    Progress of 6.2 loader

    hmm first release of DS918 - was that 1.03a (not 1.03a2)? Any chance you still have a copy of it? i've got the exact same motherboard and 1.03a2 918+ is painfully slow, running it on DSM 6.2 using loader v1.03b (3615) is super quick with not one issue.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    i've never used EFI so didn't know it was a problem nice that Jun knows about it though. i'm passing through a controller. it detected my first disk as disk 31 when the baremetal option was selected. when switching back to ESX mode it showed my first disk as disk 7. so not sure whats happening there 🤨

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I think gigabyte call it "CSM" so check your BIOS and enable that - should allow you to boot in BIOS (non-EFI) mode.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Now that you're running the new boot loader and BIOS mode - have you made sure to select ESX mode from Juns boot menu? I had the same thing when upgrading my ESX install. The first option was selected by default (bare metal) which left me without seeing all my drives but i could see the 50MB virtual boot device. After making sure ESX was selected the 50MB disappeared and all my drives were detected again.

    unfortuntaley the 918+ loader doesn't work very well with the asrock 3455 motherboards. I've got two (J3455M / J3455B-ITX) and both of them have the same symptoms when using the 1.03b loader: - slow to boot - slow to copy files over the network - slow to copy files to/from USB to/from array Using any of the 1.02 loaders (3615/3617/916) and DSM 6.1 works perfectly. Likewise - the 3615 and 3617 1.03b loaders also work fine with DSM6.2. I'm really hoping this is something Jun is working on, if not - his 361x loaders work flawlessly

    Looks like the amazing Jun has released v1.3b in both 3615 and 3617 flavors! https://mega.nz/#F!BtFQ2DgC!JgomNP3X8V9EuwxL4TXbng!Yot3HB4S

    Progress of 6.2 loader

    In Jun's whatsnew.txt file he says: Can this have an affect on the overall speed of the system? Just looking up a few posts, @hoverfly mentions that his clock is running slowly and got me wondering... How does the 918+ keep its time? just NTP?

    j3455 usb 3.0 very slow

    Awesome! What version of the bios is your board running? I've tried the sport mode on mine, still no luck :(

    j3455 usb 3.0 very slow

    i tried every other bios option and had no luck. using the 916+ 1.02b bootloader is crazy fast but again, only working with 6.1.7. no gpu acceleration though
  12. thanks for the info. turns out my (and others') issue is with DSM 6.2 and the new loader. Using the old loader with this hardware enables full speed network / disk writing / usb3.

    j3455 usb 3.0 very slow

    The network performance on 1.02b / 6.1.7 was a little underwhelming - only peaking at 80MB/s write. Decided to disable C-States in the BIOS and got this (1.02b / 6.1.7): Upgraded to 1.03a / 6.2 and got this: USB performance matches the network performance - full speed on 6.1.7: Much slower in 6.2: I might give up on the idea of upgrading to 6.2 and stick with my existing setup.

    not sure - ill have to test it out. will give it a shot tonight
  15. The board i have uses the same CPU as the 918+ and Intel's specs page says it only has a max of 2 SATA ports. Looking at other branded boards, they add sata ports by utilising third party AHCI controllers just like the PCIe version I've put in. Does your driver pack have a newer driver for the RTL8111GR NIC? Or is it the same as Juns?
