DSM 6.1.x Loader

Recommended Posts

I just tried loader v1.01 on AMD5350 & ASROCK AM1B-ITX. The loader booted, but installation of DSM failed.

 

Any way, loader v1.02b with DSM6.1.5 (DSM_DS3617xs_15254.pat) is working.

 

BTW, I just order a cheap used 8-Port SATA/PCI-X Controller SATA II 3Gbps Card (with Marvell 88SX6081 Chip). Not knowing the compatibility. I will post the results when I have it.

 

There is no need to use any other loader other than the latest unless you wish to remain below DSM 6.1.

 

Please look around the forum and post your questions in the adequate section/sub-forum. Use the search function. If needed create your own topic.

I am keeping this topic alive only for technical questions regarding the loader itself as installation questions can be addressed more efficiently in other sections.

I have an AMD System, i tried the 1.02b but not working. The loader start booting but restart after 15~ seconds. With 5.2 loader everything works great. 

Today i saw that in the download section there is another loader by Quicknick. I tried and the synology assistant found my system. But when i try to setup, it says there is no HDD.

 

Any tip?

 

Thanks!

88SX6081

-> sata_mv.ko

 

 

all sata_*.ko  (also (sata_mv.ko) are broken in dsm 6.1 kernel source from synology, so no luck when it comes to this controller

 

there are cheap 4-port marvel controller that use the ahci diver, if it has to be 8-port then maybe this helps

Jun 1.02b seems to work fine on my old ASUS e2km1l-deluxe AMD-based machine. Are there problems to expect from running on AMD platform, or would I've hit those problem already during install if existent?

No, if you've managed to install it & everything's working you should be ok.

Not booting anymore for me on VMWare Workstation with 1.02 ds3617 loader. It does say it boots, but nothing on the network.

Is that after attempting the 6.1.6 update?  If so, you should be posting in the Critical Updates section in the 6.1.6 thread

Just wanted to say than you for all the work being done here; I have implemented these nas setups with out fail on a couple systems.

 

But also wanted to share this info if people were interested; I have a VmWare ESXi 6.5 server running a AMD Ryzen 5 1600 cpu, and using the DS3617xs 6.1 v1.0aplha vmware images (after converting the vmware to ESXi 6.5) it booted up just fine and have had no issues; running DSM 6.1.6.

 

Here is my cpuinfo from ssh on the system:

Always download manual in DSM en then i install it. I have 6 sataports on my motherboard and an M1015 SAS controller. I don`t know the exact drives that are not seen but i thought it was from my SAS card.

So it looks like you have 14 drive channels (6+8) but 12 is the default unless syno info.conf is altered but somehow it looks like your sataport edit is fixing it until update. I would check and ensure your 9 drives are connected to the first 9 channels (6 onboard and 3 sas) but you will need to determine the drive numbers/channels in DSM. If your 9 drives are on the first 9 channels seen by DSM no config changes should be needed and no rebuilds on update
