that will depend on the loader version you use, type of the loader (3615, 3617, 918+) and even bios settings (loader 1.03b for 3615/17 cand use uefi, need csm/legacy mode)

you should consult this

https://xpenology.com/forum/topic/13333-tutorialreference-6x-loaders-and-platforms/

and be more specific about what hardware you use and what you installed / tested

something lost in translation?

as you dont have a synlogy system yet, how would you update "from" a synology system?

use dsm 6.2.3 and loader 1.03b or 1.04b (depends on your cpu, see link above)
