we just acquired an OBI-II DPS and it worked! For about a week... now it still seems to work, but the secondary processor won't boot. It seems that the HDD isn't accessible (doesn't show up in the BIOS as available).
So.... anyone got any suggestions on what can be done. I know it's considered a dinosaur; but it's our "new" pet. I'm wondering how long before the #1 processor drive might fail too (I assume at this point it might be better to leave the whole system running so the HDD doesn't need to spin up too often?)
1) Has anyone tried replacing/upgrading HDD in an OBS-II? (any luck with SSD or something else?)
2) Is it possible to clone the drive and copy it to a replacement of some kind? (I assume cloning the drive that will boot and putting clone into the #2 unit).
3) Is there a way to boot from a floppy or USB flash drive (since it has USB ports?)
Any other suggestions? (yes I may call Tech Support, but afraid of the cost of that route.....)
