Long story short - I have a DX4000 with a mish mash of HDDs in there :-
2- WD2000F9YZ-09N20L1 (WD replacement)
and I wanted to factory my unit.
I was given a new ISO (EMEA_SvrRecovery_1_7_6_21.iso) – which I believe has downloaded ok.
Quick question - what’s the ‘quickest’ way of re-doing it from scratch?
I’ve ensured the ‘ServerFolders’ were empty - as I didn’t want loads of data on there, but i’m thinking it’s going to be easier to wipe each drive in another system?
I was getting the 0xD9 error - but I re-created storage and it corrected that - I could boot Windows again, but I just want to start again.
At the moment, it says “Recovery started” - and it’s done (i’d estimate) less than 10% of the loading bar for ‘Formatting the hard drives’ in just over a day. I’ve read it might take 6 days for some functions, but there’s no way this is going to even format in 6 days.
Can I wipe the units in another system, recreate storage and then re-run the recovery to reinstall the OS?
