brantje is suggesting that you create a test VM for installing the updates, it has nothing to do with DSM6.

 

The DSM6 feature is to run virtual DSM machines (guests) on a DSM box (host - bare metal).

 

You don't have to install all the updates individually. Just grab the latest.

 

Why are yo not using 5.2-5644?

yeah i know what brantje was saying but like i said i have no idea on doing / creating a VM

 

 

an i'm not on 5644 as when i came out there was issues with it to start with an mine was working fine so went on the if it's not broke don't fix it theory, but obviously updates / bootloaders came out and solved the issues but i didn't upgrade as i was busy doing other things but im free again to do the upgrade now

 

you reckon going straight to DSM 5.2 5644 update 5 will be fine ??

Try to download Oracle VM VIrtualBox and play around with it, a hypervisor is a useful and powerful tool with many use cases.

 

HowTos can be found via google.

 

 

Update to 5.2-5644 then apply update 5 or 8.
