    XPEnology gnoBoot

    Is there anyway possible for you to also get the Temperature and Smart Status working for ESXi once you get the shutdown problem fixed, this would ultimately make my ESXi setup complete for my N54L

    [SOLVED] Install on vmware ESXI

    At what point are you getting the error? the first boot, or after trying to install a PAT file? If it's the later, then it's because the install process of the PAT is writing over parts of you boot drive and messing it up. Some people get around this by making a copy of the boot drive before you try to install a PAT, then replace the messed up one by the PAT install with the unbroken copy you made. If it's the initial boot I dunno what to say. I been playing with gnoboot's boot images and they work pretty nice, at least for testing purposes. I haven't testing any of the other boot images on here, but his doesn't get grub errors after installing. It happens after i install the PAT file. Every time I replace the VMDK with the backup it boots up again but when i run Synology Assistant it shows Configuration lost and puts me put me back to where i started with the PAT. Is there i special way to do this in ESXi because in Virtualbox i don't have these issues

    [SOLVED] Install on vmware ESXI

    The idiots guide in this thread works fine, I've followed it for my first esxi VM's. The easiest to way to convert images is to use StarWind Software V2V Image Converter. It's free, you can find mirrors from download sites so you don't have to register at starwind to get it. The alternative to that is using a live linux cd in a VM, with a virtual IDE HD attached to it. Transfer the IMG to the running linux VM and then dd if=name_of_image.img of=/dev/sda (or whatever drive letter the virtual IDE gets assigned. power down linux and move the virtual IDE drive to your synology VM to boot off of. The idiots guide listed is for already created VMDK. I've tried the starwind software to create the VMDK and still end up with the same error, even after following the guide. Is there is special procedure to create the VMDK in the Starwind software?

    Can somebody also create an idiots guide for converting img to vmdk. I've been pulling my hair out trying to get this accomplish for hours and can't seem to get by that stupid grub error 22. Nobody seems to have a clear cut guide on how to do it in ESXi but I'm able to get it accomplish with VirtualBox and get by the "error 22" by just replacing the mounted VDMK with a backup version but that doesn't seem to work well in ESXi

    Can anybody provide me 4.2-3211 (Trantor's beta 1.2a) for download? Trying to get a version that had SMART showing on the DSM monitor, but according to Trantor it's not working on 4.3-3810. Can anybody confirm if it's showing on Trantor's beta 1.2a?
