  1. Well I will answer my own question and was a little surprised. I just made a new flash drive with the same procedure as the original one and too my surprise I didn't have to do anything. It booted right up and I am back in operation. :)
  2. I have a server running Xpenolgy 7 working great but what do I have to do to change the flash drive. The one in the server has a broken case and a little flakey. Hopefully don't have to re-do the whole server. I tried to a disk copy but that did no good. Thanks in advance.
  3. - Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3-25426 (JUN's loader 1.03b - Loader version and model: RedPill 0.4.6 DS3622xs v7.1.0-42218 - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - HP MediaSmart Server EX485 with updated process E8200 - Additional comments: I ran in to one problem. After install I can't access the server as long as there is a hard drive in the bottom slot. With only the 3 drives it works fine.

Didn't think it was possible until I saw fannoute post.
  5. And my final update 4th server went off without a hitch. Less than an hour. Yay. Now what can I do today.
  6. It's funny. I have 4 Xpenology servers. The first conversion went off without a hitch. The second one which I have been talking about was such a struggle. Maybe I was tired as came back and got it done. This morning I did my 3rd conversion and had it done in no time. Maybe I was just tired but 3 server was so simple. Dumb women brain fart on the second one maybe.
  7. Yes I did use redpill and I eventually got it working. To be honest not sure what my problem was. Stepped away for a few hours and then came back and got it working. I have set up 2 others without problems so still a little confused on what was wrong. Thanks so much for your comments and suggestions.

  9. I really wish I would have stayed with some version of 6. I don't have the expertise that lots of these people have on this site. Right now I just walked away from it for now as I needed a break and have spent countless hours on it. One thing if or when I get this fixed I am going to buy a large external drive or setup another server to backup my movies. It's taken years to accumulate them. Thanks for the advise. Will post later on my success when I have the energy to start again.
  10. My main Xpenology server containing 2000 movies is fubared. For some reason the flash drive has failed. I have another flash drive and I installed redpill on it thinking I could recover but it fails every time I boot. I had a spare hard drive thinking I could get it going with that and then replace my 4 drives with the movies on. Install when fine but then when I replaced with the 4 drives and boot it says I need to migrate which I expected and says it has to recover and it goes to about 5 percent and then reboots and back again saying I need to recover it. Any advice greatly appreciated.
  11. Never mind. I just jumped in and swapped drives and migrated and seems to be ok. Only comment I can say is no improvements that I can see but I am a rookie to this still and I am guessing some of you geeks know a lot of great things with 7
  12. I have been testing redpill on my HP N54L for a couple of weeks or so and it's been working great with no problems. I have another pc based server emulating DS918xs+. I now want to move those drives to my new server emulating DS3622xs+ and not exactly sure of the procedure. I have read a lot but still a little confused since there are emulating different models. Thanks in advance.
  13. Thanks so much. Everything went fine. That's my movie server with over 1600 movies on it so for now I am just testing but not wanting to migrate all my movies as it took many years to accomplish. Just using a spare drive for testing purposes. Thanks again for all your help.
  14. Thanks so much I can handle that.
  15. Physical Yes for a N54L 4 4tb hard drives.
