  1. The Package Center installed Video Station is giving operation failed errors, reinstall below version works like a charm! https://usdl.synology.com/download/Package/spk/VideoStation/2.4.4-1583/VideoStation-x86_64-2.4.4-1583.spk
  2. Just a quick guide from my installation of DSM 6.2.1 Update4, before I forget it. The process was much easier than I expected, thanks to all the contributions and sharing in this forum. *** This guide required MODDED BIOS and a HP NC360T NIC *** Hardware Setup Flash kamzata's modded bios, use attached file to burn an USB drive with the modded bios, boot the server from it and let it completes the bios flashing Install the HP NC360T NIC, I bought a used one in Taobao for 14 bucks Load "Optimal Defaults" from BIOS, then In Advance page, disable C1E Support In Chipset page, disable the onboard NIC Atheros AR8132M NIC DSM Installation Download Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs (Synoboot_3615.zip | 17.3 MB | MD5 = e145097bbff03c767cc59b00e60c4ded) Download PAT file DS31615xs DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update4 (263MB) Prepare the USB boot drive, I followed Polanskiman's tutorial to write the generated SN, USB vid and pid in to grub.cfg boot image then burned it to my USB drive (below steps also come from Polanskiman's tutorial, really recommended to read it through) Boot the USB drive, select the 1st option (or just let it timeout in a sec), wait for 10mins then run Synology Assistant, your Microserver should be found as a "Not Installed" DSM Right click on the found DSM and select install, browse to the download PAT file above.

  3. Don't think modded bios is a must as the official having options to disable C1E and internal NIC. However, modded bios gives 6 SATA ports, 3GBps SATA and hot plugging. Also a DSM 6.2 compatible PCIe NIC is obviously required.

  5. Followed the guide and got DSM installed as a Vbox 6.0 guest on Ubuntu 18.04 on a HP N54L hardware. Moreover, successfully added 3 raw disks to DSM and set up those as a RAID5 volume. Reference to below pages: Added raw disk access https://www.serverwatch.com/server-tutorials/using-a-physical-hard-drive-with-a-virtualbox-vm.html Raw disks auto detected as eSATA shared drives, solution to force them as internal https://hedichaibi.com/fix-xpenology-problems-viewing-internal-hard-drives-as-esata-hard-drives/
  6. I would suggest you 1st get DSM installed and running fine in your RAID disk. Then you put an additonal disk / SSD to the box and install Win7. If you can select the boot order in BIOS and get both running fine then it's almost done, just it would be prefect to add a boot menu in Win7 side to select which OS you want to boot from.
