Empty 5Big enclosure not booting

Post by ogel009 » Wed May 08, 2013 7:26 pm


I have a Lacie 5Big Network 1 with no hard drives in it, an empty 1TB Western Digital hard drive and an empty 500GB Western Digital hard drive.
When I power on the unit it shows the blinking blue light, showing it's booting. Once it has booted it goes to blinking red, indicating it isn't working
properly. It behaves like this with and withoud (a) disk(s) installed. I came to understand the OS is installed on the hard drives therefore I need to get
the OS on the hard drives before installing them? How can I do this?

Also, it is not appearing on the network. I used the Lacie Network Assistant to search for it, even tried to wake it but it doesn't show up.

Any help would be more than welcome.
