Start by reading the tutorial here and when your done and if you still have any questions, repeat once more ;-)

Then let us know if you need some guidance to follow the steps outlined in the tutorial.

@MCFLY78 Did you read the tutorial, twice, already?

 

 

Then you might just boot from you bootable USB I guess?

The "updated tutorial" is the one I was linking to, and it explains, step by. step, how to install.

Since you are not updating anything, but doing a fresh clean install, your "work" starts at step 3

But DO read the complete thing, to get to know the basics "behind the screen".

And pay closely attention to Note 1.

 

Some questions to you:

 

1 - What bootimage did you download, and was it for 3615/3617/918/xxx?

2 - Did you edit the vid/pid/sn/mac before you wrote it to your usb drive?

3 - On what hardware are you trying to install it?

4 - What make/model is the NIC you are using?

5 - Why did you replace the extra ramdisk, and what file did you replace it with?

6 - What .PAT file did you install ?

7 - Did you install the .PAT automaticly or manual?

Hello , thanks for your help

1 - What bootimage did you download, and was it for 3615/3617/918/xxx? : 3615

2 - Did you edit the vid/pid/sn/mac before you wrote it to your usb drive? no because as i understand the edition of vid/pid/ is only for update

3 - On what hardware are you trying to install it? i am trying to install on two machines :

Thincentre M81 Celeron and the other is an Athlon X2

 

4 - What make/model is the NIC you are using? DON T know what is NIC and where to find it on the machine

5 - Why did you replace the extra ramdisk, and what file did you replace it with? i thought i did but i have mounted once again the key and it was not replaced

6 - What .PAT file did you install ? i did not use any

7 - Did you install the .PAT automaticly or manual? i tried to find the machine on the network but no way

 

hope it helps you ....

regards

Arnaud

1 - OK, but what is the name of the file you downloaded, and did you use a link from this forum? (1.0

2 - No, you HAVE to edit, even for fresh/clean install.

3 - The M8i should be ok, but AMD support is limited so your Athlon might be less "lucky", what is the mainboard used for it ?

4 - NIC = Network Interface Card, you find it just where your network cable connects ;-) 

5 - Ok, as you have to find the computer before installing.

6 - Ok, as above.

7 - Have your tried searching this forum, or Google, if your hardware actually is compatible?

 

Try the following:

A - Download the "toolbox".

B - Download Jun's loader v1.02b DS3615xs

C - Download DSM 6.1.7 15284 (Chose .pat file for DS3615xs)

D - Find MAC adress of your NIC, write it down.

E - Using the "toolbox", find the vid/pid of your USB drive.

F - Using the "toolbox", generate a serialnumber.

G - Using the "toolbox", edit your grub.cfg with the above data: MAC, vid, pid, and Sn. before saving the changes to you bootimage.

H - Using the "toolbox", write the edited file to your USB drive.

I - Reboot your "NAS" from your freshly made USB bootdrive.

J - Check your routers DHCP server if your "NAS" is getting an IP adress.

K - Using the "toolbox", locate yoru "NAS" with Synology Assistant.

L - Using the Synology Assistant, connect to your "NAS", then manually install the DSM_DS3615xs_15284.pat downloaded earlier.

M - Reboot and enjoy ?
