Re: LENOVO EZ Media BK Center, HDD compatibility.

Oboe- I am new to the NAS world, so I think, naively, about the NAS operating system as I do about any Linux system: If the boot sector is where the boot code expects it, any size drive that is big enough will work.

Hello all- I am a new member, and I have been hanging out and reading. My first visit here, in August 2014, was to get help after I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 and discovered that Samba no longer worked. Tracking the problem down led me to a bug report https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10584#c...
