[SOLVED]upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2


Recommended Posts

I originally installed DSM 4.1 from the packages below.


DSM_DS3612xs_2668.pat (83.4 MB)

SynoBoot_3612xs_4.1++.img (200.0 MB)

I migrated to 4.2 with these packages below.


DS3612xs_3202-Repack.pat (94.3 MB)

microserver-dsm-4.2.img (123.0 MB)

I was able to keep all my files except the PEAR installation, but that was not hard to reinstall. I also had to reinstall the Bootstrap as it was deleted with the migration. Everything is up and running on 4.2. (I'm also running a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P Motherboard with Core 2 Duo Processor)

I also have the EP45-UD3P. For the initial install of 4.2 I had to put my drive on one of the purple ports. If I used yellow, the install would complete, but it would hang when I would reboot. If memory serves me, it would get stuck when looking for AHCI drives during bootup. Is this something I'm doing wrong in the BIOS settings?


When I installed using the drive plugged into one of the purple ports, install and startup would go without a hitch.


I only have one drive in the system (just as a test).


I would Like to use the yellow ports so I'm not limited to two drives in raid.



-Any help would be appreciated. I'm very new to RAID but we have multiple synology DS1812+ at work.
