    I have created new USB with XPEnoboot_DS3615xs_5.1-5055.1.img and system is booting and waits at the DiskStation Login: prompt. But Synology Assistant unable to detect the DS.

    I have generated and added valid pair of Serial number and MAC to syslinux.cfg file, also registered device on syno site.

    Please help
    Thanks in advance

    It makes no sense to upgrade to version 5.1 to 5055 when a brief released version 5.2

      I agree, Although I did try it myself, I have 2 different systems, Neither would even get past the Xpenology logo in the bootloader, would just freeze and hang right there.
