Tutorial: Install/Migrate DSM 5.2 to 6.1.x (Jun's loader)

Just figured out that the issue happens when setting "Set MTU value manually" to 9000, the operation fails but this value still remains despite unticking the option or to another value.

 

Yes it is not recommended to set MTU to 9000. It can lock the user out and you might need to edit the value by accessing the system partition and editing the synoinfo.conf file.

Define what "setup screens" means please. Your video doesn't seem to go until the end of what you describe.

 

I don't even see the loader booting there so you might want to configure your Bios to boot from the USB as first drive.

Dear Polanskiman,

thanks for helping!

 

Setup screens mean all info screen in video from begining till the end of this video. And video is till the end, the screen what you can see in the end of this video is final screen what i can see if i use new flashdisk (with new loader). But if i use old flashdriver with old loader and synology 5.2, booting works well. Because this i think that setup of usb as first drive is right in this machine. Maybe i need setup something else in bios. If you will be so nice, please see my bios setup in attachemet. 


Thanks for your time! Tom

I think that motherboard is quite old and might not be able to read GPT. Try using Genesys’ loader as I mention in the OP which IS MBR based.

Hi !

 

I made the upgrade on my  HP  Gen8.  Operation was successful , but on second shutdown the DSM failed to start . On the connected monitor i had the "Booting the kernel" message . Keyboard input was useless so i had to force shutdown the system and restart. This happened a few times until i got a successful start of DSM. 

 

Each time i shutdown the system this happens. Any idea how to debug this ? I have to access to console once Grub menu has made the selection. DSM logs do not reveal anything from that part.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Tnx and best regards,

Bogdan

Does this happen with a soft boot, hard boot or both?

I think your best option might be to attach a serial connection to check the full driver load/boot process, you can see any errors to help debugging

both types produces the issue .... Yet i don't have serial adapter ... i'l  get one . Meanwhile I've tried with iLO ssh connection but no luck ... when DSM didn't start i also was not able to ssh via iLO.

Is this able to be performed on a QNAP using Virtualization Station. I have 5.2 running already, but it is empty so I can delete it or not, makes no difference, but just wondering if I can install the 6.1.4 instead of 5.2. I am just not finding an .iso to boot from nor do I know which setting to use to create one for the QNAP.

 

Please advise

@gb77 jun's 1.02b loader definitely works with the N40L, as Polanskiman says just disable C1E support in the bios, reboot & upgrade to 6.1.3. After the install finishes you'll get an update notice saying that update 4 is available, you can go ahead & apply it but be warned it will reboot your system again.

fell into that trap as well Disabled C1E and up it came

THANKS

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the excellent tutorial, Polanskiman.  I updated from 5.2 to 6.1.4 without any issues on my bare metal C2550D4I.

Looking at the specs of that board I noticed it's AMD based. Read the OP in that regard.

Thanks for your afford! You mean disable C1E? If yes i tried it, but still same :(.. I tried to enable/disable some another thing in bios, but withnout any success. So i did already about 100 reboot :D....

 

But its no problem, now i will stay with old DSM and maybe i will buy new motherboard or maybe original NAS from synology. But again big thanks for your help!

 

Meybe next version of loader will work if it will be new version of loader sometime.... :)

Hi, 

 

I'm currently running DS3615xs 6.0.2 with V1.01 on a Gen 8 Microserver. A few questions;

 

1. Which tutorial do I need to be following to update to the latest loader / DSM?

2. Can I go from 3615 to 916+ and is there any reason I should or should I just stick with 3615?

 

Thanks

Have a look at the FAQ's, there is a tutorial there.Personally with your hardware I'd stay with the 3615 image.

Read the OP. First paragraph. It's all there!

Stay with 3615xs.

Does anyone know how to solve the problem with SN? For some reason all SNs I generated following instructions on the first page didn't work. It is not accepted on my account. I upgraded from 3611xs to 3615xs.

I've tried the above tutorial but I have been unable to upgrade from DSM 5.2-5967 to 6.1.x using either :

DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.img

or

DS3617xs_DSM6.1_JunsMod_V1.02b_MBR_Genesys.img

 

The 2 above bootloaders simply won't boot.  I'm using a DV6 6053ea laptop (Intel, 4+years old), There is no option to disable C1E in the BIOS. I have entered VID, PID, Mac address and tried a few different serial numbers -  Nothing comes up on the screen. 

 

Only 

XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5967.1.img   will boot.

 

What do you think the problem is ?

The boot loader display is different for XPE6.x, check the FAQ for more info.

Does DS Assistant find the device?

Yes DS Assistant still finds the device. 

 

I'm trying to upgrade to DSM 6.X via the control panel but its stuck on 22% Preparing.  Only option is to refresh the window.

 

I will check the FAQ but I think it might be a hardware issue.
