    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I'm wondering the same. I'm on DS3617xs and thinking about switching to DS918 if there'll be no further updates. Crossing fingers for Jun's magic. 🤩👍
  2. What is the hardware requirements / BIOS settings needed to make VMM run correctly. I built a new machine with a i5-6500 CPU and lots of RAM etc and I'm having problems installing Windows 10 and Ubuntu. The systems doesn't even boot. ubuntu gets kernel panics and WIndows 10 bluescreens. I just managed to install Windows 7 Pro and that's it. So I tried to install the same version of Synology, with the same boot loader and same updates on another machine. This time with a Intel Socker 1366 CPU... And on this machine Ubuntu works just fine. Both CPUs supports Virtual Technology etc. So the only thing I can think of is that there has to be some difference in hardware. Therefore I'm interested to know what needs to be enabled / disabled to make VMM work like a charm?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I'd love to put the bootloader on an SD Card instead of a USB Stick. How does that work with the VID / PID values. How do I find the correct ones? And can I "clone" my USB stick to the new SD Card and it'll with (after editing the grub.cfg file ofc)?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Should work fine without a reinstall. Edit the grub config file to include the proper boot arguments. http://quickconnector.orgfree.com/index.php Thanks! One more newbie question: Do I have to actually flash my NIC with the MAC address?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I've managed to install this on an ASUS VivoMini VC65R with 4 hard drives in RAID 5 and it works really great. Now I want to reinstall it and this time I want to add a new serialnumber and MAC before the install so I can use my Synology Account. How do I add the new serial and MAC address to the bootloader before I do a fresh install? I would be greatful for a small step-by-step instruction. Or can I change serial and MAC on my current install without any problems?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Use Starwind to convert from IMG to VMDK (export as VMWare ESX Server image). It will create two files, one VMDK and one VMDK flat. Upload the two VMDK files to the datastore. Create a new VM in ESXi, add a new, existing HDD, point to the VMDK without flat in the name, finish setup, start the VM, let it boot until you see "Booting the kernel" message, then go to Synology Assistant and install on the freshly created DSM (it may take a few minutes until it appears in the list). Over. Thanks! I've managed to boot it and install DSM! Just this kind of step-by-step guide a newbie like me needs. I've added a couple of VDs but DSM doesn't seem to be able to breate a RAID group or even format them. Any ideas on what I'm doing worng?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I've tried to install using ESXi. I can't seem to add the USB drive to my virtual machine so I can boot the bootloader. Anyone that can help me with how I set up ESXi to work?
