You cannot boot from the microsd AFAIK .

ALso I'm not sure that WOL works .

I use the B120I raid card to control the disks as JBOD, same in xpenology as this allows the FAN to slow to silent.

I have mine set for (CPU) performance profile as it never really gets stressed, and in silent mode it was slow to respond.

I installled from usb and just leave it in all the time, powers up and down and reboots no problem.

I have installed to "bare metal" rather than hypervisor (esxi) and do not use ILO.

I did a full disk scan on first use which can take many hours.
