  1. Were you using SHR? Is it always the sda1 sdb1 sdc1 partitions? Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk
  2. Ok so I am continuing my quest to recover my NAS as I hope you'll continue with me along the ride... BIOS is all correctly set up and normal. I thought I'd try both a new USB and the Force Install / Reinstall options - The new USB has improved things a little bit - now it boots reliably to the kernel and I can see the box in Synology Assistant - I also can choose to recover my disks and I can choose a pat file - the new change now is that whenever I choose a PAT file it complains that "Failed to install the file. The file is probably corrupted (13)" so naturally I re-downloaded the fil
  3. Does anyone have any ideas? I've tried searching for other people with the "recoverable" loop issue but they seem to either have solved it themselves and not posted how or it was easy solutions like VID/PID mismatch - could it be worth trying a diff USB stick? I figure it has to be an issue with the update applied though as it can be found via the Synology Assistant... Stumped! Is there anyway of "Reapplying" the manual update pat file in case it was a bad upload or somesuch? Is there a way to wipe the DSM update but retain the data and try again? Any thoughts welcome & very much apprecia

  5. I'm hoping someone can help me too . I had an HP Gen8 Microserver running 5.2 for a while now. It is a “stock” Gen8 Microserver running nothing unusual or out of the ordinary. I finally got fed up of the limits of 5.X and thought I’d make the jump, especially with this wonderfully helpful tutorial and several reports of Gen8 Microservers operating correctly. The machine is fully loaded, with 4 drives set up in SHR and a SSD acting as a cache disk. I followed all the steps, and all was going fine and saw that I was upgrading - however upon final reboot, the Microserver seems to have gon
  6. Thanks, I'll have a dig around and post it I find anything useful. Currently resorted to carrying the laptop back to the printer and plugging it in like some luddite...!
  7. Damn I was hoping you wouldn't say that! It's a device supported on the Synology pages - any idea why it wouldn't work in synology itself? Is there any way I can update/ change the synology provided drivers? I'll have to see if I can print from the app or from a windows box.... so frustrating - makes me tempted to go to a proper OS just to avoid these issues sometimes... but I love DSM!
  8. Oh and the setup you have - exactly the same as mine... :-/ Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk
  9. How did you manually install this? I'm printing from OSX and from google cloud print from various other devices - uninstalling it and reinstalling it didn't work Can't even get a test print out of it!
  10. Hi billat29 Excellent, glad it is working for someone! I'm actually connected wired and am still having the same issue. Any other thoughts? I'm stumped as the box can see it but just refuses to print. Any sense in "uninstalling" the printer and reinstalling? Cheers. Sent from my XT1092 using Tapatalk
  11. Hi Brantje No no, good question always good to check the obvious! Yes it is shared for windows, apple and via Google Cloud Print. None of them work over the network, although all can see the printer - the printer itself just doesn't print except when directly connected to a pc/mac. It is listed as a supported printer on Synology's website...
  12. Hi all First post here - been lurking and learning as much as I can up until now! I've got XPEnology running on a gen8 microserver bare metal - works wonderfully, thank you so much! currently having fun trying to use docker to run a Home Assistant instance... docker could be so powerful on this box! One small issue though - I've got a Samsung ML-1660 B&W laser printer, which while recognised by the system, won't actually print anything. The printer works fine when directly connected to a pc - anyone got any suggestions? I've had issues with a USB wireless card on this machi
