My NAS recently got borked (see thread here), and because I’d already opened the case once in order to fix a SSH problem, I figured my warranty wouldn’t be honoured. So, I removed the 1TB drive, popped it into my desktop PC, and would now like to use a spare, compatible 250GB drive in the NAS instead.
It turns out WD have provided the source code for the OS, here. However, I have no clue how to use it in order to prepare the drive I have for use in the NAS enclosure. Could someone help me out here? I’m running OS X 10.6.8, but have Parallels running Windows XP SP2 if that helps. I also have VMware Fusion 4 if running a Linux distro makes things easier.
On a side note: does anyone here have good experiences of using other Linux OSes in this NAS? I notice that Debian has been used—any others?
