Re: d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

Wow - thanks for the tutorial. I wasn't aware of the difference in the boot process for an embedded linux device. I guess I should read a little more about the d2 network/the d2 network 2, how it boots, etc.. I guess I could always try to get the latest flash image from lacie :lol: Although... I'm n...

Re: d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

Sorry - just for clarity - is it really the "boot manager" on the flash chip that needs to be replaced? Or is it the bootloader of the disk? I thought that in operating systems that support GPT-based boot through BIOS services rather than EFI, the first sector is also still used to store the first s...

Re: d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

But where is the fun, then? True :D - just a bit time pressured at the minute! I didn't realize the software was identical. At least that's half the battle. It's easy enough to get those images from the original disk (I think I actually have them at home on a Ubuntu pc...). Hmmmm... I think I'd sti...

Re: d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

Actually - a quick bit of google-fu reveals the following site where the guy has flashed a new bootloader using a running linux on his d2 Network 2. So that's all really interesting but... I have to admit I would just lose interest before I went to that level of hassle. For me: having to replace the...

Re: d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

Hmmm... thanks for that. I was kinda expecting that answer. I read through the article you linked to and while it's quite interesting (I hadn't seen that technique before!) I don't think I'll try that this time. I wasn't aware there were different hardware revisions of the d2Network2 (one non-GPT aw...

d2Network2 with a 4TB drive?

Hi folks, I have a 2TB d2Network2. I really like the NAS - but I've run out of space and wanted to put a 4TB drive in the enclosure. I removed the 2TB drive from my NAS and had a look at it. It has an MBR style partition table so the max partition size is 2TB (i.e. - I can't just clone that disk to ...
