Everything is OK except the HDD smart control which is not seen through a passthrough.
I would have paid for such a feature but Synology is not currently providing it.
Now with respect to copyrights, I hereby ask Synology whether I shall provide this to others, them included if they want to commercialize it.

Currently I have a cdrom image that is bootable and allow one to either run the installed system or build it for new disks. But this is still version 2.3 hence I should do it over again with 4.0 and write down the steps.
From what I remember I had to rebuild the kernel and erase the comments that prevent the tty console from compiling. Then I either made some changes within the init script or simply bypassed the init with init-/bin/bash at kernel boot. From there you can test and performed a step after another the install scripts.
As mentioned this is now old, so I should definitively start over from dsm 4.0 once I get some time and update this forum.
By the way any help is welcome.
