DSM 7.1 on ReadyNAS RN312?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is it possible to install DSM 7.1 on ReadyNAS RN312? Is the platform powerful enough?


Platform: Netgear ReadyNAS RN312
CPU: Intel Atom CPU D2701, 2.13 GHz, 2 cores, 2 threads, microarchitecture: Saltwell (2011)
Closest match in Intel's public database is Atom D2700: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/sku/59683/

Number of drives: 2
Memory: DDR3L, 4 GB, 1066 MHz 
BIOS: AMI v. 2.14.1219 (2011)
Other: HDMI out works.


I noticed that @Homeless managed get DSM 6.1 running on RN312:


Booting up plain TinyCore went fine on my RN312. Although I could not get the changed boot priority order to stick. After reboot RN312 forced the boot priority back to default. It's a bit unclear if @Homeless was able to make the new BIOS settings stick (with which changed BIOS settings?) or if the boot order was manually overridden on each boot.


I got quite confused by all the different loaders and DSM versions to choose from. Like this thread:
DSM 7.x Loaders and Platforms

Which DSM version and loader would be the best for RN312?
