Dell R430 Server DSM Installation

Recommended Posts



Due to server replacement, I would like to recycle our old server with DSM software. 


Boot: Jun 1.03b

DSM 6.2.3 : DSM_DS3617xs_25426.pat


Today I tried to install XPenology on a Dell poweredge.Running the bootloader from the USB stick succeeded. The diskstation is detected by the synology assistant, but when the webpage opens the the message ' no harddisks detected' pops up. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

might depend on the controller you choose, in general ahci works and on 3615/17 lsi sas 2xxx/3xxx non-raid chips (IT mode aka HBA mode)

anything else is optional

Dear Master 


Thank you very much for your suggestion, you solved the problem. The system sees the hard disks and the installer starts.

My next problem is that the installation starts, then stops at 95% and doesn't continue.

After installation is complete, the system should start again this does not happen.

I tested the installation with all 2 recommended DSM software ...

DS 3617xs 6.2.0 / 6.2.3


Any suggestions on this?
