  1. Using putty I am able to telnet to the diskstation and I am prompted for a username and password. Anyone know what the default is for telnet?
  2. I have checked and re-checked, used a different USB key and changed the PID / VID based on what that reported and it still hits 56% and then bombs out.
  3. I am still plagued with the issue of hitting 56% and then the install bombing out with the error message of: Failed to Install DSM. Failed to install the file. The file is probably corrupted. I have tried a different USB key and changed over the PID and VID accordingly to see if that made a difference but no joy. Does it make a difference if I choose UEFI boot or Legacy Boot within the BIOS? Are there any other specific BIOS settings that could be causing the continual failure and could be worth changing? When I now try the in
  4. I have made progress in being able to get past the SATA disk error so thanks to those prior forum members who have helped so far. I now get stuck at the 55 / 56% mark as others have when trying to install the pat file onto a new baremetal install (Dell Optiplex 9020 i5 4570 installing DS918+ 42214.pat) I recall seeing something about this on prior pages but can anyone point me in the right direction to try not to read 45 pages of history? A search on 55% / 56% didn't throw anything up for me. Thanks
  5. Do you have the link for the .pat file that you used for the fresh install?
  6. That line in my grub.cfg file is as follows: linux /zImage netif_num=1 earlycon=uart8250,io,0x3f8,115200n8 syno_hdd_powerup_seq=1 syno_hdd_detect=0 elevator=elevator root=/dev/md0 loglevel=15 log_buf_len=32M mac1=123456789012 vid=0x0781 pid=0x5572 console=ttyS0,115200n8 sn=xxxxxxxxxxxxx earlyprintk syno_port_thaw=1 HddHotplug=0 withefi syno_hw_version=DS918+ vender_format_version=2 Did you add the DiskIdxMap= SataPortMap= SasIdxMap= values to the end of that line? Also, how did you derive what the SataPortMap value needed to be? Cheers for the h
  7. My spare baremetal PC (Optiplex 9020 SFF) starts the boot from USB and gets stuck at the Booting Kernel message. I can then find the device from my laptop by either using or the IP address. The issue I have from there is that I get the error message that others appear to have had. We've detected an error on the hard drives (3,4,5,6) and the SATA ports have also been disabled. I have tried this using both UEFI and Legacy boot from within the BIOS and get the same issue. Does anyone have any tips to get past this point?
  8. Can you clarify the following please when mounting this img using osfmount........ Is it only the first partition that contains the appropriate grub.cfg file that needs to be adjusted to match PID / VID / SN / MAC and that the location for the grub file is \boot\grub? Or is there another file located elsewhere that I need to enter this detail into? Cheers
  9. Can I ask a quick q on this please. What OS were you using to craft the image in the first place and get your loader operating successfully? I have a spare Optiplex 9020 that I am thinking to re-purpose for this instead of using my windows based surface. It would be convenient to re-purpose as the Optiplex has the same hardware in it that my actual Prod Xpenology NAS is running as I secured 2 of them when work was relocating. I would be planning to use it as a dual purpose test bed. Jun's loader worked with no issues on that hardware and the OS comes up as a 918+. From
  10. Does that mean you are running Plex Server on the Shield and Xpenology is just serving the storage side of things?
  11. Hi all I am looking to replace my N54L with a newer, more powerful unit. I don't have new drives to put in so I will be moving the 3 existing units into the new system. Is there a specific process to do this or is it as simple as copying Jun's loader from my current setup onto a spare USB stick, moving the HDD's into the new system and then booting the new hardware? Thanks
