We do not recommend routine use of XPEnology!

For reliable operation of the DSM, you should buy the original product from the manufacturer!

If you are not yet familiar with the devices from the synology, it’s time to do it!
To get started, visit the company’s website Synology, read the line-up of this manufacturer.

Products Synology – this is a production which never disappoints user. One of the main business determines the direction of development of network storage devices are (Network Attached Storage) a new generation.


The heart of the device is its Synology operating system DSM (Disk Station Manager), which is used in all devices produced by Synology. It is a well-optimized Linux kernel, most of the changes which aims to work with hard disk drives (full list of compatible discs) and Raid arrays. As well it is composed of many Open source packages, details of which you will find just the manufacturer’s website. Let respects the company’s Sinology! They did a great job – their products are the best and we will tell why. Thanks to them!

DSM loved by many, but unfortunately Sinology not released a version for PC, the operating system is not compatible with the hardware of many PCs and servers are not produced by Synology.


Despite the fact that the development team was able to release the bootloader, allowing DSM run on almost any computer, we strongly recommend that you refrain from using a bootloader on production and buy it from the above-mentioned original products from Synology.
Use it at your own risk! we will not be held responsible for any data loss or broken machine.

What is XPEnology

XPEnology is a bootloader as IMG image. XPEnology compiled from the source code provided Sinology under license GNU. XPEnology and does not contain the operating system.
In addition to the kernel in the boot loader included some scripts and driver packages to work on most particular hardware platforms.

XPEnoboot is published by a team of contributors:

XPEnoboot is similar with Nanoboot, but added more drivers and fix some problems, the most important is that it support DSM5.1 installation (special thanks to Vortex).

    On the introduction page, under the DSM section, there’s a typo. Open source packages is spelt: “Open sorse packages”

      Yes, thank you, just can not find the time, the server is now ready to download files, and it will soon be launched.
      The site will also be slightly redesigned for comfort and will be a lot of useful information.

    Why people must list all your forum for found technical requirements? There are`t it, Anywhere!

    1. Neo Post author

      But I also agree with you, read hundreds of pages is not convenient and easier to see on the site, so we did.

    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 ))

    Estoy tratando de instalar y todo OK pero los discos no me los reconoce, los discos aparecen como NO ADMITIDO, intentado con VMware player, VMware Workstation y Virtual Box, todos los discos se ponen como SATA, creo que sería interesante hacer un XPEnoonbot para versión 6. Gracias.

    So… What is legal status o XPEnology, in US/EU/worldwide?
    Bootloader – certain, it’s ‘GPLed’, Synology special addons – IMHO it’s clear too, it is Synology copyrighted work, and what about DSM. which is downloaded from Synology websites at installation routine? Can we use it on baremetal machine in commercial without any legal issues? I mean no hacks on surveillance, no MAS&Serial cheats with synology accout.
