Hello, I am fairly new to xpenology and am having an issue. I have 8 hdd ranging in sizes (2 6tb, 3 3tb, 3 2tb). I am using a asrock fm2a88m-hd+ motherboard (8 sata3 6gbs ports). 4gb ram. I don't have an issue with getting xpenology to boot, but all I have every been able to get it to read is 4 hdd. No matter how I plug in the drives. I have run dmesg from a shh link, and all it sees is up to ata4. Is there something I am missing?

it might be that xpe drivers only 'see' 4 of the bolton d4 sata controller channels. I've had some six sata port amd based mobos that only the first 4 show up.

you could try changing the drive type to ide/legacy rather than ahci, disable any raid mode and hot plug settings (if they exist).

Thanks to Gronaldo, It was just a setting in bios. I switched the bios to ACHI (read in another post that it was not supported so I never tried it), disabled the SATA IDE combined mode, rebooted and it showed all 8 drives. I then reinstalled the 4 port SATA pcie card and now I have the ability to run 12 drives. Thanks To All
