  1. I have been able to get my Mac Mini Server 2012 model to boot with Jun's 6.1 3617 loader and it works great. I was able to see the NAS on the network using Synology Assistant and connect just fine. However, I have had no luck getting Jun's 6.2 beta loader to connect to the network. It appears to boot just fine, but I never see it on the network. I tried: Both the 3615 and 3517 loaders Set the PID/VID of the USB Tried 2 different USB drives; all boot, no network Set the mac1 to the actual NIC mac address. I assume the NIC chipset
  2. Hi, I have searched the forum and web for this answer but cannot find it. I am wondering why there are loaders for 3 different models of XPEnology (DS916 vs DS3615 vs DS3617). The only difference I can tell from DS916 from the other two is that DS916 only support 4 drives, whereas the others support 12. But the actual Synology counterparts support expansion units. So when should one choose XPEnology DS916 instead of DS3617 or the DS3615?
  3. Thanks for the link. I did search, but I couldn't find a listing of compatible cards and I didn't wan to risk getting the wrong one. Again, appreciate the help.
  4. Hi, I am trying to load-up XPEnology 6.1 (or 6.0) on an HP DX5150. It is an older machine but has an AMD 64bit CPU and 4GB of RAM. The boot loader actually works, but DSM loader cannot see the internal hard drives. I guess the built-in SATA controller is not compatible. Does anyone have any suggestions on a low cost, low-profile, 4 port, PCIe SATA controller card that is compatible with Jun's loader without having to compile/load additional drivers? I plan to connect it to the 4 bay cage here: https://www.icydock.com/goods.php?id=114
  5. Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to setup a lab/test server to test out new DSM features/packages before we enable/deploy them on our Synology NAS. So DMS 6.0 or 6.1 doesn't' work on 32-bit CPUs? Some of the J-series Synology NAS devices are 32-bit, such as: https://www.synology.com/en-us/products/DS416slim#specs Will they only run older versions of DSM? Thanks again.
  6. Hi folks. I'm brand new to XPEnology and this community. I have an old Dell Optiplex SX280 that I want to install XPEnology on but not sure if it will support it and if so, which image I should use: https://www.cnet.com/products/dell-optiplex-sx280/specs/ I want to use the latest DSM possible. I believe the machine has 2GB of RAM, a Intel Pentium 4 530 / 3 GHz processor and a standard SATA drive. From what I understand in order to install the software, at a high level I have to create a boot USB drive (which never can be removed), then you have t
