  1. UEFI changed to legacy and now it takes all variants (918, 3615 and 3617) and I updated to 24922 using the 3617. Thank you. It has taken three days to copy movies over, so far. 30tb takes a while
  2. I didn't know that about transcoding. Thank you. I would have been aggravated if I tried it and it was slow. I am going to end up using the 918+ DSM now due to the information update. I am getting older and don't want to play to get it to work. I just want it to work. I may play around with 1.03b in legacy mode to see if it takes the install. I am using a second Dell T30 with Hackintosh as my main rig. Currently using it for Plex with a E3 1245 V5. 918+ with 1.04b seems to work with every machine I have tried it on.
  3. Thread back from the dead. For reference I just picked up an ebay Dell T30 with the same specs. It will take 1.04b boot loader with the 918+ 6.2 - 24922. The 3617 works with 1.02b and 6.1.7-15284 update 3. I tried the newer DSM's fro the 3615 and 3617 with no luck. Sorry to raise from the dead, but we are in quarantine.
  4. No quick connect as it is NOT a real Synology.
  5. I ended up restoring the WD software. The biggest problem I faced was temperatures. I didn't experience an major issues software wise.
  6. I have the same issue using a 918+ Jun's 1.04b on a Supermicro 1150 board. It won't boot unless you boot it with the amount of memory that the OS was installed with. I tried going from 16GB to 32GB (for no reason) and it won't boot. Removed the ram and it booted without issue. You aren't the only one, but only workaround it is install the DSM with the configuration that won't change.
  7. you delete the partitions that have the Synology on it. Reboot and it starts up to a install WD screen. Download the software from WD. It is pretty easy. We are in lockdown. If you want realtime help on it, today is your day.
  8. you don't need to inject anything. Allow the factory bios settings. Install a vanilla Jun 1.04b 918+. The only failures I had installing were USB stick issues.
  9. I am using 918+ Jun 1.04b using the newest DSM. Use the Rear USB ports. Try a different USB stick. I bought 1gb USB 2.0 sticks for $2 each and they work better than the new one I have. I am bored, so If you want it tested in almost realtime. Chime in. We are all Quarantined.
  10. Yes. HP Microserver Gen 10 takes the 918+ using 1.04b Install the newest DSM and Viola. Boot to USB. Migrate. And done.
  11. I am using the 918+ version and have had zero issues. I bought one to try out using a four port lan via the 3617xs dsm anyway. two onboard and two from niccard.
  12. I just ordered a Nc360T on eBay. I'll test mine when I get it Wednesday and update
  13. chime in and update.
  14. Yes, used the wd-to-dsm.bin. It recognizes correctly the amount of ram in it. On the site it says that the EX2 Ultra are the same as the MyCloud something. It worked perfectly, just smaller and not as fast as a larger unit. Was it worth it? Yes. Easy and easily reversible.
  15. I downloaded both wdtodsm and the 8451.bin. First time I did it, I ssh'd into it and deleted the WD OS partition and flashed the new .bin. That failed. I reinstalled the WD software. Then did a simple manual update to the wd to dsm .bin file. Reboot with the HD's out. goto Id the unit and the IP. Put the HDD's in and it will recognize drives and install the DSM. It went smooth. I wouldn't try Plex. Copying from USB and copying over the internet simultaneously had the CPU at 90%. Normal usage is around 10%. The Ram amount is fine. I did it for fun, but it actually works well. I am going to shelve it as I didn't really need it. I already tortured it- crashed and rebuilt Raid 1, unplugged during transfers, pulled one drive and rebuild , pulling drive 1- then adding 2tb to the remaining drive- reinstating drive one and rebuild. It didn't fail.
