  1. Hi! I made a little tool which can help you to get your XPEnology up & running without installing any software. It contains (as portable versions): - Nirsoft's USB device view (helps to identify the VID & PID of your USB boot media) - V2.76 - XPEnology Serial Generator for DS3615XS, DS3617XS and DS916+ (a converted version of the HTML site) - Win32 DiskImager (to write your modified synoboot.img to your USB boot media) - V1.0 (only available in V1.4.1) - OSFMount x64 (to mount the synoboot.img and modifiy it) - V1.5 - Notepad++ (best editor for changing values inside grub.cfg) - V7.5.3 - Synology Assistant (useful tool from Synology to find your XPEnology and install DSM) - V6.2-23733 - TFTP/DHCP portable (a small TFTP, DHCP and Syslog server by Ph. Jounin) - V4.6.2 - MiniTool Partition Wizard 10 (helps assigning already formatted/written USB devices to modify existing grub.cfg) - V10.3 - SoftPerfect Network Scanner - V6.2.1 - USB Image Tool - V1.75 - New: Rufus - V3.3 In the section "Downloads" all links open corresponding websites to download the files. For beginners I added a small HowTo for bare-metal installation. Update New link for download: https://mega.nz/#F!BtViHIJA!uNXJtEtXIWR0LNYUEpBuiA The download link/folder also contains @IG-88's extra.lzma (V0.6) for the DS918+. You'll have to run it "As Administrator" because some of these tools (like Win32 DiskImager) need to be executed with higher rights. It's possible that the SmartScreen filter will give you a warning, because the EXE isn't signed. Bug reports and comments are welcome Cheers Current version: V1.4.2 (2018-11-19)
  2. Da die Frage nach dem (nachträglichen) Ändern eines bestehenden Bootsticks häufiger aufkommt, anbei eine kleine Anleitung zum Einbinden der Partitionen Eures Bootsticks (enthält u.a. die grub.cfg sowie die extra.lzma). Die grub.cfg befindet sich auf der 1. Partition (15MB), die extra.lzma auf der 2. Partition (30MB). 1.) MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition (portable) herunterladen: https://www.partitionwizard.com/download/v12-portable/pw12-free-64bit.zip 2.) Zip entpacken und aus dem Verzeichnis die "partitionwizard.exe" starten („Als Administrator ausführen“). 3.) Den Stick einstecken. Partition Wizard erkennt das neue Laufwerk automatisch. Klickt nun in der Übersicht Eurer Laufwerke die erste Partition des Sticks (Bild1) mit der rechten Mousetaste an und wählt "Change Letter" (Bild 2). 4.) Wählt bei "New Drive Letter:" den gewünschten Buchstaben aus (Bild 3), bestätigen mit OK. 5.) Jetzt unten links im Programmfenster auf "Apply" klicken (Bild 4). Bestätigt den Hinweis (Bild 5) mit "Yes". Wenn es keine Probleme gegeben hat, den nachfolgenden Dialog mit „OK“ bestätigen (Bild 6). 6.) Nun ist die Partition ganz normal im Explorer bzw. Dateimanager Eurer Wahl verfügbar. Im Ordner "grub" befindet sich die "grub.cfg", welche mit Notepad oder (besser) Notepad++ bearbeitet werden kann (neue VID/PID bspw., Serial, MAC, usw.). 7.) Zum "unmounten" wieder in Partition Wizard wechseln, die erste Partition des Sticks wieder rechtsklicken -> "Change Letter" -> "New Drive Letter: none" (Bild 7) -> "OK" -> unten links auf "Apply" und den Hinweis wieder mit "Yes" bestätigen. Abschließend den Stick „sicher entfernen“.
  3. I've created an Ansible Playbook for creating an Xpenology USB. https://github.com/stevenhrabok/ansible-xpenology-usb Currently it's only written for Mac OSX. In future I may add the ability to create USB Devices in Linux if there is interest in using the tool. I wrote this to help automate the workflow and make the USB drive creation process more consistent. It also helps avoid forgetting a steps in the process. Features: Prompts for information serial number - changed in grub.cfg nic 1 mac address - changed in grub.cfg bootloader/synoboot filename - used to write synoboot.img to usb extra drivers filename (optional) - used to replace extra.lzma files in partition 2 of usb synology pat filename - used to replace rd.gz and zImage on partition 2 of usb Discovery of plugged in USB devices scans for all plugged in usb drives prompt for selection of usb drive to use collects pid and vid of usb - changed in grub.cfg formats usb drive Extract files extract bootloader/synoboot from zip extract extra drivers from zip (when provided) extract synology pat with 7zip Writes synoboot.img to USB Mounts USB partitions locally Changes to grub.cfg and file imports Prompt to make additional manual changes User can modify partition 1 and partition 2 files modify grub.cfg for custom settings (sataportmap, timeout, etc) import other files (custom drivers, etc) User can verify changes made Unmount of USB partitions Eject of USB drive Cleanup of working directory (extracted files and folders from playbook) I found there was very few guides related to OSX so hopefully this is helpful to any of the OSX users out there.
