  1. Awesome. Same board as (one of) mine. Looks like I've got some catching up to do (as I've been taking a break). Does it run OK?
  2. I meant a legit one - from a known device - rather than one generated; but good to know! Overall, I've had more success with serials that correspond to the model it's known to have been used on (g**gle image search, ahem), than with generated ones.
  3. Anyone tried with a 'legit' serial number - one that corresponds to the model being updated?? Question.. Is there anything we can do - or do we just need to see if a loader update is forthcoming? Maybe the new build 25556 will help - but I doubt it!
  4. Pretty sure (any time I've looked into it anyway) that that's not going to work - as the WWAN slot is M.2 Key E; and they just don't work for any sort of disk.
  5. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3 25426 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.04b DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: YES - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASROCK J3455-itx. Intel NIC in there too and multiple drives. - Additional comments: Worked first time. Automatic, full reboot to login promot. No issues and no need to remove my custom extra.lzma (used prior to previous upgrade).
  6. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2 (24922) update 4. - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.04b DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: YES - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASROCK J3455-itx. Intel NIC in there too and multiple drives. - Additional comments: Worked first time. Manual reboot. No issues and no need to remove the custom extra.lzma (had tested it with a clone of the USB drive and a spare disk beforehand). No immediately visible update to 6.2.3 update 2. Maybe need to wait a while.
  7. Ahh ok. Yeah, possibly an issue with 1.60. Definitely worth trying a downgrade then - somehow!
  8. Have you tried downloading, unzipping and copying 1.70 file - to the flash drive - on a Windows PC? Is it definitely Fat32 file type? Might be worth wiping it and reformatting - in Windows. No idea about Afudos. Mine both worked fine when upgrading within the BIOS.
  9. Can only suggest you make sure it's the correct BIOS file and it's unzipped correctly. There are a couple of versions of this board; so make sure you grab the right one. Can't remember exactly, was 18 months ago or more..
  10. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3 - 25426 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asus H87i-plus with i3 CPU. Intel NIC in there too and multiple drives. - Additional comments: Worked first time. No issues and straight back again after a reboot.
  11. Copy the bios update files (unzipped) to a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive. Boot your PC into the BIOS - you should have a BIOS updater utility somewhere in the menus. Use it, select your USB drive as the source, choose the update file and that should be it. Let it do it's thing and cross your fingers.. You don't need to boot to DOS on a floppy drive (the run a BIOS updater) nor update from within the OS anymore.
  12. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2 (24922) update 4. - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - Asus H87i-plus with i3 CPU. Intel NIC in there too and multiple drives. - Additional comments: Worked first time. I disabled the network team before trying the upgrade. Was back up within 5 minutes. Easy peasy.
  13. Morning all I'm going to give updating to 6.2.3 a go (from 6.2.2). Update reports pages suggest it should work fine - it's a Asrock J3455 board. DS918+ (I have a couple of others to do, but this one first) However, I currently have a custom extra.lzma. It's been recommended this is removed before upgrade? Do I need to replace it with anything in particular - or just remove it? Can't recall if there was one beforehand! I also need to disable the cache and I'll probably break any NIC teams I have in place (just in case). So I guess
  14. All fine.. Transfers to the file shares on the NAS (that VMM sits on) are 110 MB/sec Transfers to the other NAS (where I am copying files to from the VM) are fine if copying from anywhere other than the VM.. Again, about 110MB/sec. It's just when copying from the VM...
