    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I have this LSI controller. The new loader is able to load but after DSM install, it is not responsive to any power commands via DSM web GUI, eg. Shutdown or restart. Anyone else experiencing power issues?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I've rebased the vendor changes on 3.10.77 to 3.10.102, seems still works. jun your are the MAN Next step is I think to troubleshoot the network issue on some system that "prevent" network driver to load at boot. How can I (or the community) help you to debug ? How do you display/access the early boot stage without serial console ? Hi Trantor, I noted you included a list of supported hardware. I checked that my network card, Intel 82576 is on the list but I am experiencing the following on attempting to use the following bootloaders: A. Jun's 6.0.0 : network light blinks but no local IP found B. Jun's 6.0.2 : network light blinks, then goes out. No local IP found C. Jun's 6.1-alpha - network light blinks continuously. Local IP found. Able to install DSM 6.2 . Pat file.6.2 accepted.Sytem reboot unsuccessful. Had to manually press reset button to reboot. Boot up is ok. In DSM 6.1, system Does not respond To power related commands from within DSM 6.1, like restart or shutdown. Do you know how I can solve any of the above issues?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I've rebased the vendor changes on 3.10.77 to 3.10.102, seems still works. Dear Jun, I checked that my onboard supermicro NIC or Ethernet chipset, Intel 82576 may not have it's driver included in the 1.01 version of your bootloader. To install DSM, would you suggest that I either: A. Use a stable version of 5.2 that includes my existing Ethernet chipset drivers? OR B. Buy a new Ethernet PCI-E card with a supported chipset and then use version 6 with version 1.01 of your bootloader? **If I go with option B. , do I need to disable the onboard Supermicro NIC during the install? Or will your bootloader automatically detect all available NICs and use the one with supported drivers to put out DSM's internal network IP?

    Baremetal Install Troubleshooting

    Thanks Salah, I agree that Supermicro doesn't have the best BIOS out there. However with the server accepting version 5.2 5644, I would have to say it's still pretty acceptable, right? What's your experience like?

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Hi guys, I am keen to Install DSM 6 on my baremetal server. my baremetal Install is currently smoothly with version 5.2 5644. I have tried Jun's loader but the DSM's internal IP was never found so later I checked that the onboard supermicro NIC or Ethernet chipset, Intel 82576 may not have it's driver included in Jun's bootloader. Oh man, look like I may have to either: A. Use a stable version of 5.2 that includes my existing Ethernet chipset drivers. OR B. Buy a new Ethernet PCI-E card with a supported chipset and then use version 6 with Jun's bootloader. **If I go with option B. , do I need to disable the onboard Supermicro NIC during the install? Or will Jun's bootloader automatically detect all available NICs and use the one with supported drivers to put out DSM's internal network IP? Any one familiar with this?

    Baremetal Install Troubleshooting

    Thanks bglf83 and billat 29, I went through all my steps again and realized I was not using the matching Pat file with the lead bootloader. After correcting that, my baremetal Install went smoothly with version 5.2 5644. I noted you tried version 5.2 5592 to be stable. *May I ask where can I download the bootloader and it's matching pat file? *Some of the well known Xpenology sites that provide download repositories are not always online. I also tried Jun's loader but the DSM's internal IP was never found so later I checked that the onboard supermicro NIC or Ethernet chipset, Intel 82576 may not have it's driver included in Jun's bootloader. Oh man, look like I may have to either: A. Use a stable version of 5.2 that includes my existing Ethernet chipset drivers. OR B. Buy a new Ethernet PCI-E card with a supported chipset and then use version 6 with Jun's bootloader. **If I go with option B. , do I need to disable the onboard Supermicro NIC during the install?

    Baremetal Install Troubleshooting

    Hi bilat 29, Well, regarding what I am doing: I am really trying to get a working install of DSM on my server. Yes, I'm just like most people here, who will of course 'try everything' that possibly comes to mind to solve the issue. Regarding your question of LSI card, there are 2 answers to this: a. I have already tried the install without the LSI card, and ended up with the same 'migration loop of death'. b. LSI card seems to be working well for our forum user: snoopy78 as you can read from: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6772 Version of bootloader: XPEnoboot 5.2-5644.5 DS3615xs Download source: http://xpenology.me/downloads/ Pat file: DSM_5.2-5644 Download source: http://download.synology.com/download/D ... s_5644.pat Am I doing something right/wrong? Anything I should be adding or modifying? Thanks again for helping me look into the this.

    Baremetal Install Troubleshooting

    Hi Elpee, Thanks for the reply! I tried what you suggested: formatted 1 drive with Windows, reinserted that 1 drive. Booted that 1 drive with Bootloader USB and the same issue occurred again. What should we do next to avoid this 'migration loop of death'?

    Thanks

    Hi Siri_Uk, Great to hear your positive results! Could you share your steps? I know there are lots of superb guides here but many of us are experiencing installation issues and all the help would be most appreciated.

    Baremetal Install Troubleshooting

    Hi guys, I am a newbie with Expenology so do forgive me if my questions seem naive. Well, I installed Xpenology quite smoothly on my PC as a virtual machine but when I tried installing Xpenology on a bare metal server I am getting a continuous loop of DSM asking me to migrate/reinstall. I have spent hours, actually weeks, reading various forum posts so I know a bare metal install is possible but I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I have used the USB method, editing the PID, VID, serial number and Mac address in the.cfg file I am trying to install DSM 5.2 5644 Can I seek some help here? My baremetal server specs are as follows: Supermicro motherboard X8DTN+ CPU: 2 x Xeon E5645 RAM: 24GB ECC Backplane: BPN-SAS2-826EL1 826 backplane with single LSI SAS2X28 expander chip Raid Controller: LSI 9211-8I JBOD HBA CARD Hard drives: Tried various HGST HDDs and Samsung SSDs with same result
