  1. I have found my problem and it was a foolish mistake on my part. As I stated my USB boot drive crashed which I now believe led to this problem. When I created my new Boot drive and adjusted to PID and the VID in the Grub.cfg I entered the appropriate PID and VID but forgot to enter 0x prefix. In other words I entered the PID as 1234 whe it should have been entered as 0x1234. Problem solved. currently updated and running DSM Release 2 smoothly
  2. I can't even get it to where I can apply that patch. It won't even boot. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  3. I need help!!! I don't even know where to begin. Lenovo M91 Intel I5 3615xs 103b loader (This system has been running flawlessly for YEARS) After reading that most were successful I tried to upgrade my setup to the latest 25426 from 24922. At the reboot everything went to hell. Apparently my USB stick that I had been using for a while decided to commit suicide during this upgrade process. I made a new USB boot stick (proper Vid, Pid, S/N and Mac) and I can get it to boot and I can find it in the find.synology.com and with synology assistant no
  4. I am trying to add a SIL3114 based SATA controller to my Xpenology box. I am noticing that the SATA_SIL.KO has been removed from the EXTRA.lmza. I have installed the card but it is not recognized nor is the SSD attached to it. How would I go about adding a driver for this card?
  5. Have a weird question. I'm wanting to set up a VM using Synology VMM on my Xpenology but don't really want to change my 4 HDD's over to BTFRS. (4 SATA ports is all my current MB has) Can I add a SATA controller and stick in an SSD and then make the SSD a second volume and format it BTFRS and use it for my VM? Will that work?
  6. I'm in the process of swapping my xpenology to a faster machine. The 4 hard drives will remain the same. Do I just swap the USB boot drive to the new machine or do I need to make a new one? Thanks
  7. I am trying to repurpose a Gigabyte motherboard to run xpenology. it is a F2A85X-4UP with an AMD A6 processor. I tried the latest USB boot drive and it booted fine but said eht) not running. It has a realtek PCIe GBE network adapter so I saw where there wasn't a driver for it. So looking at the 'working hardware' list I found that TP-Link TG4368 adapter was working. I bought one and installed it and xpenoboot boots fine but this new network adapter doesn't work either. I get the same message 'eth0 not working'. and it is not visible or available on the network nor in the DHCP list from t
  8. Did you update with the download through Synology or did you have the pat file seperate?? Steve Posted via Xpenology.us
  9. Is there anyway just using the USB boot disk to tell if hardware is compatible with Xpenology without doing a full install. I have an older MB but don't want to risk any of my data. The Motherboard is a Gigabyte F285X-UP4 and the processor is an AMD A10.
  10. If I wanted to switch my xpenology to new hardware will it work?? I will keep the hard drives the same and just move them and the USB drive to a new system. What steps do I need to take and are there any risks of loosing data? Steve
  11. Yes they have. Both written with the same image from the same computer.
  12. I am running xpenology 5.2.5644 R5 on a Dell Vostro 420 and it works beautifully. One small caveat I have is after about 5-7 days the xpenology freezes. The PC is still running but I have no access to it at all. If I pull the power to the unit and plug it back in it works just fine for another 5-7 days. I find no specific error in the logs other than xpenology experienced an improper shutdown and that is from me pulling the power. After I pull the power and restore it there is NO consistency check performed on the disks by the xpenology. I am really not sure how to troubleshoot this prob
  13. It boots just fine with one flash drive installed but not the other, that is what is confusing me. What is wierd is on the flash drive that wont boot, If I start the computer with the flash drive out and then immediately insert the flash drive after I power on the computer it boots just fine. Like I said....really strange. I'll look for a legacy mode in the BIOS.
