  1. hello i run XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2 on a HP microserver N54L with 3 drives. First problem is that i can't found xpenology with Synology Assistance. Then every time i start up xpenology, it looses the settings for Windows File Service & Mac File Service and i re-enable them every time.. i get the "-" which means "error", instead of the checked mark. I'm thinking to update the xpenoboot with the following steps which is found here http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=42163#p42163 (thanks goes to andywhit) i also found that i get a FAILED when xpenoboot boots.. and
  2. thanks again! from what i understand.. first i need to update the XPEnology boot and then the DSM.. cheers
  3. thanks! but i already have DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2... or the above steps for the update 2, goes to update the XPEnoboot? right now i boot from XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2-d6e5157.
  4. hello i have an HP n54l with XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2 with DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2.. every time i boot, it gets me to the DSM UPDATE screen because there is the new update (5.2-5592 Update 3 and now 5.2-5592 Update 4) although i have disable the task manager to search for updates.. which is the right way to update from DSM 5.2-5565 Update 2 to 5.2-5592 Update 4? through Control panel > Update & restore > DSM update? Manual DSM update? Update now button? some other method? also every time i boot the server, the Windows File Service & Mac File Service are disabled and i
  5. yes i know that. so if i shut down my n54l and unplug the usb stick, plug it to my pc and copy/paste all the contents to another usb stick would i have a back up of the original bootloader usb stick? thanks
  6. so we can make another boot usb anytime with any version of nanoboot? or we need the exact same version, that we had, when we first installed xpenology? thanks
  7. hello! i run xpenology on my HP n54l. i would like to know what will happen if the boot usb stick dies... how we create an exact copy of the boot usb stick? am i worrying too much thanks
  8. The new seagate 8TB drives (archive series) is it supported with the new 5.1 XPEnology; They aren't in the compatibility list of hard drives on the synology site. what about hp microserver n54L with these SEAGATE 8tb drives and XPEnology? Will it work? Thanks
  9. Thanks! Intel based motherboards (the asus Maximus costs as one hp n54l) are expensive and if I go these route, I prefer to buy a 4bay synology from the j series, or a hp n54l, cause I don't need the extra power.. I would like to built something that doesn't cost more than an hp microserver n54l..
  10. Thanks!!! Do you know that will work with XPEnology? What about usb3 and wake on LAN? Does it have an embedded graphic card or I must buy a CPU with embedded gpu? Sorry for the lame questions.
  11. micriserver motherboards rocks, for a big nas, but I have a small case (node 304) and I search for something with 6-8 Sata below 80€/90$.
  12. i didn't find any of the above motherboards available. the fractal design node 304 http://www.fractal-design.com/home/prod ... -304-black supports mini-ITX (170 x 170 mm) and the bigger mini-DTX (203 x 170 mm or 8 x 6,7 inches) could you please recommend me some motherboards that supports: 1) xpenology usb3 and wake on Lan (optional) 2) with 6 or more SATA and 1 eSATA (optional) 3) mini-ITX or mini-DTX (203 x 170 mm or 8 x 6,7 inches) 4) doesn't cost a fortune.. supports cheap cpu and not an i3, i5 etc thanks
  13. i have a fractal design node 304 http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/node-series/node-304-black that supports mini-ITX (170 x 170 mm) and the bigger mini-DTX (203 x 170 mm or 8 x 6,7 inches) could you please recommend me some motherboards that supports 1) xpenology usb3 and wake on Lan (optional) 2) with 6 or more SATA and 1 eSATA (optional) 3) mini-ITX or mini-DTX (203 x 170 mm or 8 x 6,7 inches) 4) doesn't cost a fortune.. supports cheap cpu and not an i3, i5 etc thanks
  14. Yes, is possible. I got a HP Gen 8 microserver upgraded with a XEON processor and 16 Gb ram ... And have a hyper V environment with DSM 5.0 running. Is it possible to have six drives on a Gen8 case like n54l on the ODD space? does have 6 Sata connection?
  15. anyone try to install xpenology (any version) on a Hp microserver gen8? What is the max drives that an Hp microserver gen8 supports, without buying an extra raid controller? from the back side i didn't notice any eSATA. only USB ports.. http://h22150.www2.hp.com/BC051935-71D8-4B89-9E1C-E5E2B3D2C63A/index.html
  16. Your built is wonderful! Is it also silent?
  17. Hello I would like to built a nas with xpenology on a fractal design node 304 and i would like to know, if there is a trouble free and not pricey motherboard, that support 6 Sata, or more sata. Node 304 can hold 6x 3,5'' hard drives but i don't know if i can mount more drives with a nexus double twin, or any other way. Do i also need to check if there is any compatibility issues for the cpu, power supply (psu) and memory that i should use? or any cpu, psu and memory is compatible with xpenology? thanks in advance!
  18. please name a few.. thanks also i just confirm this.. so its better to stick with the following guide that uses a USB stick and the image from the xpenology.nl site INSTALL SYNOLOGY DSM 5.0 (4493) (ESXI / NON ESXI) http://cyanlabs.net/Thread-Install-Synology-DSM-5-0-4493-ESXi-Non-ESXI
  19. INSTALLING SYNOLOGY DSM WITHOUT USB OR ESXI http://cyanlabs.net/Thread-Installing-Synology-DSM-without-USB-or-ESXi
  20. ok heres a guide how to install DSM without USB stick, and its more like the original synology nas. and it makes the whole process of installing XPEnology, extremely easy. just wondering..on an official synology nas, the DSM installs/clones its OS on all the drives that we have on the nas, so if a particular drive fails the DSM will boot from the other disks.. correct me if i m wrong. with the above guide of installation (which is only install the DSM os on one drive and thus having only one copy of DSM), if that particular drive (OS DSM) dies, we can't access the DSM. anot
  21. at my hp n54l the reset occurs only when you schedule start up and not shut down. so you may like to test scheduling a start up as well, just to be sure.
  22. Please inform us if everything work smooth with 6 TB drives. Please mention what kind of raid did you use. Thanks in advance
  23. yes i am aware of the post. i just wonder if there is a fix? if anyone knows something please post here. thanks
  24. The BIOS reset every time that I enable the start up from "power schedule". Strangely the shut down action, don't cause Bios reset, only the start up. i run XPEnology nanoboot DSM 5.0-4493 update 2 on a HP microserver n54L with 6 drives. I dont plan to use "power schedule" but i would like to know if there is a fix? also if these BIOS reset problem could triggered by another action/feature/service? i.e. using WOL.. For flashing the bios I have the following guide http://terfmop.co.uk/blog/2013/07/31/hp ... sata-port/
