That's all the GRUB menu will say.  Which loader?  Which DSM and version?

Hello flyride,

thanks for you reply.


1) I have tested the loader v1.04b (just to get the last updated)

I have chosen DS918+ PAT but I could not find serial number to insert in grub.cfg


2) I have tested with loader V1.02b

So I have chosen the DS916+ , the serial is generated and reported in the grub.cfg file (+ the 3 MAC @)

The screen is better now displaying:

Decompressing Linux ... Parsing ELF ... Done

Booting the kernel.


I supervise my DHCP server box, but I could not see any new client

The LED of the RJ45 netmork iis on (Server + Siwtch/router)


Possible problem: The 2 Broadcom Nextreme are not recognized


May be I check for à free slot to insert another NIC ?


Thanks for help

Your hardware offers some limitations you should be aware of:

  • The CPU is too old to use loader 1.04b/DS918
  • Your onboard Broadcom NIC won't work with loader 1.03b/DS3615, you will need to disable in BIOS and add an Intel NIC serviced by e1000e driver

You have two options:

  1. Use loader 1.02b and DS3615 DSM 6.1.7 and your Broadcom should be directly supported.  You cannot upgrade beyond 6.1.7 in this configuration
  2. Use loader 1.03b and DS3615 DSM 6.2.x.  As mentioned you need an Intel NIC installed and your Broadcom must be disabled in BIOS
