  1. Hi @IG-88, Thanks for quick response.. The board is a ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 with Realtek 8111F NIC and Intel H61 Express Chipset I'll give the base 3615xs image a try and see if we have better luck.. I did try it first, but had modified the .cfg to include s/n and mac address. Should have mentioned that.. Thanks again!
  2. Been searching and searching.. trying to help my dad update his NAS.. He's running an older Sandy Bridge thats has 1.02b as DS3615xs on DSM 6.1.7.. works good.. but trying to move to 6.2.3/4 with 1.03b is turning out to be a challenge.. My initial test I took out the existing drives and put in a drive I didn't care about. Booted with the new USB stick.. that went ok, but no network. We're trying to stick with DS3615xs to avoid migration process.. that and it's and older sandy bridge cpu.. I'm copying over the test extra.lzma and replacing the existing one.. but to no
  3. Anyone check to see if Jun Loader works with 6.1 yet? Also, didn't Synology say they were publishing Source finally upon release of 6.1?
  4. OK, so here is what happened to me with Update 9 .. at least for me, is it's reset the NIC to DHCP. I had to use Synology Assistant to find the DHCP IP address.. once I did that, was able to get back in and set it back to its static IP address. Everything was good after that.
  5. I'll likely give up and get a real Syno box before they release the source.. Just waiting for them to update the 8 bay model myself. I've decided I prefer to not hang in the wind with XPE; some features I've been waiting on. I'm really hoping for the 5 and 8 bay models, they add either M.2 or mSATA ports internally this time so we don't have to take up 2 drive bays for SSD Caching. Yeah, I know.. thats like asking for a better CPU .. Unicorns will likely fly first.. but, one can hope.
  6. Yes and no.. it would completely depend on how they did it.. If it was a no support model for software only, then you'd still see many, many people buy the 'supported' version with the hardware.. Since the cost of support is basically what you're paying extra for. Also, Enterprise level hardware (rack systems) IT generally is not DIY. They'd likely still sell many enterprise systems regardless as well as extended support contracts.. So it wouldn't be a cut/n/dry situation if they did sell it for a low cost. In the end, if they did a low-cost, or even free version, w/no support, you'd
  7. Figured we'd hear some news by now.. Is their a GitHub or anything? or is their anyone working on 6.0 for expenology?
  8. Kind of.. they specifically use Virtual DSM as an example of running different versions of DSM. Just don't know how far that goes when it comes to major release versions. I think it's intended to allow you to go 'backward' to previous versions.. not forward.. So while you could keep someone at DSM VM 5.2, on a 6.0 system, installing a 'newer' version in a DSM VM is probably not something it was designed to do.
  9. Yeah. I am actually in need of several of it's features.. Including LetsEncrypt, new file system, and want to put to use the new MailPlus Server... I'm seriously looking at buying the DS916+ right now .. lol
  10. Not something I'd want; just to big and noisy.. Not something I'd want near my living room. lol Often it's worth it to build a more expensive rig to get a compact unit to gain some peace and silence. Cost isn't the only factor in a NAS build..
