XPEnoboot doesn't work on RTL8111E

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I've question about NIC. I am using XPEnology on my ITX PC but with gnoBoot.

I cannot use XPEnoboot because of network adapter. My PC is based on ECS KBN-I/2100 (V1.1) motherboard.

After booting from XPEnoboot my NAS is not available in home network. It looks like XPEnoboot has no drivers for my network adapter (RTL8111E Gigabit Fast Ethernet Controller).

Is there any chance that i can put some extra boot parameters to XPEnoboot to force loading module for my NIC?

 

Thanks in advance for replies.

Regards,

Seba

If anyone will have same problem/hardware may use params below. Works for me:

rmmod=r8169,r8169_new insmod=r8168

I'm having the same problem = can' even get XPEnoboot to work (eth0 not running).

 

How did you solve this? I tried adding the above to the boot parameters by pressing tab but it made no difference

I used xpenoboot usb stick with my PC. I have changed syslinux.cfg by adding parameters (see my second post).

It works for me. Just remember to add those parameters in every submenu (xpenology, debug and install).

Thanks for the reply. I'll try it when I get home. I've also bought an Intel based nic with supposedly supported drivers but I'm getting the same error! Wondering now if there is something even more basic I'm doing wrong!

Nope, made no difference. This is with the latest XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2

 

My syslinux.cfg looks like:

 

UI menu.c32
PROMPT 0
TIMEOUT 50
DEFAULT xpenology
MENU TITLE XPEnoboot 5.2-5565.2-d6e5157

LABEL xpenology
      MENU LABEL XPEnology DSM 5.2-5565
      KERNEL /zImage
      APPEND root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0EA0 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 rmmod=r8169,r8169_new insmod=r8168

      KERNEL /zImage
      APPEND root=/dev/md0 ihd_num=0 netif_num=4 syno_hw_version=DS3615xs sn=B3J4N01003 vid=0x0EA0 pid=0x2168 loglevel=0 vga=0x305 upgrade=5.2-5565 rmmod=r8169,r8169_new insmod=r8168

 

Is that right? I realise I'll have to mess around to get all the syno features to work but for now just getting the ethernet working would be a massive success!

 

EDIT: I also tried Nanoboot 5.0.3.2 as stated working with the exact Intel PCI-E NIC i have and still both eth not running (I event tried adding the code above to get the REALTEK working.

 

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!?!?! :-|:-|:-|:sad:
