Hi, I purchased an empty HS-DHTGL and I am trying to install 2 x 2TB WD Green drives in it.

I followed the instructions to install fresh drives and I'm now at the point where the TS will Boot into Emergency Mode and I can see it on my laptop (direct cable connection).
TSUpdator recognized the drive but when I hit Update I got:
"Couldn't confirm that a partition exists on the TARGET.
Updater will format the TARGET and will update the TARGET.
***All of data will be lost***
Do you want to format and update the TARGET?"

When I hit Yes I got:
Failed to formatting. (ACP_STATE_FAILURE)
Updating is aborted.

I edited lsupdater.ini as per the instructions in other posts and it now reads:
[Application]
Title = BUFFALO HS-DHTGL Upater ver.2.14
WaitReboot = 500
WaitFormat = 300

[Target]
ProductID = 0x00002006
Name = HS-DHTGL

[Flags]
VersionCheck = 0

[Special Flag]
Debug = 1

I then re-ran TSUpdater but when I right click on the symbol (or in the top bar) I just get Move, Close, and About as options... No "Hidden Menu" or Debug option.

Any help greatly appreciated. Just in case it's important one of the display screens on the TS says HD USED 1_2_3_4 but it only has 2 x Hard drives installed (in Bay 1 and 2).

Andy

Just tried after adding NoFormatting = 0 to the [Flag] list but same result :(

The thing I am a complete loss at is that I can't enter Debug Mode... Should this option be on the first panel I get when I start the Updater program? (with right click on top bar).

When I click the golden rings I get a drop down box with options to Move, Close, and Version.
No option to enter Debug Mode.

I'm running this on Win 7 and have tried starting normally and also as administrator

Aha... This was the version I got off the Buffalo website by putting the model number in. Is there a newer one that would work / other option? I have dual boot so I can run Ubuntu (that's how I got the partitions set up and kernal loaded) but I'm not fully conversant with linux.

The NAS is second hand but as far as I know it is unchanged. The drives are brand new and the NAS now boots but only into EM. My computer sees the drive and reports that it needs updating.
At the moment only the 1st drive has partitions and Kernel etc so it seems reasonable that the NAS is reporting it has a broken array?
I don't have an original drive or drive image to work from:( Hopefully I don't now have an expensive doorstop.
