Stopped booting from HDD - USB Boot is fine

Go to solution Solved by jensmander,


Hello to all and big think you for all the work!


Please excuse any stupid mistakes I have made, I have tried to read as much as I can before doing anything!


I Installed to Athlon based machine using "Jun’s Loader v1.03b DS3615xs" and "DSM_DS3615xs_23739.pat" and all went well - added users etc and data, only after realising I had forgotten to change the MAC address in my grub.cfg


I searched up on changing it in the running config and that seemed it would be ok.


So I updated my USB stick and then rebooted the machine with a "ubuntu live" USB so I could read the MAC address, all good so far.


But after that one boot of the ubuntu stick, it will not boot from the HDD any more, it will and does boot fine from the install USB!


I tried a re-install of the DSM and restored my config, all went well but it still will not boot as it did after the first install from the HDD.


Just stops on the BIOS message "Loading Operating System"


Can you manually restore grub?


Any help would be appreciated, I would not like to have to start over again!


Many thanks, Mark

Xpenology doesn‘t boot from HDDs in the first place but from your stick on which you wrote your synoboot.img. If this stick is not present or not set as the 1st boot device the system won’t start.
