Half Working DSM6 on PC with info & pic

Recommended Posts

After couple days trying to install DSM 6.0.1 on a PC with different hardware and other combination. I have reached the end and will reveal all the info I gathered.

 

My hardware setup:

mobo: Asus J1900I-C, as a standalone setup.

NIC: Intel Gigabit CT Desktop PCI-E EXPI9301CTBLK 82574L 9301CT

Note: the onboard RTL NIC doesn't support by DSM, so I went online bought a old & cheap Intel chip 82574L NIC as someone mentioned about the compatible issue. It works on DSM 5.2 as well.

RAM: 4G SO-DIMM

HD: 32G SATA old SSD for testing

USB drive stick: for booting the loader, which made by dynax

File name: DSM_DS3615xs_7393_boot.img or DSM_DS3615xs_7393_bootX.img, these 2 files are identical

Another Windows PC for access DSM 6's WebGUI.

 

Important Installing tip: Make sure USB booting using leged mode, not UEFI, because it won't work. If you see blank underline flashing on your screen, reboot (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and go to mobo BIOS and check and save the setting again.

 

My install process result:

1. Boot menu select "Install Synology DSM 6.0_7393"

2. screen will show:

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.

3. Windows PC use Synology Assistant, will find its IP. Use connect to open with a browser to install DSM 6.0.1-7393

4. Brand new install successful, which erase the entire old disk's data.

5. Reboot. END

 

Here is the post-install process result:

Scenario A: Boot menu select "RUN" result:

screen will show:

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.

But after 10~15 seconds, the system will shutdown itself.

 

Scenario B: Boot menu select "Install Synology DSM 6.0_7393" result:

screen will show:

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.

IP can access via WebGUI to creat DSM's name, admin account name & password, then login in.

 

After login, I can apply DSM 6.0.1-7393 update2.

 

Things that can't do list:

1. Storage Manager annot creat valume, either ext4 for btrfs.

2. USB External drive doesn't show on next to Notifications and within Control Panel's External Devices. But it shows on Info Center's General.

3. The Widgets doesn't show and CPU, RAM, upload and download speed.

 

I have tried to install DSM 5.2 with vaolume created first, then try to use MIGRATE to intsall DSM 6. But, this won't work, I have to make clean install which had to wipe out the existing volume.

 

Boot Selection:

After booting: you can use WebGUI to access. It unlike traditional XPEnology which will show LOGIN:

50_boot_select_run.jpg

 

Login in ok and info.

If I select RUN at the boot menu, the system will shutdown after few sec

I also setup successfully with DS3615xs 5.2-5967.1 and even DSM 6.0.1 (6.0_7393) which downloaded from synology but it is impossible to create volume for HDD.

 

System is:

HP Elite 8000 CMT chipset Q43/45

Core 2 duo E8400

2GB RAM

 

I have tried setup in Virtual Box and get same result. Can not create volume.

So I have to use 5.2-5644.5. All things are OK.
