  1. When you install DSM, a system partition is created on each of the hard drives you have in your system. This system partition on each hard drive is where DSM gets installed. Once you have your system up and running you could actually remove the boot-able thumb drive, as it is not needed for normal operation. If you did pull the thumb drive you would need to reinsert it to boot again. I would say your network card is compatible with the version of the boot loader you have on the thumb drive, but after DSM gets installed, DSM does not have the correct network driver for you network card. Also, it would help in troubleshooting , if you gave a description of your motherboard, network card, boot loader version and what version of DSM are you trying to install.
  2. Hello rickym, I have a couple motherboards I am testing which are running the DS918+ boot loader and DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 2. When I set them up initially, I used the 1.03a boot loader and a graceful shutdown was normal When boot loader 1.04b became available, I thought I would switch to it. When I made the switch I discovered a graceful shutdown was not possible. So I just reverted back to the older boot loader. The older 1.03a boot loader only recognizes Intel Network Interface Cards. I am using a couple ASRock J3455-ITX motherboards and have the internal Realtek NIC disabled. I threw in an Intel NIC in the PCIe slot. A little inconvenient but I didn't want to take a chance on corrupting the test data by doing a hard shutdown. Something else I could not get to work with the 1.04b boot loader was hardware transcoding. I have it working with the older 1.03a boot loader.

  4. Hello, I would check the USB boot order in your bios. I have 3 USB External Drives for backup hooked up to my xpenoloby box plus the USB thumb drive which it boots from. In the bios I have the USB thumb drive as the first boot device. I hope this helps.
  5. After upgrading to jun's lastest 918+ boot loader 1.04b, ASRock J3455-ITX motherboard does not perform a graceful shutdown. Can't perform a reboot from the DSM GUI as It hangs on shutdown.

  7. Loader version and type (918+): 1.03a2 DS918+ DSM version in use (including critical update): DSM 6.2-23739 Update 1 Using custom modules/ramdisk? If yes which one?: None Hardware details: Motherboard: ASRock J344-ITX; NIC: Realtek 8111GR
  8. After you install DSM 6.1.7 using 1.02b loader, you may want to change your Control Panel Update & Restore settings. The following setting will only show you "important and security updates only, while retaining the current version of DSM." As IG-88 stated, each major release of dsm requires a new bootloader. There is also a setting that will automatically install all DSM and Important updates; this should not be selected using xpenology boot loaders. I hope this info is helpful.

  9. I have other motherboards running DS3615xs and DS3617xs without any problems. I have a couple ASRock J3455-ITX motherboards I am testing Jun's 1.03a2 loader. A failed update is positive feedback to Jun, indicating there could be a problem with the loader. Currently, it is only alpha. I was able to do a reinstall on the J3455-ITX which reverted the system back to the previous state before the update. The ASRock J3455-ITX's are only test systems. No harm done other then the time to do the reinstall. Thanks for your feedback.
  10. I just tried the DS918p 6.2-23739 Update 1 on a baremetal ASRock J3455-ITX using Jun's 1.03a2 loader and after the automatic reboot, the update experienced a kernel panic.

  13. No, as I don't think the boot process completed correctly. Usually, with a normal boot using the older 6.1 DS3617xs image the boot completes with "Diskstation Login". At that point I can login through the serial port. When booting the 918+ image it has problems with one module and performs a trace, the boot continues and states network modules are loading ok but the boot process stops at the Loading module synobios ... does not complete to "Diskstation Login". I disabled both internal NIC's and I installed another network card which has a Realtek RTL8111E chip. Same results. I can't determine what module the boot process is having a problem with. Thanks for your help.
  14. I disabled/removed each adapter one at a time. With the Ugreen using the RealTek RTL8111G chip, the boot process proceeded a little further. I still get the crash at the start but modules continuing loadiing. It loads OK the " :: Loading modul[ 6.349374] e1000: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 7.3.21-k8-NAPI [ 6.357725] e1000: Copyright (c) 1999-2006 Intel Corporation. e e1000 ... [ OK ].
