Anyone running this as virtual machine on N40L


Recommended Posts

Wanted to get a HP N40L and use it as a HTPC media centre. Wondered if anyone is running the synoboot on a virtual machine on the N40L and what the performance is like. I like alot of the features of DSM i had a DS110J before it died so wanted to replace it with something like this but wanted the features of running a normal pc too.

I used VirtualBox to get XPEnology running on my N40L. Performance was fine (for what I expected for it), only ran to the issue that whenever I tried to install the 'video station' package it deed seem to make my installation useless. Every time it was telling me it was 'updating the system', I was unable to access the device.

 

My suggestion, try the packages first and test them extensively before putting any valuable data on it.
