Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

hi folks,

 

i wanted to buy this mainboard :

 

https://www.alternate.de/html/product/1438885?gclid=CjwKCAjw7cDaBRBtEiwAsxprXXaqhjnerwSoG8NoiSCDAuHjdu-CXuC-Scas5ETYMenDSnrNe4x3QBoCi54QAvD_BwE

ASRock J5005-ITX  

THE NETWORK CARD IS  Realtek RTL8111H

STORAGE CONTROLLER :

2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors, support NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug
- 2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s Connectors by ASMedia ASM1061, support NCQ, AHCI and Hot Plug

8 GIG RAM

1 SSD 128 as system drive

1 6tb wd red as nas drive (maybe later raid setup)

 

i wanted to use the 918+ pat file.

 

could anyone explain me, how to install the dsm setup onto the ssd without booting from a usb stick ?

or if this is not supported, WHY ? because of UEFI things ? or else..

 

how to install the software correctly ?

 

i understood the following :

 

i need a pat file.  i need a usb stick to boot from all the time ?

 

1000 thanks to anyone who could describe me in short words, how to install dsm on that machine ?

 

regards

danni

J4105 user here. In order to boot, you have to have the usb stick, no way to avoid that as far as I know. I failed to load 918+ for the hardware (keep crashing), but 3617xs does work.

You can install the dsm on the ssd, that's how I did, but you still need the usb stick for booting.

you tried to install the 918 + PATTERN ONTO SSD, that failed ?

but then you reached it to install a 3617xs PAT file ?

(can you explan me how you did it ?)

 

1.) format USB stick

2.) ? copy juns bootloader to usb stick ?

3.) copy the PAT file to usb stick

4.) change BIOS boot order permanently to USB stick (i could use an USB SSD instead?)

thanks again, my brain just wants to figure out the theoretically part

Just follow the tutorial and use the 3617xs-related files/settings. Done.
