XPEnoboot 5.2.5565.2 install/upgrade problem

Recommended Posts

So, I've got a generic x86-64 build running as a DS3615xs. It was running fine as 5.1, I stupidly upgraded to 5.2 and now have many many issues that I seem unable to resolve no matter how many times I read the threads pertaining to the upgrade procedure. Can't use the storage manager, still get lots of "patch not found" errors on boot, etc.

 

I thought the simplest way "forward" would be to downgrade again, but I seem unable to. If I boot from my old XPEnoboot (5.1.5022.3) media, and choose to install/upgrade, I can happily boot into the wizard to perform a migration, but the procedcure fails with an error about needing to use version 5565 or later. I have already edited my /etc/VERSION using vi, it currently contains:

 

majorversion="5"
minorversion="1"
buildphase="hotfix"
buildnumber="5021"
smallfixnumber="0"
builddate="2014/11/12"

 

So I thought about trying to reinstall 5.2.5565 (and then reinstall update 1) by booting from my XPEnoboot 5.2.5565.2 media, but no matter how many times I try, selecting the "install/upgrade" mode from the bootmenu results in the machine booting normally, rather than in install mode!? :?::?::?:

 

Am I missing something obvious as to why I can't boot to install/upgrade mode with 5.2?

 

Am I missing something else (that's also obvious) about my inability to downgrade DSM?

 

Alternatively, am I missing something regarding fixing my storage manager / missing patch problems?

 

Many Thanks guys!

If you are using usb drive to boot, just restore the image once again and try booting with correct bootloader. After an update boot image gets corrupted sometimes.

I am having very similar problems, did you ever find a fix for this? I am getting the errors on boot and also not able to get into storage manager and time backup.

 

Thanks!
