Boot USB stick removed

Recommended Posts

Once DSM started, no you don't need to keep usb stick anymore because DSM is installed on hard drive(s)


in the meantime, I think it's a bad idea to remove it since starting on DSM require a Synology valid serial number which is provided by the USB stick.


If you reboot your PC, NAS or wathever, that will not boot on DSM.

ok thanks for pointing this out.

But on an Xpenology there are not update operations so I'd expect this to run without

Yes it will run without but in the event of say a power cut it won’t reboot. Also there really isn’t a valid reason to remove it.
