  1. I will be happy to share my backup of my DS1511+ until somebody here can explain/help me to clean out my Serial number and mac adress from my backup. So far I was not able to get this out..
  2. this would be an alternative indeed, but only the Synology DX510 and DX513 expension units are not supported by the DS3615 loader. at least I have tested it, and does not work :S.. So for that reason it's not an option for me :S
  3. Ok i see, thx for this info ! I suppose a 1511+ bootloader will also not work then on a 1010+ Unit ?? Or perhaps this might work, since they are very similar hardware wise..
  4. Funny you ask, I have also tried this with my DS1512+ and DS1511+. It did not worked OOB, since it looked to me like the DS1512+ is running a UEFI bios, and the bootloader used on the 1512+ is UEFI only I think, while the 1511+ and 1010+ are all legacy bios based. Perhaps with modding the 1512+ bootloader somehow, this could perhaps be made possible..
  5. p.s For me it was easy to create a acronis backup image, I have a spare DS1511+ laying arround atm, and can put in a Synology usb flash drive, use a keyboard mouse and monitor.. But these cards are using a regular kind of mini usb plug, there are adapters for this I found in the past. you should google it, there are other solutions for this..
  6. ì think the answer could be here in this russian topic. I tried it in the past for my DS1511+ backup to share with another user here, but never got it too work.. Perhaps you can try it, and share your results here.. ?
  7. hi al, I don't speak russian ,sorry about this. But I wanted to add some info in this topic. Some people contacted me about a corrupted or bricket 1511+ flash drive. I made some well known good and working back-ups of mine. I have tried edditing the mac adres and serial numers using this hex editor methode above, but I think i've done something wrong since my own original s/n keeps returing back.. Maybe these instructions can be posted in english again.. ? Google translate makes a little mess on this one..
  8. hi, i had the same question sometime ago, and there are usb sticks from a-data that can be modified to Synology's PID VID F400 valleus. I have tested this aswell, and can confirm it works as a replacement of the original internal synology usb flash drive. If you have more questions you can ask me.. take a look at this topic, more details are explaned here :
  9. @HellG , Its only possible to succesfully boot your clone with a USB flash drive with the Synology PID/VID valeus on it. You need to modify your usb drive, in order to make this possible. But I always reccomend making a back-up of your original USB flash module, and putting it a side, so no harm can be done and bricking becomes impossible. But indeed extracting the kernel and initial ramdisk could, be worth trying ! I have another DS1512+ and want to try the it on my DS1511+.. How is your testing going so far.. ? I'm pretty sure Xpenology bootloader will btw run just fine btw on your DS710+ Since it works fine on my DS1511+ Best regards, Floris
  10. Which model is this, DS411+ ??
  11. p.s Another way of a more clean approach of running newer DSM versions on your DS710+ would be to clone a DS712+ or DS713+ flash module to a USB Stick, with the correct VID/PID values. This way you are not running Xpenology, but original firmware on a higher model number... You can try this of course, but it can be very hard I guess to find back-ups of the DS712+ or DS713+ flash module.. I'm currently in the progress of testing this with my DS1511+ One of these these IG-88 has send me over a modded flash drive, which has the same PID/VID as the original Synology flash module...
  12. Hi HellG, Xpenology should run fine on your DS710+ , which gives a lot more life to your diskstation ! I really recommend making a back-up of your original Synology USB flash module, and taking it out of the diskstation. This way you can never damage it, so the diskstation will be bricked, keep in mind some users on the web repported that they have accidentally erased or damaged their original flash module. If it's damaged (formated or ereased) your diskstation can't never boot again into the original firmware.. So making a good back-up, and putting the flash module out of the motherboard, and put it safe away is reccommended ! I have made a sector by sector back-up of the original flash module.. As far as booting, your diskstation has a VGA port, which gives you the option to boot and see the bios screen, and select the a Xpenology usb stick for example too boot from. You can also hook-up a usb keyboard, should be no problem.. I'm also pretty sure you can just migrage your disks to Xpenology, should't be a problem.. Make a back-up of course, and configuration back-up before you start is reccomended.. Please let us know if Xpenology also works on your DS710+ And feel free to ask questions...
  13. @wool I'm searching for a compatible USb Stick, is the A-DATA C802 still available to buy ? I can't find this usb flash drive anymore in stores... Maybay there is a good other flash drive that would work ?? And using HWUpg tool, saving the configration will back-up everything for emergency ? What is the best way to back-up the current configuration... ? My DS1511+ and DS1512+ both use VID/PID F400.. How does it actually work ? Is it just as simple as changing the Vendor name VID PID etc, and click on start ? How does this changing process works.. ?
  14. @IG-88 Thx for your message, yes indeed I have tried different USB ports, but no good result.. Anyone else got a fix for me ??
  15. @IG-88 Thx Yes, I have tried with that .Pat file, aswell as let DSM download the latest version trough the installation wizard. Both ended with same error. @Polanskiman Thx, Yes I have tried another USB Stick, a Kingston this time. But got same error. (13) files are damaged. And yes I have used Win32DiskImager.. I have changed the PID/VID values in the Grub config file, This USB stick has the following PID/VID values, acording to usbflashdrive info program : VID: 0951 PID: 1665 So I have changed the following in the grub.cfg file : set vid=0x0951 set pid=0x1665 Have I done something wrong here ? How can this problem be fixed, So I can install DSM successfully.. Hope someone can help me out here, thanks in advance,
