Hi,

 

Yes, tested with "virtual" IDE.

The version compiled specifically for ESXi has IDE support at boot. And it works without any problem as boot device. I feel that if some developer adds support for legacy IDE devices in the kernel you can use it also for raid.

 

Ask for it! http://xpenology.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=521

Hi,

 

Anyone can test if this new release has IDE support?

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=937

 

Only two PATA drivers is included in this kernel:

SiS PATA

AMD/NVidia PATA

 

If you want more, just tell me :wink:

that can be start und shutdown like the original synology ....

Hi Trantor,

 

I feel that you need to also enable:

 

PATA_LEGACY

PATA_CMD640

PATA_VIA

PATA_WINBOND

PATA_SIL680

PATA_RDC

PATA_PDC2027X

PATA_MARVELL

PATA_JMICRON

PATA_CMD64X

 

I think that this include 99% of current systems. Or you can enable as a module all of current Linux-3.x PATA drivers.

Hi,

 

I feel that the answer is NO!

 

I explain: You can schedule by software a shutdown on a specific time. You can configure your BIOS to boot at specific time. But, you need to create a software that changes your bios values to set the new boot time. This is a hard work!

 

Workaround: Configure your XPEnology to Wake-On-Lan, and use your router (with OpenWRT or another custom distribution) to wakeup your XPEnology at specific time.
