I recently got a Synology DS918+ NAS. I would like to replace the built in OS (DSM?) with just stock Debian (or Ubuntu). Is this possible? How can I do it. I've installed lots ofd Ubuntu/Debian servers and desktops, I've set up dozens of RAIDs, accessing this through a SSH terminal is my natural habitat. 🙂 However, I cannot see how to boot from the Debian netinstall USB stick I have.

Interesting project but why? What do you expect to gain.

You could run DSM and then Docker and/or Virtual Machine Manager for another OS.

Because I want to, because I know Debian/Ubuntu like the back of my hand, and I don't know anything about DSM. To me, a stock Debian/Ubuntu server is easier to use and more featureful.
