DSM 6.1.x Loader


Recommended Posts

ok. Problem is done. My mistake. Bios was resetet and the Settings for the modification too.

 

I have a few problems:

 

- HP N54L with russian bios mod for five hdd and hotswap

- fifth hdd not supported in dsm 6.0.1

- SHR in 5.2 (dont know how to activate in 6.0.1) Is this the problem?

- Don't know with sataportmap - Read different. But try 411/41/51/42- nothing works.

- Try to downgrade (like tutorial in the forum or youtube) - "error: file/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod not found entering rescue mode... grub rescue> "

 

i dont know what to do now. im very tired.....

Hello Guys,

I will post my experience with a new motherboard i got and everything worked with the older version of Jun's Loader just by swapping board, and using the same sata port numbers for the disks.

The motherboard is Amazing with 8 ports sata and 1151 slot with E3 1200 series Xeon.

Its the Asrock C236 WSI , you can take a look here : http://asrockrack.com/general/productde ... C236%20WSI

I use the internal USB 3 Port for the jun's loader and 8 barracuda hard disk's all on the C236 on board controller.

Both Net card works with the old version of jun's loader, I had just setup link aggregation (teaming) and all works fine.

Now I need to find a 4 port sata 3 that works nicely on my config to be able to expand my storage further..

 

I only post this in hope to help anyone holding back from c232 or c 236 chipsets...

 

Hey JUN! thanks again!

hi

 

i did a clean install on esxi 6.5 hp gen8

 

after opening the vm, adding a new harddisk 100gb ssd, upon first boot, i can connect to the webinterface, i select the part file to install

but it gives me error 35 , format disk error...

 

i think the installer tries to format the boot disk, and not the new added disk ... :smile:

 

how can i make sure the pat installation goes to the new disk instead of the bootdisk?

 

thnx

Hi

 

Just as info.

 

I have both HP N40L and HP Gen 8 Microservers working perfectly fine with Update 7 on bare metal.

 

no issues seen with any of the standard packages either :razz:

 

Many thanks to all the Devs!!!

 

Really appreciate the work you guys have done!

To add.....

 

both HP N40l and Gen8 Microservers were upgraded from "XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1" to "Jun v1.01" boot loader

and when they booted up it asked if i wanted to migrate which i did, it then asked for a PAT file which i gave the latest PAT from Synology site for DSM DS3615xs

and both servers upgraded seamlessly from DSM 5.2 to DSM 6.0.

 

I obviously burnt the new image file to my boot USB's for both servers and set the VID, PID of each stick and the respective MAC's for each server.

 

It worked great.

 

Oh and on the HP n40l i chose to boot the AMD option which works great!!

Looking for a little advice for properly mapping sata controllers/devices w/ my bare metal setup.

 

Mobo GIGABYTE GA-X170-WS details:

6 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (SATA3 0~5), by Chipset

2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3 6~7), supporting AHCI mode only, by ASMedia ASM1061 chip

 

SAS Card details:

SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 SATA

 

My intention is to use 4x SATA ports from the chipset, 0x ports from the ASMedia controller and 8x SATA ports from the SUPERMICRO card. The problem is, onboard ports 0/1 are disabled when a PCI Express card is in the x4 slot which I am using for a quad port Intel NIC. So, this poses a problem as SATA ports 0/1 (1,2 for DSM) will be blank.

 

Is there any way I can make this scenario work with append SataPortMap=XX? I haven't seen anything in the thread reference skipping the first 2x SATA ports.

Looks like this card (SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 SATA) isn't currently supported so I'll swap that out with an LSI model. Regardless, I still need to find a way for onboard Sata ports 0/1 to be ignored.

For esxi users : here you have an ovf vm export that will make the install easier:

https://mega.nz/#!Vk40FCDT!r2ertz7Eyoeh ... W2p1GLgzfs

All you need to do after import is to add your drives and edit ram/cpu to your needs (comes with 2x2cpu and 4 Gb ram), then start the vm and continue with the install process. It will start with the vmware boot option automatically, and after the install you will not see the 50mb boot drive. I didn't edit a thing in the cfg (vid or pid)

This is the loader on the first page of this topic, latest version, I just made it more easy to use it for esxi users. Here is the process:

I had to import the original vm in VMware Workstation Pro (I had errors at import in esxi 6.5), and chage to hw version 10, export to new ovf; imported the new ovf in esxi, edited a few things, start once to retain the vmware boot option, changed the boot drive to non-persistent (it's hidden in xpeno now) and exported again to the ovf in the link for easy future use. I hope it will be useful to others to; if I messed up something let me know, for me and a few others this worked nice.

Edit:

On my gen8 microserver I don't have and can't add an usb3 controller; this could be a poor choice at vm guest os version, I put "other 3.x or later linux x64", did not tried any other way yet.

Edit 2:

The usb3 issue is not present on the atached hw 10 ovf(the one in the link), you can add usb3 controller in it; my xpeno install is on a vm with hw 13 and that is why I can't add an usb3 controller.

 

Hi,

I have used "koroziv" ovf on EXSI 6.0 with no issues.

My current version of DSM : DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 7

how to use on proxmox? since it requires .iso to boot?

thank for any reply

 

Create a new VM in Proxmox. I used a IDE (0) harddisk (raw) device with 1GB storage. 512MB RAM, No CD-ROM, network E1000.

When the VM is created, use the "synoboot.img" located in this thread and use it to boot the VM. rename the "synoboot.img" to the IDE disk.

 

example: When VM "112" is created

/var/lib/vz/images/112# ls
synoboot.img  vm-112-disk-1.raw
/var/lib/vz/images/112# cp synoboot.img vm-112-disk-1.raw

 

Boot the VM and search for the installer via the Synology Assistant. Manual install the DSM_DS3615xs_8451.pat

After installing I could apply update 7 via the webinterface at this time of writing.

i have a question about the grub menu

 

upon boot you can choose baremetal or esxi

 

do you need to choose esxi when you have an exsi system? or only the first time on install?

or if you have exsi, do you always need to choose exsi in the grub menu upon boot?

I have no sata drives and only external usb 3 hard drives. Is it possible to make the synology software think that the external usb is the sata drive so that it can put the software on the external hard drive? I am looking through the forums and see something about changing the info.cfg for usb and sata but I am not sure where else to look.
