    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........
  4. 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?
  5. This is a variation of the 'Clean Drive' downgrade process I've described before in several threads 1) Disconnect your raid drives - Did this 2) Connect spare HDD to SATA port 1 - Did this 3) Install DSM 6.x from fresh 1.02b loader, create admin user and server name matching live system, DONT create volume/raid. Update DSM to match your pre-beta version - Did this actually tried to install a PAT version earlier than the last version I was running. Syno Assistant told me which version I had to install and so I did. 4) Shutdown, reconnect raid drives to SATA ports 2-n - Did this but shutdown system at about 10% rebuild process. It occurred to me that leaving the spare HDD in to be part of the rebuild is redundant. 5) Boot, login, repair system partitions on raid, Shutdown Did this 6) Remove spare HDD and reconnect raid drives to SATA ports 1-n - Did this 7) Boot, repair packages etc My additional steps would be to power down the server between drive swaps and update DSM on the clean drive to the version matching the one running before crash. The above was posted by SBV3000 and many thanks. I did make a couple of changes to shorten the process. It worked for me but no warranty implied Everything in coloured text is mine, all else belongs to SBV3000 and others

    DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2

    - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2-23739 UPDATE 1 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03a2 - DS918+ - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASROCK J3455-ITX  - Additional comments: Board has 2 SATA ports only so two more 2 port cards added. Reboot is much faster than prior to update. This is quite a snappy unit now
