a 20 core/40 threads). I was wondering if it will be worth trying bootloader 1.04 and DSM 6.2.1 to try to fix this problem. Aside from that I'm not sure there's a huge difference between 6.1 to 6.2.1 (tried to search on internet but nothing fancy so far)
  8. Hello guys, I have Xpenology 6.1 installed on my server and the only problem I'm finding is that I'm not getting all my precious cores usable.

  9. Hello guys, I was thinking about building a new NAS for my home and I was wondering if any of you is using successfully any 1151 mother board (latest socket from Intel). I was thinking for example in the ASRock Z170M-Itx. How is the new Intel Z170M chipset working? Thanks for any info!
  10. I've got some news! I tried booting from USB with Xpenoboot and it worked great. I installed the .path file without problems and used my SSD as a disk to create a volume inside Xpenology. It seemed that all was recognised well, with the exception of the fan which I guess I can control with the BIOS!. I haven't tried connecting my RAID1 disks as I was afraid to screw them
  11. Hello! Thanks for this tutorial! I was wondering if I could install Xpenology on QNAP NAS too. I recently got a 451+. I've got a few questions that if you feel you have a bit of time would be great to know. 1. I've been searching through this forums and also on QNAP's one to see how do I reinstall QNAP OS in case I don't want to keep Xpenology. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems the NAS comes with a memory built in where is the system and installation wizard that after will be installed into your disks, so I will always have that memory to restore QNAP system if I want to and not overwrite it! Another doubt I had, which it seems answered on this thread is regarding data on the drives. I've got 2x4TB WD RED in RAID1 where is the system installed, but I've also got 2 single volumes (1x 2TB disk and 1x3TB disk). Could I use these somehow to backup the data there and then regenerate the RAID1 on Xpenology and copy it back (mostly backups, movies, shows, etc). Thanks!
  12. BTW, anyone knows if the software RAID that creates QNAP NAS and Xpenology are compatible? or I will have to recreate the RAID 1 I currently have on my QNAP NAS? I'm planning on testing it today, if it works install the Xpenology system on an SSD disk I'm currently using as cache for the QNAP and then connect the the RAID1 disks I have and see if they are recognised without having to create it again. What do you think? sounds like a good plan?
  13. Hello guys... First of all, I know... it doesn't make sense to buy an expensive QNAP box to put another OS inside of it. It's my fault for not knowing about Xpenology. I've installed it on a Virtual Machine inside my QNAP NAS and it's so much snappy and better, I absolutely love it. Also it looks nicer than the QTS (OS from QNAP). I was wondering one thing... I'm not sure if all my hardware is compatible but I will find out by booting with Diskstation... however what I'm really worries is that I currently have a RAID 1 where all my data, backups, etc are. Is there a way to know if it will work the RAID or I will have to rebuild it?. Thanks!
