  1. Hi, Sorry hearing you have bricked your 1010 - welcome to the club! I was able to recover the internal NVRAM USB as above, sounding like you have recovered yours maybe? My best guess, is Synology code the VID/PID 0400/0400 into DSM. I could get the new/external USB stick to boot DSM only after carrying out a low-level format of the USB stick and setting PID/VID. You will likely be able to boot Linux (or Windows?!) from USB without reprogramming. I started with loading up DSM6.3 1511 on my 1010. DSM showed me an update was available. I downloaded 6.4 and updated manually, I have still to t
  2. Hello Alma, Thanks! Took a lot of figuring out. I will try giving you some ideas, will hopefully help, I cannot remember exactly the steps I went through to get a working NAS, sorry. Please note, I may be giving wrong advice and/or wrong information in places, be careful and test as you go!! If anything goes wrong or you brick your 1010, I regret I will not be held responsible or liable in any way. DSM... I'm running Synology DSM6.4 for the DS1511+ on DS1010+ hardware. I got it to run xpenology too. Internal/External USB... You will almost certainly need a monit
  3. Have successfully built and am running latest DSM6.2.4 on my 1010 set up as a 1511. Can confirm you need a usb stick with PID/VID both set to F400 else the DSM writing settings procedure will fail. Can reprogram the internal usb if you like too. Just need to create a custom made 1511 bootloader with your MAC addresses and 1010 serial number and write to external/internal usb. Have written a rather lengthy post, here...
  4. Interesting exercise going back to a 1511. Commenting out the hw_model in grub appears to be key in getting syno_hw_version=DS1511+ to work and thence the 1010 hardware to load up DSM 6.2.3 for a 1511. Successfully booted with my reconfigured usb stick too. That's about it, hope my observations prove helpful to others.
  5. Gone the other way - booting from my 3617 usb stick (1511 & 3617 plugged in) and loaded up 3617 25426. Want to check volume utilisation with SSD cache, was 80% plus on 1511 without SSD read/write cache. Update - Gets stuck on Recover. Reboots & comes back to recover. Oh well.... Nice try. Update 2 - Out with the 3617 usb, booting from the 1511 usb, it's booted into 3617 yet boot thinks it's a 1511??? "Time for bed", said Zeberde!!!
  6. SSD cache - I see the 1511 does not allow use of SSDs for read or read/write cache for volumes on physical disk as the 3617 does. Unsure how relevant this is given the testing I carried out during data load when I was unable to see any measurable difference in load speed and network traffic when loading small or large files with and without cache. I noted however, the cache usage growing and Storage Manager showing flashing squares within the cache. DSM warned me when shutting down, to disable the cache or suffer loss of data. Maybe it would have sorted itself given time, seems odd having to m
  7. MIGRATING DS3617 TO DS1515 Good news! I used a 'new disk' in above 1511 build. I was worried I'd lose my data when refitting the drives and SSD cache from my Xpenology 3617 build. However, Assistant reported my 'moving disks from a 3617 to 1511' and has allowed me to migrate. Essentially, I have installed DSM_1511+_25426.pat, again having booted Synology_2 from my internal usb. All data and the majority of configurations retained.
  8. SUCCESS - DS1511+ DSM6.2.3 RUNNING ON DS1010+ HARDWARE I have reconfigured a new ADATA C906 USB stick as follows, lifted from ChipGenius... Description: [E:][F:]USB Mass Storage Device(Synology Diskstation) Device Type: Mass Storage Device Protocal Version: USB 2.00 Current Speed: High Speed Max Current: 200mA USB Device ID: VID = F400 PID = F400 Serial Number: a7100100000000 Device Vendor: Synology Device Name: Diskstation Device Revision: 0100 Manufacturer: Synology Product Model: Diskstation Product Revision: PMAP Controller V
  9. Have to enable SMB1 in DSM, then can map a networked drive in Windows. Still unable to connect directly from EaseUS, no worries, just go via the mapped drive. Spoke too soon! Can copy from internal PC drive to windows share on DSM, EaseUS cannot connect via mapped drive. Asks for User/Passwork, which it reports as invalid. Another time....
  10. Just had the exact same problem, unable to mount a share on DSM6.2.3 from Windows (and EaseUS backup on Windows). Enabling SMB1 on DSM fixed my connection issue. Still unable to connect from EaseUS to NAS, but can via a mapped drive in Windows.
  11. I've read the 1511+ has a slightly faster processor and the network adaptor address is different, else the 1010 and 1511 were said to be identical. Likely as not there will be a rom or something on the main board which configures the box as a 1010, but them why the usb/pid/vid setup and configuration files thereon with model etc within? Who knows? Likely you're advice is sound, better to start with the 3617 version and look to get the Synology hardware functions working, although a simple resistor will set the fan speed and who needs fairy lights? Further progress can wait for now.
  12. Dog has changed a bit Goal is to get the latest DSM 6.2 update running on the 1010 hardware, plus the satisfaction of getting it working. Delighted I've managed to recover the internal usb, thought it totally screwed, next challenge is persuading the 1010 to think it's a 1511. Checked through all the boot image configuration in the 1st partition, everything looks to be configured for a 1511. The function GetModel in synobios looks as if it's reading parameter gszSynoHWVersion, as best I can tell. I cannot work out what's in gsz..., if anything. Final attempt this even
  13. IT WORKS!! I've still to investigate & understand what's going on as my 1010 thinks it is a 1010 despite my loading up the 1511 boot image and confirming beforehand the boot set up is configured for a 1511. Perhaps the disk I've used has remnants from my messing about earlier, probably best to start with a clean and partitioned disk. First things first, however. It has booted successfully from the now clearly fixed and working internal USB plugged into a rear usb socket, and has successfully loaded and booted DSM 5.2 as a 1010+. And we have all leds working correctl
  14. A HUGE THANK YOU to those contributing who have helped enormously in my making huge progress. I have built the NAS using Xpenology, it is working perfectly on DSM V6.2.3 except for the led functions. Good news! Unfortunately however, while trying to reload the internal USB device I screwed it totally by disconnecting while it was programming. Windows could not see it, neither could Mac or Linux. Referring back to this post... ...and specifically this photo... ...I have now SUCCEEDED in getting my Synology USB stick up and running again, thanks to this.
  15. Hi, I screwed my DS1010+ boot - okay, I know...!! Be great eventually to get DSM 6 up on the 1010, let's get to 5.2 for now. Have got to know the DSM internals well, ie. partitions on the internal USB, Grub options, & which files to modify in the the ramdisk image (rd.gz extracted from the pat file). 1st partition boots to ramdisk for loading DSM from Synology Assistant, 2nd boots from the newly created hard disk partitions in the 1010. Synology Assistant insists I go with pat file 'synology_x86_1010+1042.pat'. Outline procedure... Do image copy of
