DSM 6.2 Loader (with MBR partition Table)

Recommended Posts

For those who need a MBR Bootloader for DSM 6.2 i've uploaded it here, if someone will give them a Chance...

i've successfully installed this on an Supermicro X7DBP-i with Intel Blackford 5000P Chipset.

It is a loader for the DSM6.2-23739.pat and can be directly upgraded to 6.2.2-24922 Update 2..

this loader is based on Jun's Mod of Genesys Loader and done with their help!...
Thanks a lot..

I've succesfully installed DSM 6.2.2-24922 update 2 to my Supermicro Server !!!..

 

After a lot of fails with installing for 916+ or 918+ i tried the DS3615xs Version

Took the 1.02 MBR Loader of Genesys and replaced the files with thes from 1.03b Loader…
and it worked !

THANKS! This is absolutely what I needed. The QNAP TS-x69 Pro board has the option to disable UEFI boot and boot just legacy but for some reason the normal bootloader from the Jun's would not boot in legacy mode on this device. UEFI would boot but then no ethernet. I know legacy on MBR worked ok too as I booted FreeDOS usb stick. Thanks to your modded MBR loader its working great! Damn QNAP OS is limited to 3GB or it locks up and also prevents SSD cach on this older model. XPeneology and DSM breaks both those beariers and give this old NAS new life 8GB RAM and a pair of 500GB SSDs for cache.

Thank you! Finally boot on the HP xw4600 board. I tested all bootloader without MBR, no chance, even after BIOS update not. Is in my practice the first board where I needed loader with MBR.

Hi, 

 

first of all a big thank you to Big_11 for his great additional work.💪

 

But currently I have a "small" problem...😕  

 

To explain: I have an IBM X3200 M3 server ( UEFI and BIOS ) with 4x 4TB SAS hard disks in the LSI RAID/SAS controller and 3x 4TB SATA hard disks directly on the motherboard and an additional 1x SSD 120GB. All hard drives, except the SSD, are connected in RAID5 with DSM 6.2.

 

Well, after changing your loader with MBR and changing to "Leagcy boot" ( BIOS ) only the SATA hard drives are recognized and not the SAS hard drives in the LSI RAID/SAS controller. 

Now I have updated my DSM to the current DSM 6.2.2., but all my data - just under 16 TB - is now virtually gone. 🥺

 

In the BIOS, I have already looked and checked them all. At booing, the SAS disks are displayed, but in the DSM they are not there.

What can/must I do? Do you or someone else have a solution or idea how I can get all my data back?

It seems to be a driver issue.. 

Look if your RAID-Adapter is supported! 

Try Another "extra.lzma" for your Version of bootloader...

Thanks this loader works great. I was searching for one because all other loaders do not work with my setup.

 

This loader also works with DSM 6.2.3. 

 

My setup works fine.

I moved all files of loader 1.04b on this MBR and it work fine for DS918+ !

 

So I decided to resize partitions for fit fillezilla with synoboot for multiboot, and it work !

 

For everybody interrested to have filezilla on synoboot, copy all live folder to first partition and add after grub.cfg:


menuentry "Clonezilla live (Default settings, VGA 800x600)" --class os {
  search --set -f /live/vmlinuz
  linux /live/vmlinuz boot=live union=overlay username=user config components quiet noswap edd=on nomodeset enforcing=0 locales= keyboard-layouts= ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param="" ocs_live_batch="no" vga=800 ip= net.ifnames=0  splash i915.blacklist=yes radeonhd.blacklist=yes nouveau.blacklist=yes vmwgfx.enable_fbdev=1
  initrd /live/initrd.img
}

Hi can you create an MBR loader for DS3617xs? I have an e5-2665 and want to use all 16 cores instead of 8. (Plex Media Server among other applications)

 

DS3615xs only supports up to 8 cores. 

Thanks!

Check your hdd settings in bios.
