I managed to find from a store two fully compatible Sentinel drives (WD2000F9MZ-76NVPL0 - original from WD) which are identical to the ones pre-installed on our two DX4000 NAS. I wanted to create a new install from scratch but for reasons I cannot understand it fails with error STORAGE BAD.
Sequence I made is the following:
- Wiped (diskpart clean) the disks
- Created USB recovery key from DX4000 ISO CD rom
- Installed two WD2000F9MZ hard drives in the Sentinel
- Started recovery with USB installed pushing the rear recovery button (confirmed from LCD)
But after one or two minutes from “recovery initializing” I get the message STORAGE BAD. What the hell I am doing wrong?
