Is the data important or do you just want to start over? in any case you can try 6.1, you can always grab another USB key, write the IMG again, and try from that. While working on a seperate issue, I build a functional 6.11U4 system quite simply. for the 6.02 guide , but using the 1.02a IMG, the DSM version you need to download was listed in the synology assistant after you boot from the stick. The other key was to fix the PID/VID using the "boot from stick, hit C to launch command prompt, pid command, pid 0x(your 4 digits),vid command, vid 0x(your 4 digits) hit esc, then continue to boot. after that it will install and there was no issue upgrading it to 6.1.1U4. (well I STILL have a problem using 10gigabyte NICs, but so far no issue with 1gigabyte NICs)
System and data are in two separate partition. Starting over will have no effect on data.
Tried several cables directly to my router and cant even see it as an attached device any longer..... wonder if the LAN has died? lights are still flickering away on it
1st option: try accessing the system partition following this guide: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30805 and then copy the content of /lib/modules/update to /lib/modules (if you know the module of your NIC then copying that module only will do)
2nd option: if the above doesn't work and if you don't mind reinstalling all your apps and configuring them again, I would recommend you to wipe the system partition and reinstalling DSM again. I don't know exactly what you did before but doing as I said will certainly be faster than troubleshooting this for days.
When I try and copy the content of /lib/modules/update to /lib/modules I'm getting failures
"Error while copying alx.ko
There was an error copying the file into /media/Ubuntu/1.42.6-5644/lib/modules
Show more details
Error opening file /media/Ubuntu/1.42.6-5644/lib/modules/alx.ko':Permission denied
Any ideas?? Could you tell me which is the system partition to wipe if all else fails?
