HELP - DS1511+ Bootloader image or working Grub.conf

Recommended Posts

The Bootloader module in my DS1511+ is corrupted, and I've created a new one from a guide on the Russian side of the XPEnology forum, edited the "vender" and grub.conf files to correctly identify my MAC addresses, Serial Number and USB PID & VID values, but cannot for the life of me get it to install DSM successfully. It always crashes at 56/57% through the web GUI with error code 13, commonly associated with a lack of PID & VID definition. I've run Jun's bootloader and successfully installed it that way, as a DS3615xs, but even though this is a legitimate DS1511+ I cannot for the life of me, install the OEM software, to allow full online support & capability. Tried a few USB sticks but still no luck.

 

Does anyone have a working Bootloader image or Grub.conf file they can help me with? I'm unsure if the PID & VID definition is written wrongly, and this may help. Thanks!

Did you have a look at the boot image posted here ?

Seems like that might be inteded to be used on the original Synology boot-device. DSM5.2-5967.U.6 (it's old, but if it works you can update).

 

If I remember correct, the original Syno USB boot-device have a very specific VID/PID, 

and only a few "normal" USB sticks can be used when faking it with non-emulated Syno systems.

Thank you, yes that was the image I used, but I might make sure I have the specific DSM you referenced. I was able to pull the VID & PID from the failed bootloader too, I might have another crack using those details

with the right usb flash drive and the right tool you can do what manufacturer in china do and enter your own vid/pid

i did this last year but had not much use for it and gave it to someone here in the forum

i was using DynaMassStorageProductionTool, maybe even wrote about it here in the forum (can't remember)

that was the initiator article

Based on the filename of the bootimage, that bootimage is the specified DSM version,

so you might need the assosciated .PAT file to complete the install before adding the update 6.
