DSM 7 Preview Program Announced

Recommended Posts

Please, only try this on a non-production system you don't mind being irrevocably corrupted.  The likelihood of the loader failing is extremely high.

And, given the DS918 code base utilizing Haswell+ instructions, I would not expect your Westmere CPUs to work even if the loader does.

 

Lastly, even on a compatible Synology box, it is very likely that a full reinstall will be required in order to replace the preview version with the eventual release of DSM 7.0.

Oh, don't worry. it's all non-production, all my actual important data is on my windows home sever (hosted on the same box) although oddly, Synology is more stable than windows server 2019 in some ways.
