Install Xpenology in 4G SSD

Recommended Posts

I think it might sound a bit crazy but anyone has some creative idea on how to Install Xpenology into a 4G SSD hard drive, please?

I mean I want to boot up a xpenology with a USB boot disk, and then install the whole DSM into another SD Card/usb disk. Is it feasible?

XPenology installs a copy of itself into every drive. The OS itself is super small. Unless you are only planning to use that 4GB drive as your only drive, it makes no sense to install it unto that drive.

Before the upgrade to DSM 5.1 I ran my Xpenology build off of a 32g SSD following this guide:

But the creater of that thread said he wasn't going to update it to work with 5.1. I am sure it is possible to make some changes to make it work, but it is beyond my Linux knowledge
