Re: ReadyNAS LED patterns

Thanks, I've read the wiki and the other LED guides. HC isn't an issue because the unit has not been modified. I purchased it with the drives pre-installed.

It's obvious it's stuck somewhere in the boot process and booting it with a new image doesn't help. Is there anything else I can try?

Have you tried a factory defaults boot? (warning: erases all data)

That post is almost a year old, so they probably already got somewhere with it.

Re: ReadyNAS LED patterns

And yet we still do not have a description of DUO LED patterns anywhere that I can find.

✓ ReadyNAS DUO LED patterns

Until I post the FAQ, here is the info for reference:
LED blink behavior for 2 disk systems is three quick blinks of all disk LEDs and the backup LED, followed by an 1s delay, followed by a number of slow blinks.  The number of slow blinks will be the error code.

Current error codes:
1 - Vendor mismatch
2 - No disks detected
3 - Bad contents on root partition of disks
4 - Flash error
5 - Unsupported RAID configuration
