XPENOLOGY Works great! How about Open QNAP next?


Recommended Posts

I know this is slightly off topic, but after playing around with XPENOLOGY and HP N40L for a while, I keep on thinking if we can do the same thing with QNAP OS, i.e., installing QNAP OS on other hardwares....If so, that would be rather fun, imagine a PC running dual QNAP OS and SYNOLOGY OS, and no one has to choose between these two any more.


I did some research, and found QNAP OS can be directly flashed upon Cisco NSS 322, 324, 326 series (discontinued products after Cisco left NAS business). Also, someone on QNAP forum claims that the QNAP OS for TS-659 would work on the following motherboards: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P, and Gigabyte EP43-UD3L, and supermicro X7SPA-H, without having to work on the kernel mod.


I guess the theory is the same as XPENOLOGY, so long as a mb has the same SATA controller and LAN chip (must be dual lan physically), the OS would recognize any box as the real thing.


Considering the surpermicro board is only 180 bucks on amazon, I may well take it for a spin...still need to buy a mini itx box though...will see.


Still, just a stranger thought after a few long nights tweaking with XPENOLOGY.
