Dell R210 II with Jun's 1.02b loader not working.

Recommended Posts

Hi, Any one try Dell R210 II to install xpenology before? today I just bare metal install with generated SN/MAC , i can boot up the 8G usb drive, but cannot see the network IP using synology assistant.

I try BIOS and UEFI, the screen show Booting the kernel. (I success install xpenology in HP-G8, 40L, and the another DIY PC)

Is it picking up an IP address visible on your router/dhcp server?  When you say "generated sn/mac" are you not using your hardware mac?

 

If it is picking up an IP address, can you navigate directly to it?

 

I've seen it where going to find.synology.com works when the assistant doesn't (and vice versa)

Check your hardware spec and the embedded nics to make sure they are supported, and maybe use the enhanced extra.lzma by @IG-88. Others are having issues with the perc hdd controller , but network is ok. Also have a look at the system status through the onboard console, and make sure you have not connected that network port and nothing else :)

Try booting up with the ds3615xs 1.02b loader make sure you add extra.lzma as mention above there is a new version 4.1 and it's working with my Dell server, If you just use the plain loader it will not work... The nic drivers is what is causing this... Keep us updated if it works...

I have a Dell R210 (non generation II) and it's not working even with the injected extra.lzma file. :(  Any other options?

I just confirm success install xpenology

1.02b loader with extra.lzma 4.1

UEFI ok.

onboard lan and onboard SATA port ok.

 

Thx all

Got mine up and running.  I now have (2) R210's, (1) R610, and (1) R420 all up and running with XPenology.  All of them have their internal SATA/SAS ports disabled and have an E-SAS LSI Controller installed.  From there, they tie into a 60 Bay 45Drives Enclosure - Each one ties into one row of 15 drives (13 drives + 2SSDs).  All up and running without anything special required.  Just needed the 4.1 Extra file.  All good to go.  Thanks group!!
