    Use the real MAC address from the NIC or MB you are installing on
  2. Sure....perhaps you should stay awhile and take a look around

    Motherboard advice sought: Fujitsu or Supermicro?

    You seemed to have answered your own question. The Fuji looks to goods

    Adding SSD cache

    I have tried NVMe with adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F9RBP5W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 in PCIe slot with 512GB stick. Only works in DS918+ config and is only read only cache as there is one stick of storage. BTW you can certainly use more than 8 drives in the DS918+

    My build for XPEnology. Looking for advice.

    for transcoding 8700 will work fine but my POV is from power consumption and power on hours. I run my server 24*7 and low power (given $ per kw/h that I pay) is important to me. Maybe not to you so plan accordingly. Ryzen is AMD (Duh) and has it's own requirements but I believe Juno's splendid efforts have counted for that.

    If you are streaming and not transcoding the 8700 is overkill. I run an ASrock AD2550R Atom dual Core. Hardly breaks a sweat streaming to Samsung (smart tv).

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    generator works fine, try another browser 3615xs - 1230LWN003804

    Progress of 6.2 loader

    Alas, my copy is 1.03a2. BTW a thanks to you for suggesting the removal of all the peripherals (keyboard etc) in order to get the boot to complete successfully. I have not put any serious effort into playing with the J3455 system due to performance being sub par and rebuilding bricked system.

    Progress of 6.2 loader

    6.2 is definitely a WIP. I have rebuilt a bricked system for the 2nd time (ASRock J3455M) first time trying to move to 6.2 as a DS918, the second as DS317xs. Yet I have the same mobo successfully running 6.2 from Juno first release of DS918 . I have seen what others have observed, slow boot and transfer with the J3455 setup. The shake out continues........
  14. I followed the steps from other posters based on a 6.2 upgrade failure. My hardware is Intel based (J3455M) vs your AMD (I don't know if this makes a difference). Perhaps try another recovery process from earlier in this thread?
