Is it possible to remove all things WD from the boot and create a custom installation of say Ubuntu instead?
For me this is a 3TB hard drive with a small computer board and I frankly don’t see why it couldn’t be done. If anyone has done this and not bricked it I’d be interested to learn more.
I have bricked my machine, and restored it to it’s WD default.
I’ve tried adding a hostname that I point to my home ISP but I get this when I try to activate it:
cannot occur within section
Action ‘configtest’ failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.
Which leads me to believe the WD proprietary software is interfereing with basic VirtualHost capabilities and I am not sure how to over-ride it. I really don’t care too much about the /UI dashboard, it’s rather boring and too consumery for me.
Anyway, if no-one has done it, no biggie, I might just try installing it via SATA to USB on a Linux machine and see what happens if anything. Of course I do realise I will be tredding on thin ice, but I am willing to take the risk. Don’t care about the warranty.
