REPORT: ASROCK C236 WSI working w/ DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02-alpha2 on DSM 6.1.1-15101
MB: ASROCK C236 WSI
CPU: Intel E3-1240L v5 (no iGPU) but DSM recognized as INTEL Xeon D-1527.
Storage controler: Intel C236 w/ 8x SATA3 6Gb/s, support RAID 0,1,5,10
NIC: Intel® i210+Intel® i219
MEM: Kingston DDR4 8G 2133 ECC KVR21E15D8/8 X2
HDD: Seagate ironwolf 4TB ST4000VN008 X5
Installation process is quite simple to follow how-to guidance. Changed & updated grub.conf VID & PID, mac1 & mac2, Sataportmap set to 8. Then burn img to a Sandisk ultra fit 16GB pendisk. Boot with default boot option. Then router showed DS3617xs IP address. Then install DSM as on screen instruction.
Login & configuration and balabala....
1. Can't register Synology account via DSM but can register on synology website with SN which gen by https://xpenology.github.io/serial_generator/serial_generator_new.html 2. NIC seems LAN1 switched as LAN2. maybe grub.conf mac1 & mac2 has issues.
PS: Did tried FreeNAS 11 nightly and want to leverage ZFS power but tried a day then quite. It's too difficult to use. Maybe because i had used DSM for years.
