New install DSM 6.1 on N54L? cannot find in LAN

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to install DSM 6.1 on my HP Microserver N54L, but no luck. I cannot find it with find.synology.com

 

Any idea? Which loader is required and are there any changes required in config files?

 

Any help is welcome

Hello, I had the same problem. Have you thought about disabling C1E support in bios

 

Not, yet. You were able to install it on your machine? 

Which bootloader did you use?

@webmagic You need to use jun's 1.02b loader & then most people choose the DS3615xs. You will also need to set the correct vid & pid of the USB stick & disable C1E support in the bios otherwise the N54L will not boot.

What hardware are you using? It's very hard for anyone to help you unless you provide adequate information..

I've got a HP microserver Gen 8 and have a strange issue. I've written Jun's loader to a microsd card and prior to installing the pat file I can see both of the nic's get an IP on the network and it is visible on find.synology.com. After the pat file is installed, the server reboots and I lose connectivity. Though I can see in the ILO console it does complete the reboot without any errors.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Fresh install (wiped drives) or is there an existing DSM setup on the drives?

Existing DSM setup on the drives as they initially show as migratable

try a 'cold boot' and see if the NAS appears ok (I've had situations where a restart does not load nic drivers properly)

Also, have you changed the extra.lzma to the enhanced file that contains updated modules/drivers? The DSM .pat could be overwriting 'working' drivers and the enhanced extra.lzma fixes that

Got it sorted, I had to use the synology assistant app which did find the static ip I had assigned almost a year ago and had bonded both nics, doh!

 Now, I just need to get carbonite working with DSM since crashplan no longer support home users :( 

 

p.s. Anyone looking to use a micro sdcard instead of a usb to boot synoboot can set the vid as 0424 and pid as 4030 on a HP microserver gen 8 to hide it from dsm.

People if you have your own specific issues please do not hijack other's people thread. Make a search first and if you can't find an answer then create your own topic.

Sorry about that, logic behind using this thread was, it was the closest thing I could find to my issue. I'll create a new thread next time.

@webmagic Were you able to install DSM 6.1 on N54L finally? If yes please provide some feedback so others can benefit from your experience. Thanks.

Yes, everything has been solved! And it's working now. Bios option is important.

I will try this on a HP Microserver N54L Gen7.

 

I had DSM 5.2 with nanoboot and tweaked BIOS ROM.

I will try to disable C1E in bios.

 

hopefully it will boot, because it didn't boot at all.

but i hadn't a USB keyboard to change the C1E in bios.

 

Let you guys know this afternoon.

Oooops...

 

Well i updated it trough DSM to update 5. Latest software.. and works like it should.
