  1. Hello, Have you gone through the FAQs, pinned tutorials and made a forum search? DS918+ platform is meant for Haswell CPUs and above. If I am not mistaken you have Sandy Bridge CPUs which are lower therefore you can't use loader 1.04b (DS918+). Try with loader 1.03b (DS3615xs or DS3617xs). I recommend using DS3615xs. Read here. None of the above is needed but wont do any harm. I think you need to flash that card to IT mode. You should read this thread if you want all 8 ports to be SATA. Note that these edits to the synoinfo.conf file do not survive a DSM update and need to be redone when you update DSM.
  2. @jsdoc Removed lengthly off-topic paragraph. Read the READ ME topic at the root of this section.
  3. Hello. Clearly you are new here. I strongly suggest you to read the FAQs first. This is explained. If you wish to see your actual CPU information you will need this tool: Note that this will not survive a DSM update so it will need to be re-applied.
  4. Indeed, I misread. Then the reason might be that DS3617xs is limited to 12 disks. Look at the synoinfo.conf file. If you want to add additional disks you need to edit the file. Several lines need to be edited: maxdisks= esataportcfg= usbportcfg=‬ internalportcfg=‭ Search the forum on how to change those. As a starting point you can read here: Please note that these settings will revert to default if you update DSM.
  5. What does is mean "by switching to the intel" ? You mean you changed motherboards?
  6. Short answer no. That machine is a Lenovo I believe. I didn't look into the specs but most certainly the NIC is not compatible therefore network will not work. You have 2 choices. Stay on DSM6.1 or upgrade the NIC to an intel NIC. Also no need to double post. You other post has been removed.
  7. Not sure. Try removing the RAM and see if it boots normally again. Could be that the ram is defective?
  8. That FAQ already exists but people seems to care little for the FAQs. That is why most of the time I don’t bother answering questions which answers are already in plain sight. In fact I have been trying for a while to implement a way to force new members to read the facts before beeing able to post or view any other thread. FAQs>Hardware FAQ>Faq #8 The faq does not provide brand names or models on purpose because that is a varying information. Also Flyride has published two excellent threads about native compatibility which are pinned. Other than going into people house to build their machines I am not sure what else we can do. [emoji56]
  9. I highly suggest you use DS3615xs instead. DS3617xs is known to have issues.
  10. No need for e1000e because you used a Broadcom NIC which is a vanilla DSM compatible NICs. You probably had one of these: BroadcomNetXtreme II BCM5706/5706S/5708/5708S/5709/5709S/5716/5716S. Actually looking at the specs of the HPE Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331FLR adapter, it uses the Broadcom BCM5719 chipset. Not sure if this is the adaptor you had but seems close enough.

  11. Hello and welcome to the forum. What you say is doable. First though I would strongly suggest you read the FAQs for you to get acquainted with how all this works. You will most certainly get the answers to 90% of the questions you have. However, I will provide some specifics. Yes all good. Yes sounds right. RAID is not a substitute for backups. You need to have a proper backup system in place from the start in case of catastrophic failure. It does happen. Depending what RAID you chose though you might be able to get away with 1 or more drives falling without data loss. Simply replacing the failed drive(s) will work. Yes SDcard is possible. Note that SD cards are not USB devices thus you will need the VID/PID of the reader when configuring the loader. Read the FAQs and tutorials and you will understand what I mean. You can also read this. Being a Network Attached Storage device, it is not meant to be directly managed/accessed physically through a monitor and a keyboard. Although (as I recently learnt) it is possible with some gimmickry (installing a host OS and installing DSM as a VM on the same machine) this is not a good approach for general usage unless you do not wish your NAS being accessible in your local network. Even then there are other ways. The only use of this would be for testing but yet again you can do some testing without doing this. If you wish to go above DSM 6.2 (DSM 6.2.1 / DSM 6.2.2) then you will need to have an intel NIC otherwise your machine will not show on your network. You should ALWAYS read the DSM Updates Reporting section before making any update to your box. Have fun.
  12. Interesting. I tried that but didn't work for me. I might have been doing something wrong then.
  13. As stated in the OP it seems you can. An intel NIC is needed though. Now would I do that? No. I do not recommend using DS3617xs. It has shown countless times to have issues. You can search the forum. I would stick with DS3615xs.
  14. The question(s) in this topic have been answered and/or the topic author has resolved their issue. This topic is now closed. If you have other questions, please open a new topic.
  15. You ought to detail your post if you want some help.
  16. Yes that is possible but technically I think you still need to use a network even if both OSes are installed in the same machine. DSM will not allow access to its GUI other than through a network connection, therefore some sort of router is needed (either virtual or physical). Please correct me if I am wrong.
  17. Deleted hijacking posts. Read the section's description!
  18. Nope you can't. You only have 2 hours to edit the post. That's how the system is set. Also please use the spoiler tag when posting very long logs. Thank you.

    Have you read this in the DSM Update Reporting section?
  20. @Sam Poon Your post has beed deleted. You are new to the forum and thus I would suggest reading before posting. This section is only meant to report update outcomes. Read the READ ME topics at the root of this section.
  21. Hello. I suggest you read the FAQs.
