  1. I was able to get Nanoboot 4493 installed on first try in less than 10 minutes on following hardware: MSI 970A-G43 Motherboard 8 GB (4 GB x 2) DDR3 AMD Phenom II X6 1045T CPU 6 x 2 GB SATA III Hitachi Hard Drives Generic USB Key Installed all 6 drives into 6 SATA ports on motherboard Set BIOS to boot to UEFI USB Key and disabled all other boot items Used cheap nVidia Video card to see screen during first setup (removed card after setup for 100% headless) First time I ran the Nanoboot picked upgrade/install... took under 1 minute Connected with Synology setup assistant and tried to load DSM from 1513 model and it gave errors suggesting I use DS3612xs. Downloaded it and works perfectly. System shows all 8 GB RAM (only 2 cores and Intel i3 processor) but runs screaming fast. Was able to let install auto update DSM without issues. Can not believe how easy and fast and really don't understand all the unnecessary complexity and complaints in the other posts. I fully expected to have to tweak settings and spend time to get things running and was blown away how easy and fast. Ditched my 2nd data drive on my main computer in favor of an iSCSI LUN from the Synology. Installed this to replace aging Windows Home Server and will never look back. Using this new homeade NAS device feels like a real storage array not a glorified Windows PC. Able to SSH almost same as EMC VNX/Celerra. Nanoboot does not seem like a trial at all. I would give it A++ and say it is 100% ready for release. Winger2k
