First of all, I really appreciate the community effort on such great project and especially the dedicated devs.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
That being said, I was able to get thru the initial installation process (bare metal) :
-setup of the USB key was done for the VID/PID
-also generated a serial and MAC pair at quickconnector.orgfree.com
-the device is found with find.synology.com and the synology assistant
-note: I had to choose Force Install otherwise an error did not allow to proceed
-everything seemed fine until restart, I've made sure to select the first line in the loader because of previous Force Install selection.
Then after restart, nothing happens. Even find.synology.com or the assistant does not detect the device anymore. I have to wipe the drive with ubuntu live before starting again.
Some things to try:
-maybe i should try the SataPortMap option to specify drive count (for me would be "=1", a single drive for testing now...) instead of the Force Install ?
-the board is a AsRock H97M-ITX/ac ..wonder if it's an hardware issue. I'll check if I can find another board.
..is there something obvious that I've missed here?
