Anyone succeed to install on QNAP TS451 VM (Intel x64)


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I owned an QNAP TS451 which is Intel x64 CPU, I tried to install using nanoboot XPEnoboot 5.1-5022.3 on Visualization Station but no luck :cry:


Only black screen on boot.


If this can be done, we can take both advantages features from Syno and QNAP.


Anyone have tried or others have any suggestion/comment ? I am happy to test out and provide logs here.

Hi Airtrek


I´m an owner of a TS-453Pro and, like you, I was trying to install XPEnology as a virtual machine under Virtualization Station because I really miss the packages and OS of Synology running in my old DS212+... so, I´ve tried to install it (with no success) using the next parameters:


Create VM -> New customized VM



Virtual Machine settings

Here I´ve played with the several options:

Network: Realtek

Video: Cirrus logic



I can see the image loading in the VM as you can see in the image below



But as I said without no success... the only thing that I can see is this message:



But after waiting some minutes... if I run the Synology Assistant I can´t t find any server. :cry:


So this is the most far that I reach with my knowledge... I´ll try to import a VM generated with VirtualBox to see what happens...


In the meanwhile if someone of the team members with more knowledge than me can give us some clue with this issue will be very very welcome.


Keep in touch!

I got it to work now with Vstation 2 and QTS 4.2 beta.


I converted the 5565 image with:

qemu-img convert -f raw -O qcow2 XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5565.2.img xpe.img


Created a new VM with the xpe.img and using realtek NIC and created two SATA drives


Once I booted up I saw all the init scripts start up and synology assistant found my new device.
