HP N40L 5th Disk Problem with DSM 6.1.4-15217 Update 1 and modified BIOS


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


Installed the modded BIOS to enable the 5th and 6th disks. I've installed a drive in the DVD bay and connected it to the internal SATA port (disk 6) but am having trouble adding the disk to my volume.


I can see the disk in the Synology Storage Manager, and can add it to the RAID set with the UI, but when I hit "Apply" it gives me the busy wait icon for about 6 secs and then that disappears, and the disk has not been added. Then about 10 seconds later I get an error in the notifications window saying "System failed to expand [Volume 1] with disk [6]". 


Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong and any steps I can take to remedy the situation?
