Where to start from?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have an old PC and would like to try installing Xpenology. 

Can you please let me know how to go about it? 

How do you connect more than 4 SATA disks, given my board oly has 4.


Many thanks

@bobby121418 it depends, what kind of motherboard do you have? Which CPU? The more information you give the more chance the members of this forum will assist you. For example the DS918+ loader will work on a Haswell CPU and above. More info here


If you want to connect more SATA, again that depends on the motherboard and how many PCI Express slots you have and which generation they are. If you do have available PCIEx slots you can buy SAS PCI Express card to add more drives.
