Mine must not be doing a consistency check then. I think the 1955 ruined something. It was blinking "blue" for more than 72 hours without a response. No disk access lights. Just the random LAN light blinks. I removed the USB drives and the ethernet cables and tried again. Still nothing after 20+ hours. Not even "pingable."
With the internal harddrives undocked, it boots up, SA recognizes it, but states DSM is Not Installed and the orange light is blinking...hot plugging the internal drives does nothing. Restarting the box...starts the process over ad nauseum.
Crap...had to install DSM from the image and of course lost my system OS partition. Not a happy camper since I had everything backed up except the system OS partition. Data volume was still accessible, but recreating my setup will be a time consuming process.
Any suggestions on the best method to backup the system OS partition once I get it set up? The "normal" backup solutions only seem to backup the shared volumes and the configuration information, but not the optware and 3rd party apps, etc.
