DSM 6.x installation on Asrock H97M-ITX


Recommended Posts



I am currently trying to install DSM 6.x on my Asrock H97M-ITX motherboard.

Here it is the status.

I already try to install 6.1 and 6.2 with different status.

On 6.1 I succeed to start the installation but after the reboot I could not see my NAS.

On 6.2 I failed to start the installation. I think this is because with my BIOS I need to activate UEFI and it seems to not work on 6.2 boot loader.

I tryied with differente version (3615, 3617, 915) with the same issues.

As far as I do not have serial port on my motherboard, I bought a PCIe Serial card to be have to see the kernel boot but I failed to see it.

I booted a live distrib and I saw that the serial port was on ttyS4 so I modified the grub.cfg on my USB stick but not better.


Could somebody help me to be able to get the boot process on my serial port ?

Thank you in advance

@davrichard when you installed the 6.1, did you manually install the .PAT file, or did you let DSM automagicly download and install?

The auto might have installed the "Latest and Greatest" 6.2.x that might not support your NIC (AR8171).

Hi @bearcat , thank you for your answer.

Yes I have installed manually the .PAT file.
