Disable certain disk on boot loader?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I am currently setting up Xpenology on SS4200-E as bare metal

 

This hardware comes with 4 SATA port along with 1 ATA dom (256MB)

 

I am trying to utilize this useless dom as a bootloader which I made it work successfully (just boot with live linux and dd bootloader to ATA dom)

 

So far its good but when I try to install pat file, synology consider this dom as disk drive and trys to install as well.

 

 

Is there any method of disabling from bootloader or some kind of trick that xpenology omit installing to this dom drive?

 

 

Thanks.

1. if your DOM have correct vid\pid - configure loader fot work with DOM vid\pid

 

2. turn off DOM (unplug) and use USB drive with xpeno

after this - make xpeno install from USB

then turn off PC and unplug USB drive and plug DOM again

change BIOS for loading from DOM

profit?

the vid/pid of the device you are booting with needs to be set in the grub settings, USB or DOM, so you will need to build two boot images for the process Lordbl4 suggested, one with each pid/vid
