XPEnology install on Thecus N7700


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


I would like to replace the firmware of my Thecus N7700 by XPEnology !


I downloaded lots of version of XPEnology DSM 4.x and every time when i boot with thumb drive i get the message "This kernel requieres an x86-64 CPU, but only detect an I686 CPU...etc..."


So even with different version i cannot pass this step....


Is anybody can help with this matter?


The motherboard has a bios awardbios v6.00PG phoenix technologies

for N7700 / 8800 Release Ver 01

There is an adapter Marvell 88SE63xx/64xx Bios


Main processor intel celeron M 1.86 Ghz (133x14)

Ram 3Go


I would like to test first the installation of XPEnology on a spare Hardrive, then if it is okay i would like to get a spare flash module where the current firmware of thecus is store to install DSM on this flash module and fully use the 7x 1Tb hard drives



1- What repack should i use?

3- then is it possible to install DSM on the flash module which is separate from the volume of hard drive?

2- last, will it be possible to upgrade to 5.xxx version of DSM?


Any comments are welcomed!

1. Your problem is, that most of the loaders are 64bit based and your CPU is only 32bit. Look for Nanoboot - which also has a 32bit loader.

2. No, DSM is installed on all your harddisks - that's the nature of Synology. The thumb drive only holds the syno-bios.

3. I've upgraded from 4.3 to 5.0, but from Trantor to Gnoboot - all data/shares intact, need to setup most configs.
