DS918 + installation problems in Asrock J5040-itx


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

 

I can't install dsm on my Asrock J5040-itx board. I have read in the update report that several colleagues from the forum have succeeded.

 

I have done the installation as they describe with JUN'S LOADER v1.04b - 918+ and DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 3. But since it only lets me boot from the pendrive in uefi mode (I can't in any way get it to boot in legacy) I think the problem is here (in boot mode).

 

When I start up in uefi it detects the computer and I proceed to do the manual installation of the pat and when it finishes and restarts I no longer detect it anywhere.

 

I hope your answers and that you can help me solve the problem.

Thanks in advance

if you get as far as seeing the booted loader in network you don't have boot problem

you can try to extract zImage and rd.gz. from the 6.2.3 *.pat file (using 7zip) copy that to the 2nd partition of the loader (replace the file there) and also copy new extra/extra2.lzma

from here

to the 2nd partition, also replace the files, that way the loader will be updated to use the kernel of dsm 6.2.3

try if you still see the loader modded this way in network (before installing the *.pat file)
