I am looking at installing OMV (maybe Debian first on this qnap.
I read this post but it's pretty old to start replying to and most of the other qnap posts where for different models.
ryecoaaron had it installed but had to replace the usb flash header card. Is the a needed step? I have been researching this for about a week and saw another post suggesting to just install grub on the dom to get around the size limitations and then install Debian on the actual hard drive? Any experience with this?
My hard drives are too big for raid 5 (I manage to loose one a year and am currently also having troubles rebuilding my array. It looks like raid may not be the best solution anyore due to URE and the disk sizes we have). QNAP software is built around raid so setting things to single disc mode makes a lot of other things really hard and snapraid seems perfect for my media center.
