unfortunately the steps from the manual get me to the attached screenshot with nowhere to go.
there's to say that I got the console in this state and with a dead bios battery. the latter I've fixed so both screens work again. If i don't choose a full restore the console stalls waiting for the front panel to communicate. a forked way with 2 dead endings for the moment.
I ran it one time and it popped up a message. I re-ran the install and I had a successful installation.
thx for your reply and the detailed steps to take.
unfortunately none of the above works. a Full Restore while booting from USB stalls at the the point of which i took a screenshot with no option to select a different file, drive etc.
selecting a file from the Hog Start window as you suggested in step 5. isn't possible as the console doesn't even get that far booting.
Holding the Pig-key while booting doesn't work either as the front panel seems to be not being detected
I've figured that the front panel was connected to the wrong port at the time of purchasing the console and I corrected that 'glitch'. Also the bios battery was drained and I replaced it.
As of now the touch screens, while being routed usb-wise through the front panel, work and the panel gets power from the PSU as indicated by some leds of which I removed the foil that blackened them out..
By now I'm about to look for a working front panel while checking the one i have for whatever issue i might comer across.
