  1. You should be able to, move the disks into another pc however it will depend on the hardware in the old pc so it would be worth testing it with a spare HDD to be sure it will work, make sure you install the same version that your N54 is running. As you already know you will need to flash the bios to use the 5th sata port, it's pretty easy & should be fairly painless. Search for the bay bios. You can remove the disks & USB to test free as etc, however I would number the disks & put them back in the same order.

  3. Were you trying to install 6.2 or 6.2.1? As for 6.1.7 you should be ok applying the minor updates.
  4. @a575606 Your CPU is too old to work with the 1.04 loader, I would suggest trying 1.02b with DSM 6.1.7. Also ensure you have set the USB's vid & pid correctly & set the MAC address to your servers lan card.

    GA-Z68XP-UD3, install but then can't find after

    @jstancil It would be helpful to know which loader & DSM version you are trying to install. At a guess I would say DSM 6.2 which requires an intel lan card to work. I'd suggest trying jun's 1.02b loader & DSM 6.1 initially.

    migrate from 6.1.7-15284 to 6.2.1

    Some information regarding your hardware might help.

    Migrate from xpenology to a real synology

    Yes you should be able to just put the disks into the DS918+ without loosing any data, however as you've already said having a backup is best practice. It might be worth keeping the N54 as a backup server.

    XPEnology Tool for Windows x64

    @jensmander Can I suggest that W32Diskimager is added back as an additional tool as a lot of people are familiar with it.

    Boot disk (usb) backup?

    Yes, all your data and settings will be retained as the USB is only used to boot. If you want to you can backup your configuration data from control panel\update & restore.

    Boot disk (usb) backup?

    It's just as easy to create a new one from scratch.

    New user with various generic questions.

    Hi, Welcome to the forum. 1) DSM will handle the raid array, it's what it's designed to do. 2) Not as far as I'm aware. 3) Setting the HDD's to spin down after a set time & also schedule power on off when not in use. 4) DSM has S.M.A.R.T. testing built in & testing can be scheduled. I'd suggest having a look at the tutorials & FAQ's then trying to install DSM 6.1 with jun's 1.02b loader & DS3615xs image as this is what most people use & has the widest compatibility..

    Reinstall XPEnology on Netgear RNDU2000

    From a quick google search it looks like the previous owner flashed the internal rom. I'd have a look at the tutorials then try booting DSM 6.1 using jun's 1.02b loader & the DS3615xs pat file as this probably has the best chance of working. If it doesn't you could try DSM 5.2

    change model from 3615xs to ..

    It isn't possible to change the model in that way, a new loader would need to be compiled for the version you want to use.
