Reset resulted in a dead nas

Post by hobbs » Tue Sep 10, 2019 2:10 am

Well probably not dead.. its lights are flickering..
But thats it.

Done a factory reset, was fine. Turned it off, replaced the system drive.

Done a 10 Second reset.

Nothing.. Lights look fine.. but I cant access it.

The guides are so vague on this process.

I just want the entire thing wiped and formatted.. but it never seems to do anything post beeps.

The ip loads nothing.. Just says unavailable. I know boot up takes some time, but this is beyond that.

Briefly I saw a maintenance message.. now nothing.. I can hear it doing stuff which is odd..

Maybe its still resetting.. I literally have no idea..

Have I done this wrong? I brought it without drives.. didnt happen like this last time..

I can see it on my router.. same IP as before..

Models as 251+

I take it you found the NAS with QFinder after the reset but its not responding? have you tried booting with the all hard disks pulled out slightly so they are not connected?
