Migration to XPEnology


Recommended Posts

Dear folks,


Do anyone know how to select a boot disk in nano boot?


I have set up a Q2900 XPEnology (DSM 5.0-4458 Update 2) with 2x3T disks in SATA3 ports and copied all my old 212J also with 2 x 3T disk data to the box. Then, I tried to move the 212J disks to the Q2900 SATAT2 ports, however, I found that the nano boot booted the DSM with the old disks and asked for a migration installation :shock: ... so, anyone know how to make nanoboot to start with the SATA3 port disks? or I need to clean the old 212J disks before plugging into the Q2900?


btw, fyi, the Q2900 USB port doesn't work with 5.0-4458 Update 2...


Thanks in advance!

I finally wiped out all partitions in the old 212J 3T disks and the nanaboot could boot with the new q2900 3T disks then. The old disks are shown as disk1 and disk2 and new disks are disk3 and disk4 in DSM..I created a vol2 with the old disks and performing data scrubbing now..

If there is any others way to fix this, please also let me know (i.e. cfg nano boot). thanks!
