Upgrading Trantor 4.3 to Nanoboot 5.0


Recommended Posts

Is this pretty easy to do?

 

There doesn't appear to be a guide (or even much mention) or upgrading from 4.3 to 5.0 in the forums - is it the usual method of writing the .IMG file, booting Nanoboot and uploading the .PAT file for the latest DSM build?

 

I don't have access to a VGA cable to do the initial install (to catch the Grub boot loader) so is it possible to set the first boot to go straight to "Install/Upgrade" by amending the Grub config file?

Hi,

 

I upgraded my Trantor 4.3 to Nanoboot 5.0 yesterday without any issue.

I used method that you described above:

- stop my NAS an remove stick with trantor boot image

- write IMG of Nanoboot to new USB stick

- boot on new stick

- select upgrade in bootlist (I connected my NAS to my TV, I do not know if it can be bone without screen)

- apply pat file from synology assistant

 

I had to re-apply privileges on shared folders and create again my backup schedules. Everything else were kept (Plex DB, notification parameters, etc...)

 

For information, nanoboot 5.0.2.4 works fine with an ASUS h87-i plus without ESXi or other hypervisor. It boot from USB stick.

Yea I'm very interested. I just installed 4.3 in a VM before I realized 5.0 was out. I did a lot of setup and don't want to lose anything by starting fresh. So I definitely would appreciate any update steps if they're out there for an ESXi variant.
