First 2 things for you to find out as a start:

 

1 - What networkcard (or chip) is inside your computer?

2 - Is that card/chip compatible with the version of DSM you try to innstall?

If its compatible, your DHCP server should have been getting a request..

Have you tried a different cable or port?

 

Next Q:

What bootloader have you been trying?

i tried it all and the same issue except that 5.2 loader gave me another error...

 

This kernel requires an x89-64 cpu, but only dete4cted am i686 CPU.

There has been posted a guide to be used with x86 (32bit) it might be worth a look :-)

 

btw:

As you get an IP from your server, using Windows on the client, confirmes that your HW is working,

but it still needs to be compatible with the bootloader/DSM used, and they are Linux based.
