Installing XPEnology on new ProLiant MicroServer

Recommended Posts

Hello XPEnology,

 

I've just bought a new NAS on which I wish to use XPEnology.

 

Reading through numerous How-to guides, I'm still not 100% sure on the way I am going to do this, as there seems to be so many options, so I thought I'd ask here before going on.

 

1) Is there a updated guide somewhere which relates to the newest version that XPEnology supports? (Read that there was instances of the newest version being locked from Synology)

 

2) Solution to installing without USB drive. Can this be done to work without a small USB drive connected for reboots? (I saw this filename: XPEnoboot 5.2-5644.4 DS3615xs, and thought it might be possible)

The guide listed requires the VMWare ESXI environment to be installed on the microserver first. It's up to you if you want to do that. I don't bother with a VM and installed xpenology directly onto the microserver. This requires a USB stick to hold the boot image.
