Hello all,
(i'm french). My name is Christophe.

Buffalo offer me a TS XL-R5 few days ago, without HDD.
I phone support, and they told me that i need to réinstall firmware. They send me a link, with a procedure.

I fallowed it, but it doesn't work. So i phone a second time to support, and they sayed me that i should forget this NAS, or i could try to "Hack" it and install another firmware.
They told me that we canfound a lot of tutorial for this. But, i don't find anything who can help me for this.

Have you a idea ? or a tutorial ?

Thanks for your help.
Bests regards.

Christophe

What procedure did you follow?

I have a XEL and I have to insert all 4 drives to install the firmware.

Bonjour,
j'ai suivi la procédure donnée par Buffalo:

Mettre l'ip : 192.168.11.1 à mon ordinateur, le placer sur le même réseau que le NAS, et désactiver le parefeu
Allumer le NAS,
Une fois que l'écran du NAS est rouge, je lance "TFTP Boot Recovery TS-XL"
"TFTP Boot Recovery TS-XL" envoie les deux commande au NAS.

Sur "Buffalo NAS Navigatoré", lenas apparait.

Je lance donc : "TSUpdater" en ayant pris soi de modifier le fichier .ini :
Quote:
“Couldn’t confirm whether partition exists”
Si pendant la mise à jour du microprogramme vous avez une erreur similaire à “Couldn’t confirm whether partition exists”; veuillez suivre les étapes ci-dessous:
1) Parmi les fichiers décompressés de mise à jour ouvrez TSUpdater.ini à l’aide de Wordpad ou Notpad.
2) Modifiez le comme ci-dessous:
[Flags]
VersionCheck = 0 (Modifiez cette ligne de 1 to 0)
NoFormatting = 0 (Modifiez cette ligne de 1 to 0)
[SpecialFlags] (Ajouter la ligne suivante)
Debug = 1 (Ajouter la ligne suivante)


"TSUpdater" trouve le NAS, débute le transfert, et plante ...

Oops, i haven't see that i wrote french.
If you have problem to understand, i will rewrite it.

What is Xel ?

XEL is like XL but with less powerful CPU and less memory if I remember correctly.

I don't read French but the TFTP way should be correct.

Did you install all drives?
