    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    You link me a video, which I've already watched, and I tell you I've done EXACTLY what that video shows to do. And you say I've not told you what I've done? I bet even if I post a copy of the file, you'd say the same thing! In fact let me do that! I dont get it, you make a helpful thread like this, as this is the next thing I was thinking of trying Yet you didnt read that the changes I made were a step by step change from that video...... synoinfo.conf

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    Wow you're not very helpful are you. As said in that video, the guy uses root in WinSCP Something you cannot do now unless you set a password first! So the fact that I know that and you dont shows I watched no only that video, but have looked at other posts and forums to see what to do. It's not my communication, it's your understanding and attitude. So apart from saying I followed that video step by step once I set root password Only info I can give is system settings HP G1610T Gen8 microserver DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.iso DSM_DS3615xs_15284.pat I tried their 45 drive change 36 drives 24 drives 22 drives The changes to file are saved, but reboot always goes to having to reinstall DSM again, which stays at 12 drives.

    That's the video I followed. Which itself is wrong as it assumes you have root account access. Which you dont until you ssh in to create a password! And you need to change TWO files, one in etc and other in etc/defaults But even then, still not working for me.

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    There's another post about editing the maxdisks on the 1.03b loader Can the same be done for the 1.02 loader? i've tried the online tutorials about using root and editing synoinfo but my server restarts asking to reinstall DSM
  5. I updated my DSM a while back and updated my usb boot drive for xpenology. This for some reason stopped my Gen8 server from booting from usb, didnt matter which port I used. I think the reason is due to the fact I was not on win10 when I first created the usb When you install Win10 you will be installing it with UEFI So when you create your bootable usb on Win10, I guess it does it so its compatible, so the drive is formatted for GPT drive I think since the Gen 8 is using an old BIOS, it will only boot under a usb drive formatted for MBR So to get around this you will need to use rufus to create the bootable usb When you load the iso file for xpenology, you'll see the Partition Scheme is GPT, and greyed out, so you cant change it. Two ways to change it, Check the List USB drives, this may then flip it to MBR Download win10 installation iso from Microsoft Select this win10 iso as if you are going to make a bootable win10 usb installation drive Then you will be able to change GPT to MBR Then change iso to xpenology Then create bootable usb as normal Win32DiskImager does not give you the option to select GPT or MBR partition schemes. So my guess it uses the system default. So if you have win10, it is most likely GPT Hence the USB is GPT, and the server will not boot from it. See this image to see check Should work on other servers which have similar issues It's just the BIOS is too old for GPT I guess.
  6. erm.....hmmm, oh well it's encrypted on this end now cant change it Oh missed that last reply of yours. good to know I guess if I need it again.
  7. OMG after so many years I think I figured out, at least hopefully figured out what was causing my system to crash and require reinstallations! With that vid/pid not existing for miscrosd cards. I decided to keep it in the usb adaptor. Just in case I had to revert, I used another microsd card, and kept original boot loader card to side. So installed it on second microsd and kept it in adaptor and stuck that in my box Did a reinstall and as usual works fine. My NAS is encrypted and so I decided to use the old microsd as the drive with the encryption key on it and keep that in the microsd slot inside the gen 8. Yes i know that kindda defeats the point, but it's just to keep my data encrypted when transfering/sharing online. All seemed fine until lately I have had to restart my server twice as the encrypted folder would not mount the first time After all this time could it be that the original microsd card i was using is faulty?!!! Guess time will tell, see if I need to do another reinstall in 6 months or not
  8. But I dont want to use the card adaptor, I have a HP Gen8 microserver, which has a built-in microsd slot. But yeah atm I am using the adaptor and it's values, though prefer not to. but if sd cards dont have those values, I guess I can ignore that part of the setup then. The PCI network card does appear in the BIOS, each port appears separately. The lights on the ports also turn on, Orange to show it's a 1000mb connection, and the green power LED. But it's stuck on solid, not flashing so that shows no communication is going on even though it's connected and powered..... Wondering if I need the MAC addresses of the pci ports? I read on another thread to change it to MAC1=eth0, but that doesnt work either. Neither does keeping the macs on the onboard ports. Not sure how to disable only the onboard NIC, I looked around and foudn a couple of sections and disabled them, but not sure if that disabled the pci card as well.... Nor is there an option to select the PCI card
  9. Hmm, so until I can use a microsd card, I just used a usb stick to test out my system. Another problem, also I read you need an intel NIC, so I bought a NC360T for my gen8 Installed it start the server, it wont show up at all! The system loads to the normal xpenology screen asking you to use But I cant find it.. Do I need to install updated drivers for the NC360T? I installed teh latest BIOS as well, VERSION: SP99427 2019.04.04A
  10. Well as usual my server crashed again. Gonna update it to the new jun loader and got to the part where I need the VID and PID of the microsd card I will be using. So stick it in an adaptor, into my pc, goto properties etc, and get the values there. Except these values didnt match what I had last time. So after some googling I find that I am getting the VID & PID of the card reader! NOT the microsd card itself Tried googling it but I cannot find a way to find the values for a microsd card! Anyone have any ideas?
  11. Dont worry about your data Migration means you keep all your old settings, at least most of them Reinstall means you will have to set up all your configurations which you changed from default ones. If it has downloaded an update, you may need to revert back. there should be a tutorial somewhere on doing that. Just hope yours hasnt ended up like mine where I have to reinstall at least twice a year, sometimes more. But no idea why my system crashes.
  12. Wow system crashed again! This time I got an error before it messed up. As said I shutdown my system each night. As I shut it down I got an error saying it could not shut down as it was trying to restore a shared folder. I click OK, the page refreshed and "Sorry, the page you are looking for is not found."
  13. That's just an example image showing the error I get. Not a screenshot of mine Obviously that person is trying to install myphp on their server. The error is generic and not specific to a given program. As you can see no details are given except that the page cannot be found Hence why no ones been able to assist in this issue. The only fix is a reinstallation of the diskstation operating system.
  14. I have already tried a full clean installation on a second Gen8 server with 4 new HDDs I then transferred the data across, not a migration. And yes it still causes this crash/corruption or whatever makes that "cannot find page" error. And as you said I ahve not had any responses to it, though if you look around, other people have had the same issue, although just a small number. And I would like something else to use, cos would you like to reinstall your server twice a year or more? Of course I would love to continue using xpenology, but as said I am getting a bit tired of having to do these reinstalls. But yeah maybe I should test the hardware, maybe the ram module has degraded and is causing problems.
