  1. I am not sure if this is true. I had the following experience with NICs. I used to have this board This board has 2 Intel NICs. One with I219V chipset and a second with I211AT chipset. The I219V does not work because the firmware/revision its newish... old revisions/firmware of this chipset do work with XPEnology after digging through the forum. On the other hand the I211AT which is 3 years older than the I219V worked out of the box. As for the I350 chipset, this is the one I use for my XPEnology (http
  2. I think for DSM it does not work like that... The DSM comes with specific NIC drivers compatibility. It does not get updated by Synology to support new Realtek/Intel NIC drivers. As Flyride said you can either buy a cheap/old Intel PCI express network card (any old chipset in my opinion it should be fine) or wait for IG-88 to compile new NIC drivers.
  3. You do not necessarily need a monitor. If you do plug in your monitor though you will see the following... If this is what you see then you need to download Synology Assistant to search for your NAS to install DSM.
  4. Something is off on that conversation. I do not know if I am misreading anything but on the DSM Update Report thread users with baremetal also reported that it does not work...
  5. I am not trying to be rude also but this question was answered so many times already in different posts. There is no road map and this forum does not have a "development" team to work on loaders but very experienced members for troubleshooting. Is there a future? No one knows if this is the end of XPEnology or not. This is up to Jun or any other person with coding skills... As @flyride said on another post with similar question. If he was Jun, he would not spend his time creating a new boot loader just to support this last update. DSM 6 is at the end and the
  6. If you tried to update to DSM 6.2.4-25554 or 6.2.4-25556 read this post.
  7. Well, regarding the AMD part at the moment what AMD offers is much better than Intel and specifically for 2 machines that will be online 24/7 power consumption is very important. Intel's 11th generation CPU (Core i9 11900K) can reach almost 300W which is a lot when AMD with more cores will use half of that. 3800X is 105W, 3700X and below they are 65W if that matters for you. As for the motherboard I do not know if you can find an AMD ITX that supports 2 NVMe Gen 4 and ECC Memory. I am quoting something that I remember on an article.. As for Portainer and Open Media V
  8. If you decide to go with BareMetal DSM read carefully what @IG-88 is saying because not all hardware work out of the box... For example new Ethernet chips are not compatible at all or other hardware might require extra effort from your end to make them work. What I said about Ryzen etc... all that applies if you follow the virtualisation road. As IG-88 said Ryzen CPUs like 3XXX or 5XXX do not have integrated GPU therefore if in the future you are considering to install Plex and you need hardware transcoding this can be a lot of hassle to setup on DSM. As IG-88 mentioned all comes d
  9. I am not that techy to answer all your questions but all I can say is that if you run it as a VM you might lose like 5~10% performance. If you ask other people around here might say VM/Baremetal they have the same performance or you wont notice any difference. I do not want to mess with your plan but with 1000euros you might be able to get better hardware if you decide to go with Virtualisation. For example an AMD 3700X 65W (8 cores/16 threads) in EU will cost around 300euros, a micro ATX board with more PCIE slots gives you more flexibility to add an LSI SAS to add additional driv
  10. As IG-88 said it will be rather better using virtualization. For example I am using Unraid in which you can create VMs and install Docker images if you mainly use your server for productivity. If you like you can setup XPEnology as VM on Unraid if you want to use DSM's docker... Using virtualisation I believe you are more flexible and you are not bound to all those limitations of the XPEnology...
  11. You do not have to create a secondary SATA HDD (unless you want to use Vdisks). As you said you can pass-though your drives from Unraid.
  12. It does not matter which hypervisor you use. (ESXI, Proxmox. Virualbox or Unraid). I think most users use ESXI and you can find a lot of guides in the forum. I personally use Unraid and any VMs I want to setup I do that on Unraid instead on DSM's VMM...
  13. Because I run XPEnology through Unraid as a VM, I find Unraid's docker GUI hard to use therefore most of my software development docker containers like Redis, MySQL, PostgresSQL are installed through DSM's Docker.
