  1. Ok so I solved this issue and was able to install DSM 6.2.2 Update 3 using Juns 1.03b and using a sandisk flash drive vs unknown 1gb off brand. (ViD / PiD being different might have helped) I do want to note that the server or install did hang and brick and to overcome that shutting down the server helped. in some cases the flash-drive was preventing the system from going past the asus splash screen. Having the thumb drive on a usb3 port seemed to work just fine, noting if it did the black screen of death or American mega trends 1 second display that means to power off the server as the usb key is not being found.. odd but up next i hope to get 5.2 to 6.2.2 update 3. Thanks all
  2. @IG-88 so you think maybe some of the problems might be because I have a monitor ie vga present?. I am or attempting to use loader 1.02b since that should be the working or approved method for the ds3615xs and dsm 6.1. Since it bombs out at 65% it formats the disk in 3 partitions and if I attempt to reload or reinstall dsm it wants to migrate. (obviously there's no data) but its picking up the disk was formatted previously. OOh I also wanted to ask do you think I can upgrade from the i3 4310 cpu to a xeon e3 1265L(on the asus h87i-plus)?. On my synology 3612xs I did this and it works fine with updates to 6.2.2, but on the asus im not sure how this will behave with xpenology.
  3. Hi all @IG-88 I might be the 3rd cases lol.. Only thing I can think of is this usb key I did make sure the 0x is in place. so it reads vid 0xcd12 pid 0x058f. Again it could be the usb key which is some cheap off brand 1GB and here I am trying not to use up a nice 4GB kingston u3. I will report back on this. Thanks @Olegin Hi I have done this at least 5 times. still scratching my head in disbelief. @nemesis122 Lifesaver!!!!. I was reading and reading and thinking uh oh maybe im out of luck and this board is beyond depreciated. I started to regret my entire 30tb build I was once so proud of. I will hit you up via PM I first need to find another usb key. Sucks because I just moved and for the life of me I cannot find another usb key at this very moment. When you say mac address the mac generated off the old generator? or the actual nic onboard the asus?.
  4. Hi My question is does anyone have or have successfully installed dsm6.1 chosing ds3615xs on a asus h87i-plus mobo motherboard ie mainboard? I ask because I cannot get dsm6.1 to install on a new single hard drive. only 1 drive is plugged in out of 6. Usb is on usb2 not 3(tried both) Ive followed polanskis man tutorials so which leads me to believe is there a S/N scheme aside from the pid vid and mac to make a difference how dsm6 or 6.1 installs? Using usb and others i can confirm 5x the vid and pid I even formatted the disk on another machine 1st. anyone else have this board that can chime in?. thanks
  5. Thats something I was considering. The main question is can users using a 5.2 loader use the same mac info the 6.x loader? vid / pid is simple but the mac scheme im not sure if thats changed causing the newer loaders not to work properly?.
  6. I would like to try this method on a production server running 5.2. However my previous attempts at getting to dsm 6. on a hp mediasmart server did not work well and I did lose data. having a backup of 30TB is not something I can or plan on doing. Luckily the system I have is a home brew H97I by asus. The other thing I forgot to mention was the whole mac and the model ds3615xs
  7. I had did this well the polanskiman method. I thought it worked in terms of fixing the issue but apparently no.. and believe it or not find.synology does not work anymore for my own personally bought synologys or the running fine xpeno running 5.2 still. I dont know what might have changed via synologys end but the find.syno simply doesnt work (no diskstations found in lan)
  8. I actually gave up on this.. after spending close to almost 2-3 days 10 hours a day i pretty much said forget it.. it just doesn't work..

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    so how far are you exactly on your system?. I am running a mediasmartserver and exactly after the 9th update my system does not want to be accessible via ip or anything. runing dsm 6.02 revision 9 to 10. im open to suggesstions on revival.. as far as i know using a ubuntu disk and doing the mdadm lvm2 stuff doesnt really help me in terms of getting my system to BOOT properly. sure I can access the system volume and folders but what im looking for is something to edit to make it actually boot up. I really wonder what is in update 10 that causes the system to BREAK. What I miss or hope is jun develops a hybrid bootloader for 1.02. the current ones dont play nice with what im testing.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    bingo!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you said what ive been saying for 3 years!. when you want help or to read something valid to a problem your having its not here. Correct again this forum is beyond bloated and 4 years of bloated goodness. No structure no decent enough wiki guides. (polanskiman has stepped up to the plate but its going to require a good couple of months of nonstop updates to make this a better place than what it is) Those that had good guides literally just said eff this place and moved on their own way. I wouldn't blame them. Why write up something when youre talking to a wall?. I wrote some guides on mediasmart server but it was cared for as much as a homeless man peeing on your car... so yeah Another thing that needs to make this place better is update the bb functions. A big rule of thumb to follow here. DONT DO UPDATES, because if it breaks your chances of going back are slim. in some way im greatful for owning a legit 12 synology with quad nics =) lastly if it wasnt for the very few people that make this place what it is we would all be buying a synology. thanks to those that made this project happen.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    is anyone able to get juns 1.02 loader to work with a mediasmart server?. the only one that works for me is 1.00 hybrid. the other arcao one thats 100MB doesnt cut it. but the uefi hybrid boot one that is 200MB works for 6.02 but after update 9 the system is done for.. will there be any verbose output like the other bootloader which was pretty helpful in troubleshooting, if init.d is stuck
  12. thanks it does funny how it was made yesterday and before everything was more scattered than a drunk mans vomit. polanskiman is stepping up to the plate and slowly turning this dump forum around +) I basically keep bricking my box because damn updates i went from nothing to update 6 and the box is dead in the water. at times like today im shouting **** synology... wipe format start from zero times 10. It gets annoying after a while so I will keep staying on juns 1.01 loader because that version 2 is a no go!. the network card issues. so i can load dsm 6 but the high cpu spikes makes me want to update to 6.02 update 11. so starting from zero again
  13. so another update i changed out the version revision under etcdefaults VERSION file. Now the nas does this when you try to hit connect ( Sorry, the page you are looking for is not found.) so uhm yeah long story short dont fart around with btrfs
  14. I wouldnt try any of this as it will brick your box I will play roulette and try to downgrade but im not even sure if thats going to let me toss 6.02 back on my box. for the millionth time can there be a thread link to all the updates? after some digging here is a link to all the updates for dsm 5.2 -6.0 https://usdl.synology.com/download/DSM/ ... date_pack/
  15. so i attempted to do this, and there are a few points missing. 1. apt-get install mdadm lvm2 Failed... could not find host error installing. 2. To fix that you must do a sudo apt-get update first before attempting anything here in this article or else it will not work. 3. when running these commands via live ubuntu usb sudo was needed or else read only fail will happen every single time. I made changes once the disk was mountable to the @updates/VERSION and switched it from 6 major 1 minor to 6 and 0 minor.
