    DSM 6.2 Loader

    You need to follow the instructions in this topic, a few of us had the same issue. You can do it, the instructions can be a bit confusing to follow. Just let us know if you get stuck.
  2. Loader version and type: 1.04b DS918+ DSM version in use (including critical update): DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4 Using custom modules/ramdisk? If yes which one?: no Hardware details: Intel i5-4670, Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H, SATA PCIe card 4 ports (chipset Marvell 88SE9235, Model SI-PEX40062) NOTE - I have 8 hard drives, I usually use the Intel SATA ports on the motherboard and if the others are not compatible then I disable them in BIOS/UEFI and use the above PCIe card which is cheap and never had problems with in all my Xpenology builds.

    Ok, so try keep it as close to native as possible. Does it work on Intel 8th Gen CPU's? What SATA chipsets and LAN chipsets are safe?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Hey guys, So what is the deal now? One loader maintained for DS918 with 16 drives? So if I want to use the latest DSM I should make sure I have 4th Generation or newer? I have two systems with 1st Gen i7 and 3rd Gen i5. I will upgrade these. Can I go for a 8th Gen i3/i5/i7? And for motherboard do we just make sure it has Intel SATA, Intel LAN etc? Thanks
  5. Let me know if you have trouble and don't understand the instructions. I was a bit vague, they're personal notes I made for myself.
  6. How to downgrade: Replace zImage, extra.gz and rd.gz (open synology.img -> image.img with 7Zip) with the one from DS3615xs (use the opposite of what you have installed currently) so you will force a reinstall of DSM. You cannot migrate the settings, so you have to do a clean install (keeps your data). Afterwards replace the above files again with your original bootloader, for me its DS3617xs and do a fresh install again. What this means is, if you have 3617, then download the 3615 loader. Extract the files above using 7zip from the 3615 loader, use OSFMount to modify the 3617 with those files (by replacing them) and then make a USB with this modified 3617 loader.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    The above system is now working. Previously on DSM 6.1 my network settings were set to MTU 9k (9000) on a PCIe network adaptor, when I migrated the system it must have been applying these settings to my onboard network card which doesn't support them. After I disabled it the system came up perfectly. Probably not going to happen to anyone else but just something to look out for.

    I tried in BIOS mode and UEFI mode, same results. It worked fine on the DS3617xs and DSM 6.1 Nobody seems to know for sure what the oldest supported version is. Plus, if I can get the initial stage where we migrate the previous install then doesn't that mean it's compatible?

    Had some issues, booted up and I started up the migration using 1.03b and 3617, however after it says Installation Completing it will reboot and I can’t get back into it. I can see it’s boots up and there is HDD activity, I can ping it however I can’t login with SSH or to the web browser. Any ideas? Specs are: Motherboard - H77-D3H-MVP CPU - i5 3450 Loader - 1.03b DS3617xs Baremetal - Yes SATA - Onboard Intel and a Marvell based 4 port SATA card.

    Did you get a chance to try again? Do you have any extra info? Give some more info about your system.

    Successfully upgraded. Motherboard - Z87X-UD5H CPU - i5 4670 Loader - 1.03b DS3617xs Baremetal - Yes SATA - Onboard Intel and a Marvell based 4 port SATA card. Additional Comments - find.synology.com or Synology Assitant couldn't find my NAS, I used a network scanning tool to find the IP address and browse to it manually to do the update. Otherwise all smooth.

    Just want to confirm the upgrade path. My understanding is basically: 1. Shutdown my current DSM 6.1 server 2. Make a fresh USB boot loader with the 1.03b loader 3. Boot up and find the synology server 4. Specify the PAT file 6.2 manually 5. DSM will find my previous 6.1 install and migrate it Does this sound right? I've been using it for about a year now but this is the first time I actually have two change the boot loader. Thanks

    Error 13 means PID and VID are incorrect. When you download the image, you need to edit grub.cfg to have the correct VID and PID values before you make the USB using Rufus. Obtain values as show here http://xpenology.me/how-to-see-the-value-of-my-vid-pid-stick/ Edit them as shown here on Point 5 https://xpenology.club/installmigrate-dsm-5-2-to-6-0-juns-loader/ Good luck, let me know how it goes.
