NAS Boot Help

by mrsubway / April 6, 2005 3:44 AM PDT

We have an Iomega NAS device at work. I need to do some software work, but the machine "freezes" on the Windows 2000 Server screen. I was told by Iomega it is SUPPOSED to do this, and then you can fix it remotely. Is there a way to boot into Windows normally? I can only boot into safe mode now. How do they get Windows to stop at the bootup screen, but actually continue booting?

No make/model so reload the OS and carry on?

Iomega P405M They say reformatting it will void the warranty. The unit also has no CD-ROM which makes life tough.

Looks like a bum post to me.

You have a NAS device and have posted in the Windows NT/2000 forum. As such, I can't do much about this but tell you to call IOMEGA and start the repair/support/return/refurb/retort cycle.

It's not a Windows 2000 machine or issue from what I see.
