In order to install other software than Windows storage server I soldered the necessary wires to J23, connected USB to serial adapter and got access to BIOS. Did some changes - SATA to AHCI instead of RAID mode, BIOS size to 1280x1024 (it was too small and difficult to read), saved and now my DX4000 stuck at STARTUP INITIALIZING… Serial connection still works and I can see that boot process hangs with status A2.
Tried to reset BIOS settings as described here and it didn’t work. Removed all power and CMOS battery for long time, did reset again and still unable reset BIOS settings to default.
So, my NAS is unusable, but happily I don’t need to recover any data from it. Does anybody fell in this situation was able to recover? And how? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Another question - maybe J9 is not the CMOS reset jumper? On the PCB I see also
- J3 - (12 pin)
- J8 - (2 pin)
- J10 - (2 pin)
- J11 - (7 pin)
- J15 - (10 pin)
- J19 - (3 pin)
Does anybody know what are these for?
