HELP! I accidentally installed the latest DSM

Recommended Posts

I was following the normal procedure of upgrading the USB stick to 5.2-5967 Bootloader.

 

In Synology Assistant, the Status read "Migratable". I followed the wizard BUT when I got to the DSM selection screen, I accidentally picked the option where it downloads the update from the web.

 

It seems like it downloaded DSM version 6 and my bootloader is 5.2-5967.

 

Now in Synology Assistant, I am getting a Status "Recoverable". I have tried to recover many times and my machine only reboots and does not else.

 

Can someone advice or direct me with a solution on how I can go back to a working Xpenology Box.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Alright, I fixed the problem. I installed 5.1-5022 bootloader into the USB stick and booted from that. It then showed "Migratable" again. Then I used the associated PAT file to install the OS. Then I took the latest bootloader of 5.2. Finally, I installed the latest PAT file. Unfortunately, I had to do a clean install so I lost all my applications but some settings remained. Luckily, my data stayed intact. :grin:
