      Thank you.

    could you send me an access to the package Surveillance or instructions how to install already purchased licences? Although I`ve tried to uninstall licenses from my DS Synology 411, “Synology” has refused to verify it in Xpenology.

    Surveillance Station works but we can not yet spread cracked programs, only the loader as this will already mean a violation of copyright law, but such a version exists and develops. Therefore, please do not write an e-mail, the page still does not – it is empty, be patient and everything will be!

    In addition, with respect to the engineers Sinology, it deserves respect, but its methods of fighting does not like us. They must understand that XPEnology – not it’s replacement devices!
    Thanks to us, it aftoritet in the community as a home and business users can increase compared to other manufacturers.
    Xpenology termination will result in an even greater loss, as more than 20 thousand different administrators may lose interest and will look for alternative solutions. But to solve not of us ))

    Hi there ,

    i have 2 mobo’s a ASUS and a MSI both i have used with 7 hdd’s , so put them in the pc case connected to 2 mobo and setup the bios so it starts up with the usb and installed XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5644.5 then setup that the pc turns off at 23.00 and turns on about 09.00 the next morning.

    until 23.00 sofar so good but the next morning when it must start on 0900 o clock the pc starts but it gives an error like cmos checksum bad press f1 ..bla bla Press f2 … bla bla .. and this is with both mobo’s the asus and msi ….

    anybody knows what’s happening … i dont know what to do anymore …..

      I’m facing exactly the same problem: I’m having a HP xw8200 Workstation Board.

      As soon as I boot the XPEnoBoot image (ver. 5.2.5564.5) – no matter whether with CD(iso) or USB(img) – and then doing a reboot, or shutdown and restart, the BIOS complains about a “CMOS checksum invalid, default values loaded”, and I have to press F1 to save the changes and continue boot. And after this, some (NOT ALL!!!) BIOS settings are reset to default values!
      e.g. the internal LSI-RAID controller: I set it do “disabled”, but after booting into XPEnoBoot and then doing a reboot, the RAID controller is “enabled” again! Or Hyperthreading: I “enabled” it, after XPEnoBoot it is “disabled” again. But clock, boot order, etc. are untouched.
      I thought then, perhaps leaving the BIOS settings to the default values might help. but same results: CMOS error after reboot… :-(

      I’m absolutely sure that it is NOT because of an empty mainboard battery, because if I boot into something different (e.g. Windows 7), everthing is fine after reboot or shutdown. But as soon as I boot XPEnoBoot again, the BIOS CMOS gets damaged or the BIOS itself gets modified!!!
      It looks like XPEnoBoot is chaning something in the BIOS settings, and the BIOS is (of course) complaining about this… :-(

      Any suggestions? Are there any kernel boot options which might help?
      It looks like it takes a long time at boot on the modules: ata_piix & mptspi. Perheps there is a problem with these modules loaded?


      1. Mbe

        Hi, One solution i did was to check if there is a sort of startup ,shutdown function in the setup of the motherboard
        if there is just setup the startup lets say 9.00 en then you setup the shutdown on the dsm .

        that worked for me ,now it starts up at 0.900 in the morning en it shutsdown at 23.00 nicely no errors .

        someone mentioned that you can pretect setup by a password , i havent tryed it so maybe youcould try it ..

        wel good luck on this ..

        greetings from mbe ..

    Hello community
    How can I get password for Packages page?
    Thanks a lot

  25. n40l-user

    I am having a lot of issues downloading the latest package version (5.2-5644) – especially the xpenoboot image file. Evrey time I try to download the file, it times out (via Cloudflare). The error page is suggesting that something is wrong at your end (under-resourced web server or similar).

    Can you please fix this issue, or direct me to an alternate download source for the file XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.2-5644.5.img

    Thanks in advance.

    I have just purchased a new Synology NAS DS716+II. The only SW I could load on this was DSM 6.1..
    Is there plans to upgrade “phpVirtualBox for Synology DSM” so it can run on DSM v6.1.x ?
