I *think* the EZ Media and the IX2-ng share the same PCB. So here you can see if your PCB is missing more components than the Sata connector alone.

okay after trying to unsolder a sata header from a motherboard several times, just couldn't get one off intact. They cost like 8 bucks just for 1 of them ebay, or if I go to mouser.com, so I think I will just boot it from a flash drive to boot the ez media.
Any Ideas on the easiest way to have it boot from a flash drive?
I will have to change some variables on u boot I am guessing..

Basically you have to change the 'ide' commands to 'usb'. And hope that this particular u-boot supports usb booting.

All the good days.
Sorry for my bad english
Was I ever that ez media & backup
"Was" because the dead drive for the second time, and if I restored it for the first time, but now does not work.
I do everything on the instructions that are here, that the forum nas central, the result of one thrust flash drive, clamp reset, power, 20 seconds and the red light. different with different flash tried different drives. in any, direct trouble trouble
here please, guys, you can make an image of your hard drive with the OS installed (by itself without the content) and pour on to something exchanger, just try to deploy the image on the screw, to see help or not.
There are suspicions that the USB port on the popula poludohly, because they do not burn usb flash light.

Hmm, the system does not see the hard drive, what could be wrong? SATA port is dead? Tried different SATA cables, power supply check OK

  • Sata port dead.
  • Disk dead.
  • Bad electrical contacts in the sata or power connector.
  • Bad sata or power cable.
  • A disk which draws too much power for the internal DC/DC convertors.
  • A power supply which cannot deliver enough power.
Can you hear the disk spinup?

Hi,

I have changed stock Seagate HDD with WD Red 3TB. I have performed every step in instructions on this thread. But red light kept shining after 10s of white. Disk started to spinning every time. Changed 5 USB sticks and nothing helped. Until I didn't set partition mode to GPT with command: sudo parted /dev/sdb mklabel gpt and repeated dd of two files. I didn't create any partitions. After that installation went smoothly. I didn't hold reset button on power up.

Good luck!
