  1. Cloud Sync Onedrive problem

    I have one folder syncing to OneDrive, and I have two more folders each synced to a separate Google Drive account. Yes, 6.1.5
  2. To SHR or not

    SHR is good if you have mismatched drive sizes. I have SHR enabled on mine because I have 2x3TB and 2x2TB drives, but when I eventually replace the 2TBs with the 3s that I have, I'll go to a RAID-5 If they're all the same, SHR is the same is RAID-5 (SHR-2 = RAID-6)
  3. Cloud Sync Onedrive problem

    I use it in a small office setting and it works with no problems. I also have in synced to 2 different google drive accounts and all three work just fine. Do you have the sync schedule turn on? Does what's in the OneDrive cloud match whats on the NAS (more or less)?
  4. Non-system disk or disk error

    Did you make the USB bootable? Thats a pretty important step. If you used Rufus, make sure to select NOT the UEFI option
  5. Non-system disk or disk error

    Make sure it is set to boot off the USB (and is capable). You may have to hit the 'boot options' key or change a Bios setting or two. Some motherboards only want to boot from specific USB ports as well. Try one directly connected to the motherboard rather than a front-panel one
  6. Have you tried doing it with complete fresh components. Fresh bootloader USB and without your old HDDs to see if that will do it? If you can get a working config, then plug in your old HDDs and migrate. I've had (and seen) issues where an existing DSM install on previous HDDs gets in the way of a new install.
  7. No connection after update

    Is it picking up an ip adress (check the router)? Can you ping it? or assistant find it? If you connect a monitor to it and boot, does it show the normal screens?

    Your x4 NIC may still work, especially if the x1 slot has a notch cut in the back to allow it to fit. You'll just lose the difference in bandwidth (which may not even be noticeable)
  9. I would also like this to work. My guess is the pcspkr module isn't loaded in DSM as a normal synology box uses something other than a BIOS-controlled sound device
  10. Creating loader USB under Windows 1709

    I haven't noticed anything different through all the Win10 versions I've had. Do a DISKPART clean on your stick and try again. Maybe starting fresh will clear the issues up.
  11. Do not see media server from TV/Windows

    Are they on the same Workgroup or domain?
  12. I'm pretty sure you have to specify the port number along with the ip address if you haven't done that already. Same thing with remote connecting to any other service as the NAS is only listening on a specific port. So if you have your router forwarding external port 22 to internal port 22... "x.x.x.x:22" or something like that. You could also forward ports that don't match. I have a random external port forwarded to an internal 5000 so I can access my DSM externally (sometimes).
  13. I had a similar issue, but the fact that the old USB isn't working tells me there might be a corrupted DSM install on your old drives. Start with the basics: 1. VID/PID correct? MAC needs to be different from any other device. If you're copying the MAC from your Windows PC, that will explain why it doesn't work. Make sure you SAVE the updated grub file (I made this mistake once) 2. Network cable plugged in? Seriously, check that there are little lights on the NIC showing its connected. 3. Before powering up anything, unplug the router and plug it back in so it clears the DHCP leases. Then power everything on. 4. Check the router to see if your NAS is pulling an IP address. If it is, try navigating to it directly, if not... 5. Try both Synology Assistant as well as I've had one work where the other doesn't. 6. If nothing works, disconnect your HDDs and plug in a single temporary drive and repeat. If that works, install xpenology as normal, then disconnect the temp drive and reconnect the old ones. Check my "Recoverable Loop fix" thread in the Tutorials section. If none of that works, let us know
  14. Dell R210 II with Jun's 1.02b loader not working.

    Is it picking up an IP address visible on your router/dhcp server? When you say "generated sn/mac" are you not using your hardware mac? If it is picking up an IP address, can you navigate directly to it? I've seen it where going to works when the assistant doesn't (and vice versa)
