Hi,

 

I need some help !

 

I've been trying tutorials on the forum here but I cannot get my Xpenology upgraded from DSM 5.2-5967 to DSM 6.X.  The only thing I can do is get a better version of DSM 5 and I can do that via control Panel on the diskStation.

 

The bootloader I am using seems to be a discontinued one - the XPEnoboot 5.2-5967.1.  Its great for getting DSM 5 installed on a Hard drive with little effort.  There seems to be the new bootloader - Jun's loader - but it doesn't boot up on my machine while the older boot loader does.  Is there an XPEnoboot for DSM 6?

 

I've tried installing DSM 6.X via control panel (and XPEnoboot 5 ). it actually installs but then get an Execution error.  I've  all the usual like correct PID/VID/Mac Address/Serial Number correct and started in debug mode but get stuck.    Synology Assistant either says suitable for migration or recoverable but I have to wipe the HD and start again.  

 

Why does the loaders not boot ? Is there not something like XPEnoboot for DSM 6?  What are your suggestions

For DSM 6 Most people use jun's loader, however as you have discovered it does not contain as many drivers as the 5.2 loader. In order for you to get some assistance please list the hardware you are using i.e. motherboard, network card etc.

Thanks for your reply!  I didn't know about the drivers.  I'm using an old laptop before I move to NAS hardware I'm getting.

Check the bios sata mode is correctly set to ahci.

also make sure you are using a matching boot loader to the DSM - check the tutorials

I can't make any changes to the AHCI in the BIOS on this HP OEM laptop.  There are no options to change bar boot order, date time etc.

 

I was making sure that I had matching Bootloader and DSM but I couldn't even get the laptop to boot up, No text on screen, nothing.

 

I thought XPEnoboot 5.2 would be less advanced than Jun's loader.
