  1. Awesome, thank you for the replies. I'll give these a try.
  2. Just wanted to check and see if anyone has ideas out there as to why I'm having this difficulty. Thanks!
  3. Sorry I should have included that. I'm following this Tutorial: Install/Migrate DSM 5.2 to 6.1.x (Jun's loader) so it is the 1.02b and DSM 6.1.4
  4. Brand new here and to the world of XPEnology. Very excited about the possibilities, I have a number of Synology NAS at home and work including one of the newer 8 bay models that I love. I'm looking to build one of these for home, and then potentially build a backup for our big 60TB Synology at the office. I'm running into some trouble following the guide though and wondered if anyone could help. Here is my hardware GA-Z68XP-UD3 (Realtek RTL8111E chip and i5 3.3 GHz 16GB Ram GT640 just to have a monitor during setup **Board has Realtek RTL8111E chip for LAN and here is the info it provides for the storage chip Chipset: 2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (SATA3_0~SATA3_1) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices 4 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2_2~SATA2_5) supporting up to 4 SATA 3Gb/s devices * The SATA2_5 connector will become unavailable when the mSATA connector is installed with a solid state drive. Support for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10 * When a RAID set is built across the SATA 6Gb/s and SATA 3Gb/s channels, the system performance of the RAID set may vary depending on the devices being connected. 1 x Marvell 88SE9172 chip: 2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3_6, GSATA3_7) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices Support for SATA RAID 0 and RAID 1 I was able to follow the instructions pretty well, had to install Ubuntu briefly to get the machine's mac address. Found the VID and PID of two different USB sticks, tried with both of them. I'm using the pat file for the DS3615sx. For install purposes I've just been using 1 single HDD just because I want to see how the install process goes and do some testing. For home I will probably go with 5 drives, at work 8 drives. I'm able to boot into the installer, and then use find.synology.com to locate the NAS. The first time I did this I rushed through the install process and missed the Install Manually option, I just hit install. When the machine rebooted after install I couldn't find it. Next I did it again, with a new USB and a new HDD, this time I selected install manually and selected the pat file I downloaded. Again, no luck finding it with find.synology.com. I am able to boot the USB and select reinstall, then I can find the NAS and reintall. I also tried to this process with the custom extra.lzma ramdisk as I figured my LAN chip was a problem. Also didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've got another old mobo sitting around I'm going to try next.
