xpenoboot not working - eth0 not found

Recommended Posts

Not sure what is going on here but I'm failing on step1.

burned ISO to disc and booted up.

Seems to start OK, gets to login part but just before login part I see that eth0 is not found (no network?) even though all is connected.

 

I'm not sure if I need to edit the files before i burn them to the disc for booting.

 

using the latest version.

 

any help would be greatly appreciated...very new to this but would love to get up and running soon.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

 

Can you post some more info please to help diagnose your issue?

 

eg

Hardware spec; motherboard, LAN adapter(s) etc. If the mobo has a built in LAN adapter, is it enabled in the BIOS?

 

Does Syno Assistant find your device ?

 

There is a hardware compatability list here;

I will get that info. for you when I get back home - don't have it handy here.

 

But the LAN is active in the BIOS, light is ON - this machine was working as my Linux box with NO networking issues.

 

It is the built in Gigabit lan and it is enabled.

 

Running Syno Assistant from my main computer on my network does NOT find it.

 

I did NOT edit any config files for serial # and/or MAC address - not sure if this was required. One doc mentions that you do NOT need to modify the config file if you're not using synology services so I didn't bother.

 

I will try to post more info. on my hardware when I get home.

Here is the information from my system:

 

Motherboard: ASUS P5B

CPU : Intel Core 2 duo cpu 6300 1.86Ghz X 2

USB : Intel 82801H

Network : Realtek RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit (seems to be on the compatible list you sent)

SATA : JMicron JMB363 SATA/IDE Controller

 

As I mentioned, I do see the lights ON my network adapter where the cable plugs into the MB so I believe it's working.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

:grin: Retried a couple times.....I modified the .cfg file to simply add:

 

mac1=00xxxxxxxx (give the real MAC of my network card) to each of the boot options

 

xpenoboot still says eth0 not found but this time when I run syno assistant it finds the NAS.

 

Step 1 DONE!!!

 

Now onto figuring out how to install the DSM.
