N70E-DR Celeron 1037u fails to load Nanoboot


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is my first topic post - I have been reading this forum and, following the excellent instructions, got running DSM 5 4458 on the Giada N70E-R celeron 1037u system - thanks for all the help! I have run into an issue I cannot figure out, however. I am trying to upgrade to 4482 - using nanoboot - but for some reason, I get a black screen after the initial boot interface (ie fails to load nanoboot) - trying several versions of Nanoboot from to All have the same issue. I tried disabling 1 of the 2 NICs and disabling various other options in the bios - nothing fixes it. I am running 1 3 tb WD red Nas drive.


Thanks for any help/suggestions you can provide.

It seems like no one knows the answer - so I am sticking with 4458 for now. I think it is good enough for my needs, but when I added disks earlier, it slowed down on load considerably...hope that doesn't happen again this time :\


Here are my observations - feel free to correct my understanding, thanks.

  • 1: Nanoboot seems a little unstable compared to gnoboot at this point. I am unsure if sancome is still actively developing as he hasn't responded to comments on his site for a time. I sent him a message - will see if he replies.
    2: Gnoboot seems to be completely inactive - too bad as it seems more stable. Anybody know if the author is waiting for next major dsm release or has given up on the project?
    3. I looked at ESXi as an option as well, but feel bare metal is a better fit for me at this point in time.
