  1. critical updates fail, reinstall?

    Unfortunately not. The serial I was using was from a serial generator recommended in main the DSM 5.0 -> DSM 6.1 tutorial on these forums. I switched it back to the serial Jun originally had in there but it didn't make a difference. I ended up doing a full reinstall but kept all the data following some advice i stumbled upon in another thread. As i'm using ESX, this is what I did: - removed the SATA controller from the VM - added a new virtual HDD - booted up Juns loaded - installed a fresh copy of 6.1.4 to the one and only virtual HDD - re-added in my SATA controller (which all my data drives are connected to) - once the fresh copy of 6.1.4 loaded, it detected my 2 arrays and synology asked me to repair the system partitions on those drives (which it did). - shutdown the VM, removed the virtual HDD. - done! I simply installed Docker and noticed all 9 docker containers started up with no issues at all. f**king amazing!
  2. Hi guys, Currently running Juns latest loader on ESXi with 6.1.3 update 6. For whatever reason, all critical updates since this version all fail to install - says something about the file being corrupt. Also tried downloading the full 6.1.4 221MB PAT and applying that but it also fails (error 221?). Just wondering what the procedure is to re-install DSM from scratch but keep just the data on my SHR array? Cheers!
  3. DSM 6.x.x Loader (with MBR partition Table)

    Thanks @Genesys, i dd'd the first partition from your 1.01 loader img to a new active partition on the hdd but it fails to even start the loader. I'm wondering if there's some data in the first 2048 sectors of the disk (as the first partition doesn't start until sector 2048).
  4. DSM 6.x.x Loader (with MBR partition Table)

    Thanks man this is awesome. I have a question though - is there any chance to get what you've done there into 1 single MBR partition? I've managed to get DSM 5.2 and the older xpenology loader running on a single hard drive without any usb on a kimsufi dedicated server. The loader is basically sitting on a small active partition sitting between the OS and data partitions. It works great and was really hoping to run DSM6 but just need the loader to all be in 1 partition. Any chance that's an easy thing to do? Thanks again for all your hard work!
  5. Still No Proper 6.0?

    yeah why can't you make a "proper" loader? we're all waiting. the sense of entitlement from some people is baffling. Jun's loader is great and hasn't missed a beat - learn to show some respect to those who are doing this work for nothing.
