First, once again, I am puzzled by the fact that the MAC Address that I found, was different that the one i have registered for the drive (which is also the one the label) booting from a pendrive should NOT change this…should it?
Anyway, moving on.
No luck with PuTTY, finally I connected using Windows Telnet client and i got a prompt /#
I wrote and enter all the commands always ending with a prompt back…
Except when I entered umount /mnt/root /mnt/usb
I did not get a prompt back, just the cursor.
Minutes went by, I started typing, but nothing really happened.
After an hour or so…, I closed the window, unpluged the drive and plugged it back on
To my (sad) surprise the drive started with a blinking blue light, and after about 30 seconds, it changed into a red blinking light…
I finally got to how PuTTY worked, (I was using as SSH when I was supposed to used TELNET), anyway, tried the same procedure with PuTTY and with a couple of telnet clients, but I always get to the unmount command then nothing… last time, I left it there, writing NOTHING after the umount command and hitting ENTER, for 8 hours. Still nothing happened. Still blinking red light when it turns on without the pendrive
What happens on the umount command? - I’m no unix user, i read about the command, but i just don’t know why I don’t get ANY response from it… is there any way of knowing what`s going on?
Better yet, any alternative procedure?
PS: The drive seemed to be working (reading/writing noises) all through the night (it was on my bedside table)
