  1. I can't make any changes to the AHCI in the BIOS on this HP OEM laptop. There are no options to change bar boot order, date time etc. I was making sure that I had matching Bootloader and DSM but I couldn't even get the laptop to boot up, No text on screen, nothing. I thought XPEnoboot 5.2 would be less advanced than Jun's loader.
  2. Thanks for your reply! I didn't know about the drivers. I'm using an old laptop before I move to NAS hardware I'm getting. Brand HP Item model number DV6-6053ea Processor Brand Intel Processor Type Core i7 Processor Speed 2 GHz Processor Count 4 RAM 8 GB Computer Memory Type DDR3 SDRAM Hard Drive 100GB Hard Disk Technology HDD Additional Drives DVD+-RW Graphics Card Description AMD Radeon HD 6490M Network Card Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Wireless Type 802.11bgn, Bluetooth Hardware Platform PC Operating System Windows 10 Premium 64bit
  3. Hi, I need some help ! I've been trying tutorials on the forum here but I cannot get my Xpenology upgraded from DSM 5.2-5967 to DSM 6.X. The only thing I can do is get a better version of DSM 5 and I can do that via control Panel on the diskStation. The bootloader I am using seems to be a discontinued one - the XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1. Its great for getting DSM 5 installed on a Hard drive with little effort. There seems to be the new bootloader - Jun's loader - but it doesn't boot up on my machine while the older boot loader does. Is there an XPEnoboot for DSM 6? I've tried installing DSM 6.X via control panel (and XPEnoboot 5 ). it actually installs but then get an Execution error. I've all the usual like correct PID/VID/Mac Address/Serial Number correct and started in debug mode but get stuck. Synology Assistant either says suitable for migration or recoverable but I have to wipe the HD and start again. Why does the loaders not boot ? Is there not something like XPEnoboot for DSM 6? What are your suggestions
  4. Yes DS Assistant still finds the device. I'm trying to upgrade to DSM 6.X via the control panel but its stuck on 22% Preparing. Only option is to refresh the window. I will check the FAQ but I think it might be a hardware issue.
  5. I've tried the above tutorial but I have been unable to upgrade from DSM 5.2-5967 to 6.1.x using either : DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.img or DS3617xs_DSM6.1_JunsMod_V1.02b_MBR_Genesys.img The 2 above bootloaders simply won't boot. I'm using a DV6 6053ea laptop (Intel, 4+years old), There is no option to disable C1E in the BIOS. I have entered VID, PID, Mac address and tried a few different serial numbers - Nothing comes up on the screen. Only XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5967.1.img will boot. What do you think the problem is ?
  6. Hi sbv3000, Thanks for replying, your advice worked! I think the problem was that I had two different versions mixed up. I went back to version 5 and tried skipping formatting the hard drive bit but same result as before, the timer ran out and nothing happened. I think it needs a fresh clean HD. I took the HD into Windows as an external HD and done a quick format via disk manager and it worked. Many thanks ! !
  7. Hi, I've got a similar problem to the question marked as Xpenology installation loop but I did't get mine resolved. Essentially my installation ends after the DSM_DS3615xs_8451.pat file installs and the timer runs out. I'm left with DiskStation login: on the Xpenology machine and the timer simply goes to Zero. I'm trying out XPEnology on an old HP Pavilion DV6 with a 2.5" hard drive first before I buy new hardware. I'm keeping things simple and just concentrating on getting it installed (i.e not doing any MAC address changes or registering details on synology - just VID and PID) The steps I took so far are : I copied the XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5967.1.img file over to the USB stick but couldn't get access to the VID & PID until I tried an install (solid .img file). I was getting errors (corrupted file) when I tried to install the .pat but could access syslinux.cfg and change the two values to VID_0781 and PID_5572: UI menu.c32 PROMPT 0 TIMEOUT 50 DEFAULT xpenology MENU TITLE XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1 LABEL xpenology MENU LABEL XPEnology DSM 5.2-5967 KERNEL /zImage APPEND root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0781 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 LABEL debug MENU LABEL XPEnology DSM 5.2-5967 Debug KERNEL /zImage APPEND root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0781 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 debug=1 LABEL install MENU LABEL XPEnology DSM 5.2-5967 Install/Upgrade KERNEL /zImage APPEND root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0781 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 upgrade=5.2-5967 The pat file I am using is the following: DSM_DS3615xs_8451.pat I got corrupt messages earlier and other messages saying that the version had to be over a certain edition. I ended up downloading the .pat file for Synology. I don't know if they match with the boot loader XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5967.1.img Where do you think I am going wrong ? Once the .pat file installed my DV6 reboots about twice choosing the first option in the blue boot up menu by default. The Web Assistant sayings FAILED TO CONNECT after the timer runs out and to search manually. Once i do that I find it and I get Status recoverable. It just repeats the entire process all over again. - It starts the count down timer, restarts the DV6 - installs files and sits at the DiskStation Login .
  8. many thanks for your response sbv3000 ! I'm going to go with the Synology DS3615xs since it has the support base and is most capable I can always update my processor later but I won't miss anything. The standard boot images seem to get everything up and running - I will just try that first along with a .pat file. Then I will look about making changes to the MAC address or Serial Number later. I seen the big thread on DSM6.0 and 6.1 by @Polanskiman but I will go through it for sure. I might try an old HD on my old laptop (after checking if its supported) for the process. Just one other thing -- can you access the xpenology from the Internet - outside the LAN ? Or do you need a Synology account to do that ? Many thanks!
  9. Hi, Can you help - I was initially going to buy a Synlogy but because of the price I didn’t. On Youtube I but came across some helpful XPEnology and I am now going to build my own NAS but I have a few questions about the process. I've been reading a bit but I'm still not 100%. 1)Does it matter which version of XPEnology you use to put onto the usb stick for the target machine? I guess with the bigger models they have all the features/apps compared to the cheaper models but is there a recommended version? I was going to use DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.iso 2) I got the VID and PID of my usb stick - do I have to add in a MAC address using the Excel spreadsheet? If it is not used are some functions restricted ? The spreadsheet only goes up to DS3615xs and not DS3617? 3) Is there a 1-2-3 step installation guide to follow here? 4) Can I try the entire process out on a laptop with a spare HD- i.e. get XPEnology working - then remove the HD and put my laptop back to normal by just swapping back in the original HD ? Or the process make changes to BIOS/UEFI/laptop Here is my future target NAS box : - Intel - Pentium G4400 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor Asus - H110M-A/M.2 Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Patriot - Viper Elite 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory Western Digital - Red 2TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive Western Digital - Red 2TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive Fractal Design - Core 1100 MicroATX Mini Tower Case Many thanks, Aindriu
