Hello,

 

It's strange, i have downloaded this iso file but i cant' open it.

Try whis img file by creating a Loader 1.02b.vmdk file containing this lines if you use vmware

CID=22733fd4
parentCID=ffffffff
isNativeSnapshot="no"
createType="vmfs"

# Extent description
RW 102400 VMFS "synoboot.img" 0

# The Disk Data Base
#DDB

ddb.adapterType = "lsilogic"
ddb.deletable = "true"
ddb.encoding = "UTF-8"
ddb.longContentID = "6cbe0014ae8067fbd13c4b9522733fd4"
ddb.thinProvisioned = "1"
ddb.toolsInstallType = "4"
ddb.toolsVersion = "10247"
ddb.uuid = "60 00 C2 9a ee da ca 33-df 5e 04 3f 80 55 f9 62"
ddb.virtualHWVersion = "10"

For ESXi I have used this converter to convert the ISO. 

https://www.starwindsoftware.com/converter

Use starwind V2V Converter
Select VMF Prealicated Image
Select IDE

 

I did change the boot order in the Juns loader so the Vm loader was first in the boot order.

 

Here is an old video that may help.

the only option available is ESXi, so you should not have problems regarding boot choice, it's for DS3615xs (i find has a better custom package support than DS3517xs).

 

- extract and upload synoboot.vmdk and synoboot.img in your datastore
- create a new VM (HW Version 11 or 13) dependent if you are on ESXi 6.0u2 or ESXi 6.5b

- operating system should be Other -> FreeBSD 64bit
- set bios to EFI
- set nic to VMXNET3, set the mac manual to the same as the one in the grub.cfg

- set scsi controller 0 to "LSI logic SAS"

- add sata controller 0 if not there yet present
- add existing hdd -> browse datastore -> add synoboot.vmdk
- edit this hdd to "independent - persistent" and sata 0:0 on controller 0

- add how many new scsi disk you like, thin provisioning - dependent

- save and poweron the VM
- from your browser, go to find.synology.com, it should pop-up, connect and install it (manual or from internet is the same), reboot after finish the setup
- create a new volume to your needs, if you want shr you have to modify synoinfo.conf

- download this zip for open-vm-tools https://www.dropbox.com/s/k4hc343gwdepiuf/open-vm-tools_bromolow-6.0_10.0.7-1.spk.zip?dl=0

- extract the zip, install the spk in package manager
- now ESXi should see that vm tools are installed and running


Pretty much done.

Thanks a ton for posting this.. it worked perfectly! This was literally the only ESXi image that I could find, now that they've decided to distribute ISOs that I can't mount. Did I miss something? Or are people really not using 1.02b with ESXi?
