Dell OptiPlex 7010 USFF - Problems with 6.2

Recommended Posts

I was given a Dell OptiPlex 7010 USFF. (i3-3220 (Ivy Bridge), 4GB memory, Intel NIC)

It runs baremetal 3617xs with 6.1.4 perfectly. I'm trying to install 6.2, but I can't get it working.

 

The user flyride shared a spreadsheet with configurations that should work. I use the 1.03b bootloader, and disabled the uefi option, so I only boot in legacy mode.

The loader boots, and Synology Assistant can find the NAS, but I get the classic "Failed to install the file. The file is probably corrupted. (13)" error.

 

With the ds3615xs loader I have tried the following combinations of SN and MAC:

  • SN and MAC provided with the loader
  • Generated SN and generated MAC
  • SN and MAC from a real Synology device.
  • SN from a real Synology device, and the OptiPlex's own MAC.

I have tried with both 6.2.23739 and 6.2.23824.

Every time I get that 13-error.

 

Any tips on how to fix this?

 

I am currently considering buying new hardware for a build, but I want to get some experience with XPEnology first. If I can't get this working I might end up buying another Synology device, although I would prefer some more powerful hardware.

I used the 1.03b loader and I installed DSM 6.2-23739 update 2 my dell is Optiplex 790

 

And try a different usb stick

I am not sure to be honest. I can try and download another one.

I will try and see if I can find another brand USB stick. I have five identical ones that I switch between.

I have the same machine.

three things.

1) make sure your USB stick's VID and PID is correct

2) make sure your boot device is set to AHCI

3) use UEFI on 1.04, BIOS on 1.03a/b

I looks like my BIOS settings was correct all along. I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version, and tried another USB stick.

Now it works!

I installed 6.2.23739 and afterwards upgraded to 6.2.1.23824 without any problems.
