  1. +1 more for sharing v2.2. It makes sense to keep this available while you finalize the next version. Thanks in advance!
  2. I was able to clear this error by disabling a setting in the BIOS (will have to go back to look at which once specifically) and now have Synology installed!
  3. Resurrecting this post as I'm now actively trying to install on this machine again. I've removed hardware that might have been unsupported (PCI Express Flash Accelerator, InfiniBand adapter, as well as the RAID controller) but I'm still having problems installing/loading. It boots up and gets stuck on the 'Loading module acpi-cpufreq'. It just says BUSY and does not move on. Any ideas as to what might be going on and/or how to troubleshoot further? Thanks! Peter
  4. I suppose I was a bit short on details. I am using Rufus to create a bootable USB image and am actually using XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5644.5 (earlier was a typo).I am able to boot and start the 'installation/upgrade' but it freezes every time I try. It is never at the same place, but has always been while loading a different module. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot? Hardware is a Sun Fire X4270 M2 server and includes the following: -2x Intel Xeon L5640 Hex Core Procs (12M Cache, 2.26 GHz, 5.86 GT/s Intel® QPI) -24GB DDR3-1333 ECC RAM (supports 144GB) -12x 600GB 15K SAS HDDs -4x
  5. Hello- I'm trying to install Xpenology on bare metal, a Sun Fire X4270 M2 box. When I try to boot with XPEnoboot 5.2-5644.4 DS3615xs, it hangs at various stages in the loading modules portion.I tried the debug mode to see what would happen but it just looks to be looping. Any thought/advice on troubleshooting? Thanks in advance!
  6. Those Shuttle boxes are great, I'm using one of those for pFsense firewall. you can easily turns yours into a full hotswap XPEnology with a couple of ICY DOCKs add on i'm using this MB324SP-B and this MB992SK-B They really are great boxes. I actually have one as my main/work PC in my home office. I use this one: ... uctId=1925. I love it because it natively supports 3 monitors!
  7. That's a really poorly written response, content aside.
  8. And what was your reply? That's such a bs reply from them.
  9. Mine is our families private NAS for media and personal files. -HP ProLiant DL385 G6 -CPU: 2x 6-core intel xeon 3GHz -RAM: 64GB -SATA card -4x GB NICS -5x 2TB HDDs in a raid array (4x seagate and 1x WD)
  10. You are welcome, I'm hoping it helps somebody down the road. It was a seriously frustrating pain in the rear! I literally spent DAYS trying to figure it out.
  11. Wow, I finally figured it out. I have been trying just about everything I can from web searches and this finally worked. I had to change a registry entry as detailed below. Unlike the example given in the article, I didn't have the two blank spaces in my entry but it was different. I verified it should be as indicated below by checking my laptop and sure enough, it was. I updated it on my PC, rebooted, and instantly fixed! ... z491ly2FPY HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider\Order, now edit and fix the ProviderOrder ent
  12. Thanks all. AllGamer - my laptop is also running Windows 10 and the windows accounts (local on both) are exactly the same. I even tried creating a new user on the PC and a corresponding account on the NAS but that did not work either. The article you link to is referring to allowing guest access without passwords which is not what I'm trying to do. abced - what do you mean? the username/password is a local account (lets say freebsdrules) on my PC and that same username and the same password I use is on the NAS. rpmurph8411 - you should not need to do any port forwarding for smb sha
  13. So I just tried with the Laptop plugged in (using the same network cable the PC is normally plugged into) and it still works. Both the PC and Laptop have the same username/password which is also setup on the NAS. This is maddening! Any other suggestions?
  14. Thanks for the suggestions. I tried everything except for the laptop wired which I'll do later when I'm back from work. Nothing else worked, unfortunately.
