  1. But seriously, thank you. No sarcasm intended or implied here. I'd have no idea it would be called that. This should make life a lot easier.
  2. Thanks! Who'd know such things for power control would be called that, eh? Vmtools... sounds just like acpi or power or shut down when host tells you to..
  3. Hi folks, I finally managed to get DSM running! My server cannot be on 24/7, and it would be inconvenient to have to log into multiple web interfaces just to shut down the box. Is there any way to gracefully shutdown my DSM VM from ESXi? Google doesn't seem to return much, if at all. Nor does the search function on the forums. Thanks!
  4. Reading another tutorial (jumped ship again to ESXi), it says to wait before trying to connect. I've been doing it as soon as the VM boots and giving up after a minute or so. Is that where I am going wrong? How long should I give DHCP to do it's thing?
  5. Tried Unraid, no difference, even with a 10GB SATA disk attached to the VM. This is getting peculiar. No instance of KVM seems to be working for me.
  6. Fast forward a day or so, I hove jumped ship to Proxmox/PVE. I just had a thought, do I need to have a drive attached to the VM for the initial setup? I ask as I am going to passthrough a HBA to the VM, I booted it first as as sanity check, hoping to get some form of failure message about missing disks, before continuing to add the HBA.
  7. Just the one box that I can use for this purpose, a Dell T110II, with a BCM 5722 Gigabit NIC (from lspci)
  8. I'm going to try different hypervisors, thanks for your time and effort here @gadreel, much appreciated
  9. No such luck. It's not a firewall issue as I can RDP into my Windows 10 VM on the same br0 bridge. Truly stumped. MAC is the same, without the colons as the VM itself.
  10. I am indeed seeing this screen. I ask as I wasn't sure if partitions for hard disks and image files are handled differently, even though it boots. I'll try with USB. Definitely using the correct MAC, DHCP on my Pihole isn't picking it up/giving an IP using the e1000 interface, and virtio was the same. I'll double check the MAC is correct
  11. Just tried booting it baremetal, giving it the MAC address of the NIC instead of the KVM one. No difference. tried both find.synology.com and the desktop util.
  12. How do I do this with a virtual disk? I've just been trying to boot the image file from the zip file, Do I need to edit that image file with these details? I've tried this with the following, 1.04b synoboot-ds918.zip DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.img synoboot_3615.zip
  13. I'll go through this again, I think I know where I have gone wrong. This tutorial seems a lot clearer
  14. No difference, could you point me to the loader you know works in any KVM environment please?
